Once when we were on a Celebrity ship, a woman had a small dog cruising with her. Min Pin. She was the wife of a baseball teams owner and had the best suite on the ship. I think they gave them SPECIAL consideration. The poor little thing looked miserable. She took it everywhere. It was on the deck for several hours on a HOT lounge chair. She took it dancing with LOUD music in the evening. I totally understand why service dogs need to be able to come, but not spoiled rich peoples little dogs. I have three Chihuahuas and would never subject them to the riggers of cruising. It would have been happier staying home with a sitter. They could have made arrangements for it, like we all have to with our pets when we cruise.
