Default Dogs on the QE2

I've heard many times that you can bring your dog on the QE2. Has anyone done this, or know how much it costs (the dog's "ticket")? Also, given the strict quarantine laws in Great Britian, what happens to the dog when you get there? Would it have to be quarantined even if you plan to fly right back? I know this sounds stupid, and I probably never will do this, but we were discussing this with friends last night and I was just curious.....Thanks!

You would either have to do back to back cruises or get off in France. Britain is very, very strict about quarantine - and I don't blame them. They've been free of rabies for many, many years and aim to keep it that way.

Hi, Rick ...

There is a six-month quarantine in GB. I just did an article about Seeing Eye dogs and not even they are let offboard in GB.

From my research, at least Seeing Eye dogs (or other helping dogs) don't have to pay for passage. I don't know about the family pet.

Britain has changed somewhat on the quarantine. I pulled this from the British " Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs"

The Pet Travel Scheme (PETS) is the system that allows pet animals from certain
countries to enter the UK without quarantine as long as they meet certain
conditions. It also means that people in the UK can, having taken their pets to
these countries, bring them back without the need for quarantine.

PETS was introduced for dogs and cats travelling from certain European countries
on 28 February 2000. The Scheme was extended to Cyprus, Malta and certain
Long Haul countries and territories on 31 January 2001.

Pets resident in the UK can, having travelled to one or more of the countries
below, return to the UK under PETS without quarantine provided they meet the
rules of the Scheme. Pets that come from one of these countries and have been
resident in any of them for at least six months can also enter the UK under the
Scheme as long as they meet the necessary rules.

Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Gibraltar
Greece, Iceland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway
Portugal, San Marino, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, VaticanAntigua and Barbuda, Ascension Island, Australia, Bahrain, Barbados, Cayman Islands, Bermuda, Fiji, Falkland Islands, Guadaloupe, French Polynesia, Jamaica, Hawaii, Martinique, Japan, Mayott, Mauritius, New Caledonia, Montserrat, Réunion, New Zealand, St Kitts & Nevis, St Helena, Singapore, St Vincent, Wallis and Futuna
