The only real cruising opportunity to Europe with your dog or cat is aboard the Queen Mary 2. Two years ago we reported that the Queen Mary provided for a dozen kennels for passengers pets on the journey from New York to England. Subsequently since that time the Cunard Line has spent $132 million in renovations that include new accommodations for both four legged and two legged passengers.
The ship will now accommodate twice as many pets – increased from 12 to 24 kennels. In addition to the increased kennel space the new canine quarters has added more walking and play space and a lounge for the pet’s owners. Two items added are an authentic New York City fire hydrant and a British lamp post.
Animal waste is removed with a poop-scoop and flushed in a special toilet. Dogs rarely become sea sick, but the area is deep-cleaned after each voyage.
