Default kennels on board?

Hi,

Has anyone brought their dog on board and used the kennel? We might have to on a cruise on the QM2. I know no one knows what the kennel will be like on that ship, but maybe it will be similar to the one on QE2? Was wondering was the fee is, what it includes (food, etc), what the accomodations are for the dog, who monitors the kennel, can we visit the dog, and is there an outside play area. Thanks for any info!

Why would you "have to" bring a dog on a cruise?

I know that on QE2 - the Kennels are near to the Stack. They are taken out on deck for walkies and there is even a lamp post for them. Of course - it's kept pretty clean - but since dogs used lamposts as newspapers (ie. They pick up the local gossip via sniffing) it's quite a novelty.

QM2 Kennels are aft on the starboard side - dick 12 or 13 I think. Whether there will be a lamp post remains to be seen............

Ps. Yes you can visit the kennels. Anybody can if they ask.

You can visit your pet at ANY TIME but you may have to put in a special request. You can also say that your pet DOES NOT WANT any visitors. On certain curises there may be "too many" people who want to see the kennels. This all applies to the QE2.

Some people "have" to relocate from Europe to the US and this is one of the best ways to do it, especially if you have pets and automobiles. So think about it, "having" to bring a pet aboard requires a little understanding from those who don't fully appreciate the struggles of moving residences around the globe.

A lady we spoke to had inspected the kennels on the 1 May crossing. She said they were impressive although she did not see any dogs in them. They are on deck 12 or 13 at the top of the ship.

I have travelled on the QE2 and used the kennels when I was relocating from the U.S. to Europe. The facilities were excellent, the dog even had his own sun deck to walk on. There were two other dogs as well as a cat when we travelled. I have been told that the QE2 kennel doesn't exist anymore since its transatlantic service has stopped.

Also, the QM2 kennel will not be open until the April, 2005 cruise. Some sort of delay in obtaining licenses...

What business is it of yours? Just trying to belittle someone without knowing anything about their life?

I'm confused - did I miss the point here? I've read back the various posts and don't understand your comment.

I think pratt felt the comment about :
"Why someone would want to take a dog on a cruise "was insulting in tone.

I also took it as such.

People of various lifestyles and countries include their pets in their outings.

It is rather refreshing to see as we also are pet lovers and miss our babies when we are away.

But remember some people also have show dogs and may be taking them over to Europe to compete in contest.

Hopefully these posts have opened some eyes who could not see.
