Are service animals allowed onboard a Royal Caribbean cruise ship? What about emotional support animals?


Service Animals

Yes, we accept service animals on all our ships. Please see our Service Animal section for more details about our service animal policies.

Guests traveling with a service animal should contact Accessible Shore Excursions to review guidelines and arrange special accommodations on tours.

Emotional Support Animals

We’ve recently changed our policy on emotional support animals onboard our ships. Our policy now differentiates emotional support animals from service animals that are trained to perform a function for a person with a disability. Service animals will continue to be welcomed onboard for guests with disabilities. We will no longer have emotional support animals onboard.

We know this may be disappointing to some, but our decision was made to ensure we consistently deliver a great vacation experience for all our guests. As we transition into our new policy, guests that already processed a request to bring their emotional support animal on or before July 30th, 2018, will be allowed to do so on their existing cruise.
