Travelling With Pets/Animals

Can I take my pet to Europe?


Yes, you can take your pet on all vessels to Europe without them being subject to quarantine laws on re-entry to the UK. Your pet can travel in the car or in the on board kennels (where available) and you can visit during the crossing, subject to weather conditions and staff discretion. 


Please ask at the information desk about possible access times once you board. Please note, we cannot allow pets on the passenger deck except for guide dogs. 


Certain breeds of dogs are more sensitive to heat/poor air circulation in vehicles. We would advise owners to take extra precautions and to use the kennel facilities where available.
