Zero Tolerance Policy

Holy Ship has a strict zero tolerance policy and terms and conditions for each sailing that all passengers must acknowledge and agree to prior to sailing. You will be embarking Holy Ship in PortMiami and passing through security run by MSC, PortMiami, and Customs and Border Protection - a division of Homeland Security. Your person and your luggage can and will be searched by security and by dogs in the Port and at any time on the ship. Forget about your right to privacy, you are passing through a port and traveling internationally where all local and federal laws apply and are strictly enforced. Every person and each piece of luggage will be inspected by dogs trained to detect all illegal contraband and prohibited items including drugs and alcohol. Anyone found to be violating the law and/or in possession of illegal controlled substances or prohibited items (weapons, illegal controlled substances, etc) will be turned over to authorities and banned from all future events. Anyone found to be in possession of or under the influence of any illegal controlled substances while on board will be turned over to authorities in the next port of call with no refund issued. You will be required to sign an acknowledgement of MSC's drug and alcohol policy prior to boarding. For more information on what to expect at embarkation, please visit TSA
