Looking for a Transatlantic Cruise?
A transatlantic cruise offers passengers a trip to some of the world´s most famous destinations. The original and most popular transatlantic cruise destination is still New York. Imagine viewing the Manhattan skyline in the distance from your cabin. You can also take a transatlantic cruise to the Caribbean, visiting the Canary Islands on the way.
Whichever transatlantic cruise you choose, highlights include: city tours of New York, taking in a Broadway show or visiting the Statue of Liberty, lazing away the hours on a sun-kissed Caribbean beach or exploring the volcanic landscapes of the Canary Islands. Choose your own itinerary, and you can combine a city tour with a relaxing few days in the destinations of your choice. Most transatlantic cruises from the UK depart from Southampton or Dover, and typically transport passengers to New York or Miami.
This type of cruise makes only a few, if any, ports of call and the focus of the trip is the lifestyle, entertainment and amenities on board. Most cruise liners offer special events and activities for transatlantic crossings, and top acts, chefs and celebrities are hired to ensure the guests enjoy top-notch entertainment on board. Art classes, computer classes and educational programmes are also provided, and guests have plenty of opportunities to interact with each other. This is the perfect cruise for passengers who want to relax and enjoy the on board facilities, without having numerous stops en route. The model transatlantic crossing is characterized by five consecutive days at sea, although some newer and longer versions of the itinerary offer stops in Bermuda, the Azores or the Canary islands. Some Caribbean islands or European cities may also be included near the beginning or the end of the cruise, but the ports are still just diversions from the main event, which is the Atlantic crossing.
