* Service Animals Information

Here are some general guidelines for service animals on airlines:

1. Service animals are defined as dogs or, in some cases, miniature horses that are trained to perform tasks for people with disabilities.

2. Emotional support animals (ESAs) are not considered service animals under the ACAA, but some airlines may allow them to fly with their owners if they have proper documentation.

3. Service animals are usually allowed to sit with their handlers in the cabin, but they must be well-behaved and under control at all times.

4. Some airlines may require that service animals wear a harness or vest, and they may have specific size and weight restrictions.

5. Airlines may limit the number of service animals on a flight, so it's important to notify the airline in advance if you plan to travel with a service animal.

6. Airlines may require that service animals be checked in at the airport, rather than brought through security and into the cabin. This is to ensure that the animal is properly screened and to prevent any disruption during the flight.

It's important to note that each airline may have its own policies regarding service animals, so it's a good idea to check with the airline directly before booking your flight.d

Cruise Pet Policy

1. Most cruise lines do not allow pets onboard, except for service animals.

2. Some cruise lines allow pets on certain itineraries, but you need to check with the cruise line directly as the policies vary.

3. If pets are allowed on a specific cruise, there are usually restrictions on the size and type of pets allowed, and they must be kept in designated areas on the ship.

4. There may be additional fees and paperwork required to bring a pet onboard, such as health certificates and proof of vaccinations.

5. It's important to note that even if a cruise line allows pets, it's not always the best option for your furry friend. The environment onboard can be stressful for some animals, and they may be better off staying at home or in a pet-friendly hotel.

I hope this information is helpful. If you have a specific cruise line in mind, I can look up their pet policy for you.
