As the person asking the question, I can assure you I am not joking. I need to take my pets to Finland where they will be living. Some companies (e.g. Finnlines which sails from Germany to Finland) do take pets.

Aha. Another prime example of where the OP does not explain the situation thoroughly thus getting incorrect answers. Your question reads as 'can I take my fluffy kitten on a cruise' - to which the correct response is 'you are joking' (although Cunard do have kennels on their transatlantic cruises only this will not apply on Baltic itineraries). However if you had initially stated that you wanted to export your pets to Finland, then perhaps people would have responded advising the need for the pet passport and check with the ferry companies. It is all in the manner of asking you see.......

It is most unlikely. Check with the cruise company. I have never seen pets on board on many cruises.

Where would the pets do thier toilet, I can just imagine it being done on deck while someone slips and falls on it ugh. I love pets but would not like to see them on a cruise ship .

Actually guide dogs are allowed on ships, and there are also dogs that are an 'alert mechanism' when their owners are about to have an attack. For these animals the ship will put out a square of turf about 4' by 4' on a secluded part of the deck, which the dog can p**p on, and then the p**p can be scooped up.

Why is it all about the kids?

By Leanne Mudd

Royal Caribbean announced last month the exciting new features for Independence of the Seas after her refit in early 2018, but I can’t help feeling it’s all about the kids! And what are we going to loose on board to make room for these new features as they are not building an extension to accommodate it all.I sailed on this ship when she first launched back in 2007 and loved it back then. When i went back in 2016, it felt like she hadn’t changed, which in some ways was good ...

The UKs favourite family ship ...

By Rosie Taylor

Rosie Taylor's blog

The Independence of the seas first sailed over 10 years ago now and has spent most of the summer months sailing out of Southampton. The ship is purpose built to deal with all sorts of weather and is very popular with the Brits.It doesnt matter who you ask about the Independence… they always have great feedback and find it hard to look at other ships as an alternative.Just recently, however a few have said the carpets are a bit worn in the cabins, could do with a lick of paint, the smoke...

Will I be below the water line?

By Jo Cunningham

Jo Cunningham's blog

“Will I be below the water line?” is a question that I am frequently asked when selling both river and oceans cruises. For an oceans cruise this is a simple question to answer, as whilst the lower deck cabins are numbered 1 or 2 and sound close to the water, there are always at least a couple of crew decks below, meaning that even on a low passenger deck you are still very clear of the water.River boats are smaller though and typically only have 3 or 4 decks to them, with deck ...
