Default No petting allowed!

After reading of Jennifer's dilemma with her Oscar, I thought too of how nice it would be if the cruise lines had pet cruises. Since many of the cruisers are pet owners (slaves) it would be cool to take the little guys with us once in a while. And some of them are better behaved than the adults I've encountered.

I realize it is probably not feasible or reasonable, but when I buy my first cruise liner there WILL be a pet cruise.




Regards,
Thomas

I think a pet-friendly cruise ship would be great! After all, once I went to a bed & breakfast that had cats roaming the hallways & you were welcome to pick one up & take it in your room if you wished!

Did you ever see the movie Titanic? Remember the part where a lady carried her Pomeranian dog on to the lifeboat? Well, that was historically accurate. Dogs were allowed on ocean liners in those days, but only in some classes. But I've yet to figure out how the sanitation problem was handled, or what the dogs did for activities.

They've figured out how to handle the sanitation of 2000 guests and 1000 crew. What's a few hundred puppies?

I tried to pass my cat off as a seeing eye cat but the cruise line didn't buy it. I'm trying to train him to become a fur collar but his ears keep moving, back to the drawing board. Actually my cat is so needy that I travel just to get away from him, I was looking forward to the empty nest syndrome, what was I thinking?????

TRhe biggest problem is the differant laws from all these differant countries concerning live animals and quarentines. Just not reasonable.

Owner or slave to five dogs, two cats, two birds and dozens of fish?
C'mon now, we know you are really your pet's servant.

WHEW! It would be funny to see the gripes about seeing somebody's dog peeing on a deck chair or cat spraying in a lounge, not to mention certain odors that could potentially be on a pet friendly ship. If people think that parent's don't control their kids as they should at times, imagine complaints about cats, dogs, etc. (esp if fido's collar breaks when he sees fluffy the cat in the atrium). I also imagine a barking dog alone in a cabin while owners enjoy casino could cause quite a stir. That same lonely barking dog would also be a JOY to the cabin steward who would have to clean up the "I'm unhappy" messages he or she would leave for owners.
