Sea travel will be expensive, and extremely dangerious.

Okay while I don't think this is a problem, pirate guilds will control the sea's and have the power to perma anyone who refuses to follow their rules.

With multiple pirate guild likely to pop up with in the different kingdoms, one will need to be rich enough to bribe their way to safety as they travel to other islands or continents, or even from one kingdom to the other.

This is a consequence of kingdom borders ending at the shore, and death past the visible shore is perma death. Now I don't think this is bad because it adds a level of risk which will be exiting.

Without kingdoms having jurisdiction over the seas, that means they can not prosecute or punish those who kill on the seas, making it legal anarchy. No court, no king, no dutch, no officer, no count, and no mayor can protect someone outside of their jurisdiction.

With perma on the sea's it means that you better do what they say and know where one guilds territory ends and when the next one begins or they can simply destroy your boat or ship and you will drown and that is the end. This applies to all players including the kings.

So basically unless you are in the good graces of, or escorted by, the pirates, sea travel will be fight for the death

Privateers will be the real threat due to having actual supply lines backing them.

The question is how far they can go without it blatantly becoming an act of war.

See that's where it becomes complicated. Say its two Kingdoms that dont share a border and thus it would be far too expensive and logistically complicated to actually conduct war against one another. That means this kind of maneuvering against each other at sea becomes how they compete. It happened between the European Nations at one point in history. Privateer Guilds could be how you go to war without going to war.
