If you are looking for the ultimate escape with complete relaxation, then a Transatlantic Cruise should be at the top of your list for one of the most stress free ways to unwind and kick back. Cruising the Atlantic is so much more of an experience than just gazing at the, albeit beautiful, endless rise and fall of the huge swell, that is our mighty ocean. With the myriad of exciting activities and entertainments on board, coupled with the outstanding cuisine and sumptuous accommodation, you hardly need even notice the outside world! However when you do, a whole host of treats lay in store for you.
Start your cruise conveniently in either the UK or one of the magical Mediterranean ports of either Italy, Spain, France or even Madeira and enjoy their iconic hidden gems. You will then spend six nights aboard a Transatlantic cruise, really doing as little or as much as you please. This sophisticated, relaxed, sociable method of crossing the Pond will enable new friendships to blossom whilst enjoying black tie gala dinners and some serious pampering. With very few ports of call, and after a week of total relaxation you will disembark from your Transatlantic cruise, refreshed and ready to hit the streets of either pulsating New York, fabulous Florida or the charismatic Caribbean.
As the most refined, civilised way to cross the Atlantic, a transatlantic cruise can be either simply one way with a flight to either meet it or return from it, or for a jet-lag free option, choose the return journey for 14 nights of sheer pleasure. The most popular transatlantic crossing is a cruise to NewYork. You can also choose to extend your stay with a cruise and stay holiday with one of the great cruise and stay deals on offer, combining your cruise with an exploration tour of the USA. As well as the regular transatlantic crossing if you time it right you could jump on a relocation cruise.
Cruises from Southampton to New York are considered to be the original Transatlantic cruises, however, crossings now also include the exciting destinations of Miami and Rio de Janeiro.
