Travelers may embark from a dozen ports around the world; the US ports are Ft Lauderdale, Los Angeles, and New York. Dogs are allowed on board and preplanning is highly recommended as there are only a limited number of kennels. Depending on the destination, certain preparations must be made for the dogs that usually take up to about 6 months prior to the trip: example – blood work, shots, destination requirements, etc. One kennel will accommodate dogs 25 pounds and under; dogs over 25 pounds will need 2 kennels. A Kennel Master is always on duty to see to the walking, feeding, and cleaning of their canine guests. Each kennel costs $700 per trip.
