Living the Dream... 3 adults, and 2 Dogs Style
 
We're planning on heading out for the Caribbean, August 2014... My wife, my son, two Alaskan Malamutes, and a Hunter 33. Nuts or brave, here is our story:

Saw your blog ealier in the week! The picture of the cruise ship hot tub/swimming pool reminds me of why I like a smaller boat and the independance of cruising! Good luck with your adventure and hopefully I will be behind you in 6 months or so! Everyone is crazy here, so you will fit right in!

Tranquilo—Congratulations, I will be following your adventure and hopefully gain some tips! We have similar plans with our family, but with a much later departure date, June 2016.

I had a Malamute. Loved that dog. Perhaps the best dog I ever had, named Gypsy. She would go out on a snowy day and lay in the puddles to get extra cool. Summers in NY were too hot for her.

NO WAY I would take a malamute from a cold climate to hot and on a boat to boot. I dont think your Malamutes can take the trip. It will kill them.
