I don’t know what line you are cruising with, but according to the Carnival Cruise FAQs, if fish are caught while on an excursion, the excursion company must ship the fish home. Guests are forbidden to bring the fish onboard.

Hope you enjoy your cruise and fishing excursion.

If you ship it home, it will be the most expensive catch you've had. My friend shipped salmon and halibut from and Alaskan excursion - $$

I don't know about now but we had a quite easy time doing it last year. If trout fishing is what you are after there, then it's twice as easier. I was there with my kids, turned out to be a good idea to prepare them for their woodland trip and teach them how to fish. For us it was basically the way it's described here: They fished 10 kgs of fish overall!

I don't understand. There are no trout in Roatan. The original poster wanted to know if the cruise ship would preserve them and ship em home..or if anyone would. I don't under stand what that link has to do with it.

Good to know.

May be hard to get through Customs. Importing fresh food and veggies are a GIANT No-No last time I checked.

Really liked it there, yes. Also recently became a fan of the Una river: It's even better for hiking in some places. I highly recommend it.
