Cunard’s Remastered QM2 Features More Kennels

As the only passenger vessel to carry dogs and cats, Queen Mary 2 has expanded its kennel service during its multi-million dollar renovation. Pet travel has soared over recent years and due to increased demand, Cunard has added 12 new kennels for a total of 24.

In addition, the ship extended the kennel area, adding an owner’s lounge, new pet playground, and a larger outdoor area with an historic English lamppost and American fire hydrant so canines from both sides of the pond will feel at home.

Cunard’s pet-friendly policy dates back 176 years to the maiden voyage of the Britannia in 1840 when the ship sailed with a cow to provide fresh milk for passengers. Famous canines such as Rin-Tin-Tin, Elizabeth Taylor’s pampered pups and the Duke of Windsor’s dogs traveled on Cunard and to continue that tradition, NYC’s top Instagram dogs, @ChloeTheMiniFrenchie, @WallytheWelshCori, and @EllaBeanTheDog, joined Cunard on board the ship to cut the ribbon on the new kennels

And, of course, the dog's names are put on each of the kennels.
