Going walkies in mid-Atlantic

Home/Cruise News/Going walkies in mid-Atlantic

Let me start with an apology: The list of “Useful Links” on the right of this screen has been pretty useless for a few weeks as many of the links need updating. That process is in hand, and should be sorted soon.
One of the links that does still work is to Alastair Greener’s We Are Cunard blog about life on board Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria, as well as updates on the progress of the line’s newest ship, Queen Elizabeth.
Alastair’s latest entry reveals a unique feature of the QM2 – the kennels. Yes, cats and dogs can cross the Atlantic in almost as much comfort as their proud owners (as long as they have the right paperwork of course).
The behind-the-scenes tour, and interview with kennel-master Dayle Mercado, is fascinating, but what really got me was the short video created by passenger Nikki Moustaki, who recently sailed with Pepper, one of her rescued Schnauzers.
It’s great fun. Take a look . . .

    I had no idea there was a kennel onboard the QM2, what a great feature! Thanks for sharing the video.
