Say it ain't so
He's not a CGC or anything else. He's a DOG. If he's housebroken I assume you mean he goes in the yard. In case you may have missed it, there are no yards attached to ships. Now, if you have a little life vest and about 200 yards of line, you can probably let him go in the ship's yard.

Dogs on board transAtlantic cruises:

dog lovers on board got together to talk about their dogs on board and their dogs at home. Cunard brings Champagne and petit fours.
One day, Cunard schedules a photo session for people with their pets. A photographer comes and takes photos of you and your pet with the complimentary QM2 coat on – very cute. You get the photo for free. You also get a key chain, Frisbee, food scoop, and some other promotional items.
A LOT of people have asked me where the pets go to the bathroom. They go on deck! They have a fairly generous area of the deck that they can use as a run and as a potty. The second they do their “business,” the Kennel Master is there to clean it up. Everything is VERY clean and sanitary.

True there is a kennel but if you are traveling Transatlantic over 2 weeks, much better to have your dog with you than boarded at home. Service dogs are allowed in rooms. No they dont eat in te dining room with passengers.

Better yet have a trusted pet sitter come in and stay with your pooch in their home with their stuff where they'll be comfortable and in their own surroundings.

CGC is a designation of the American Kennel Club - it stands for Canine Good Citizen - it requires that he have a stable temperment - allow a friendly stranger to approach - "stay" at a distance until released - walk calmly among strangers - and additional testing. Which is more than I can say for some children.
Yes he "goes" in a yard - not his pants.
I pick-up what he leaves immediately.
We recently stayed at a "pet friendly" hotel the Clarion in Ocean City MD that had a designated area for such activities - it was immaculate.

My dog's "own surroundings" include ME.

He is crate trained - quiet - and obedient.

Again - more than can be said for some offspring.

No worries - as posted by younglisa7

Well at least we have options. Maybe not on cruises but we can travel to pet friendly destinations

I love my dog but I would never subject her to a cruise ship nor would I board her in a kennel.

In fact, that I love her is the reason I would not do these things.

No there are not, and for good reason.

I'm sure that there are people who go on crossings who have a house in Europe and one in the states.

How about a cat? I would think a cat could be kept in a stateroom.
There are odor free litters out now, too, and we clean the litter as soon as he goes, so it is always fresh.

Cat boxes stink regardless of how clean they are kept. The smell of cat urine gets into the air and everything around it. I think most cat owners are used to it, so unaware of how bad the smell is.

I'm not allergic to cats and can be around them for short periods, but sleeping in a bed or even a room that had been occupied by a cat will trigger my asthma.

Oh, never thought of that. It's a good reason.

I have found a guide all about taking your loved furball with you!
I found it very interesting, and I will definitely be taking my pug on one!
