I loved reading about Shadow and about your trip. Here's a question: Are dogs other than service animals allowed on the ship? When we cruised, there was a young couple with a Weenie-Dog on board. I'm assuming Daushaunds are not generally used as service animals, although I am admittedly ignorant in thei regard. It was the cutest little thing, and we really enjoyed seeing his costumes on Pirate Night, etc., but I was suprised Disney allowed a dog on the cruise that was not a service animal.
