In my experience, I would leave the firearms at home. I''m a native Texan that grew up hunting, I still enjoy wing shooting to great extent. As far as big game I have slowed down and spend less than 7 days a year hunting large game.
As far as hunting overseas you will find most in countries it is very difficult and expensive to obtain license and permit, specially for foreign visitors. The countries that rely on hunting tourism will have ample firearms available to use. If you want to cruise than cruise, if you want to retire and spend your days hunting than do that, but the two do not mix well. It is a major inconvenience to check your weapons at ports which will allow it, some will not even allow you in with firearms. You could risk getting your boat seized in certain areas if caught carrying it illegally, which in some places means carrying it at all. You will find your cruising experience much more enjoyable without the hassle of dealing with guns.
