Travelling with a pet on board Normandie Express

We're looking forward to welcoming you and your four-legged friend on board Normandie Express. 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 aren't allowed in public areas of the ship (except registered assistance dogs); they must remain in your vehicle.

  • We strongly recommend opening your vehicle window to provide ventilation during the sailing and leaving some water for your pet.
  • The garages may be warm when you first park, but once the ship is at sea, the temperature is carefully regulated and inspected regularly

Please note that access to the garages during the crossing is forbidden and there are no visits on this service.
