Guide Dogs

If you rely on an animal to help you do everyday things, then you’re welcome to bring them along. We can provide small relief areas for them – please inform us at the time of booking in order for our Special Services team to arrange onboard clearance.  Please be aware that the care and supervision of the service animal is the sole responsibility of the owner, the ships are not required to provide food or care for the animal.


Guests are responsible for obtaining all required permits for the animal to depart the ship in a non U.S port.  A copy of these permits must be taken onboard the ship and a copy left with the Guest Relations Desk upon boarding.


Please note: On sailing's to the United Kingdom (UK), service animals are only permitted on the Independence of the Seas provided they meet the strict DEFRA requirements.  Service animals will not be permitted to disembark the ship at any port of call prior to entry into the UK.
