Experience the many delights of transatlantic cruises, also known as “Atlantic crossings.” With today’s exceptional cruise deals and value added amenities, everyone can take advantage of this memorable travel opportunity. Some are called “repositioning” voyages and are scheduled in the spring and fall when cruise ships move between seasons in Europe and the Caribbean.
Imagine sailing to some of the places you have always wanted to explore. On a transatlantic cruise you may get to visit a few of them on one memorable vacation. Imagine, no need for flights and you only have to pack once – this alone is a huge travel perk! Highlighting this exciting adventure will be fascinating shore excursions, enriching expert lectures on your destinations, captivating entertainment and the opportunity to savor regional cuisine all in the company of like-minded cruisers.
Onboard everything offered is for your pleasure and to enhance the experience. Discover the precious jewel of free time as you cross the Atlantic by cruise ship and enjoy perks such as fine dining, spacious accommodations and new-found friends. Leisurely days at sea are all about you and every moment is yours to do with exactly as you wish. Unhurried days provide time to spoil yourself; head to the onboard spa for specially designed treatments that will melt your cares away. Get that hot stone massage you haven’t had time for or try a yoga class at the state-of-the-art fitness center.
You will be pampered throughout your journey. Enjoy all of the comforts, luxuries and amenities. Dine on gourmet cuisine, sip fine wine and enjoy high-end entertainment as you decompress on this relaxing escape. Spend your days strolling the decks, take a cooking or dance class, catch up on your reading, have your favorite libation over great conversation at a bevy of chic bars and swanky lounges or play your favorite games at the casino.
Enjoy an evening “out on the town” without having to find a parking space. Just steps from your door, is a seemingly endless array of fantastic entertainment options to suit all tastes. Varying by ship, enjoy lavish Broadway-style productions, thrilling Vegas-like shows, high-flying aerial and acrobatic extravaganzas, concerts, comedians and more. Dance the night away at parties, in clubs or at the disco. Show off vocal skills at karaoke or watch a movie under the stars.
Transatlantic and repositioning cruises depart from many gorgeous ports such as Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, New York, Galveston, Montreal, San Juan, Rio de Janeiro, Southampton, Rome, Copenhagen, Marseille, Barcelona and Lisbon, among others. Why not extend your adventure and combine your cruise with a pre- and/or post-cruise stay in an exciting city? Another option is to reserve the “transatlantic segment” of a world cruise. Along the way, tour some of the most exotic places in the world.
Cobh, Le Havre, Cherbourg and Zeebrugge are just a sample of stops along the way on various itineraries. Additional destinations may include vibrant Caribbean Islands, postcard lovely New England and breathtaking Scandinavia. You may opt to extend your holiday and take a back-to-back or “roundtrip” transatlantic cruise. If you live near any of the departure ports, you may not need any air travel at all.
Whether you simply love to cruise, are looking for a special vacation or want to travel between continents without flying, a transatlantic or repositioning cruise is the perfect choice and may be the most relaxing time you have ever been indulged with. Throughout your voyage, your days will be filled with laughter, new friends, great music, entertainment, food, and unique experiences. Priceless moments to be treasured and shared await you.
