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.

In this day and age it is a sad problem for basic hygiene!It is not something you like to talk about, but were a bunch of germ-laden conveyors of infectious diseases. It doesnt take a rocket scientist to know the s those people you see tr...

Norwegian Cruise Line to Add ...

I find it hard to believe that given the amount of family friendly cruise options around these days, all of which include swimming pools, some even large scale on board water parks that it’s not compulsory for cruise companies to employ lifeguards, especially when you consider some of the recent tragedies that have occurred.Norwegian Cruise Line have announced that it will be joining Royal Caribbean and Disney Cruise Lines in employing certified lifeguards at all of the family pools acr...
