Most cruise ships won’t let you bring your pet along due to sanitary reasons and possible allergy reactions among other cruise ship guests. However, if the thought of cruising the open waters without your beloved cat seems hollow, Cunard Cruise Lines offers a limited number of pet-friendly cruises.

Such pet-friendly cruise ships let you check your pet into a kennel on the ship that provides play time and activities to keep all pets safe and happy. Then you can visit your pet during the day and play with them so they won’t feel left out of your vacation. While you may not bring your pet all over the cruise ship, it’s far better than completely leaving your pet behind at home or in a kennel.
