Travelling with a pet on board Etretat

We're looking forward to welcoming you and your four-legged friend on board Etretat. We hope that this information will help you understand what to expect when boarding the ship, during the sailing and prior to disembarkation.

Before you arrive

  • We recommend that your dog has been exercised and toileted before boarding the ship


  • Your dog's chip will be scanned and your Pet Passport checked
  • We will place a sticker on your car windscreen to ensure you're parked appropriately on board
  • Please do not remove this sticker until having exited your port of arrival

On board

Pets are only allowed in pet-friendly cabins and designated exercise areas but not in any other public area of the ship (except registered assistance dogs).

  • Once you have parked in the garage, a member of our crew will greet you and show you to the external stairs which take you to your pet-friendly cabin on deck 6
  • At this point we will also give you the code to access your cabin


  • On arrival, we will invite pet owners, over the tannoy, to return to their cabins and collect their pets. At this point you'll be allowed to return to your vehicle using the same exterior stairs.

Whilst transferring your dog from your vehicle to your cabin and again back to your vehicle, it must be muzzled and on a lead. This also applies when in the pet exercise areas.

For operational reasons, these procedures are subject to change. Please follow the instructions given to you by our crew. For further information, you can visit the information desk on deck 5.
