Transatlantic cruises follow the classic cruise routes between North America and Europe. Most transatlantic cruises are scheduled during the northern hemisphere spring and autumn. This is when cruise lines are repositioning their cruise liners between ports at the start and end of cruise seasons.

Because transatlantic cruises start and end in different ports, it is often easy to find well priced transatlantic cruises if passengers must make their way home from a different port than they set sail from. Some transatlantic cruises include airfare each way as a package.


  • Visit two very unique continents in one cruise
  • Value: Transatlantic cruises are often offered as a repositioning cruise so the cost can be lower than other cruises of the same duration.
  • Extend your cruise holiday with an onshore vacation at your start and end port.
  • Sail classic cruise routes on board some of the world’s best loved cruise ships
