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.

By Josephine Wright

Josephine Wright's blog

I’m finally back I apologize profusely to all my customers who thought I was only going to be off for a week and must admit so did I. I have had a small operation on my shoulder that turned out to be a little bit more painful than I thought it would be but now I’m back and raring to go, So to pick up where I left off, I did promise some more details on Independence of the Seas from when I was on board and the next bit is going to be all about that. So what did we do while we were ...
