Are you looking for an amazing travel experience that you can enjoy with your dog? Have you ever considered a Cunard Line cruise? Then you’re in luck since Cunard Line is in fact dog friendly!

According to Bring Fido,

"Nowadays, you’re invited to travel with your Terrier between Southampton, England and New York on board Cunard Line’s Queen Mary II, the most famous pet-friendly cruise ship in the world. The ship features a large pet area with 24 kennels, a lamp post for British Bulldogs and a fire hydrant for their American cousins. And, Queen Mary II employs pet specialists to make your pooch’s travel as comfortable as possible."

Sounds amazing right? We happen to think so. However, it is important to note that they do not consider themselves to be a cruise ship or cruise line, but rather a trans-Atlantic crossing if you do a trip from New York to Southampton, England. (This is specific to the QM2 crossing and the offerings this ship gives to travelers.) Sure, you’ll have all the perks and experiences we often associate with a cruise, but this is truly a crossing as there are no stops between the two countries.

Cunard Line let’s you set sail with your dog at your side

If you’d like to learn more about the pet and animal situation on Cunard line ships, check out their Pets on Board page which actually goes into detail about the history of animals crossing the high seas with the help of Cunard and their ships. From cats and dogs to elephants and even a few birds, there are any number of animals who have traveled with the company over the years.

For us, this is not only fascinating it also great news if you happen to be looking for a way to travel with your dog or cat. Maybe you just want to get away for a few weeks without actually going anywhere, that is actually an option with a trans-Atlantic crossing like what the QM2 offers. Or perhaps you want to truly get away and explore the world, with Cunard, you can do that too.

We highly recommend checking out their itineraries and trips as that will give you a better idea of where you can go and what accommodations can potentially be made for you and your furry friend. Honestly, as one of the few lines that offers pet accommodations, we think it is worth checking out if you have ever wanted to take a cruise with your dog at your side.
