Frequently asked questions

Popular Transatlantic Cruising routes connect European ports such as Southampton, Lisbon, or Barcelona with American ports like New York, Miami, or Boston. While flying is more efficient, cruising sounds way more relaxing with the added bonus of a buffet breakfast. Yes, please.

The best times to enjoy a Transatlantic cruise are spring and fall when ships reposition between the Caribbean and Europe. During these months you can enjoy milder weather and smoother sailing conditions.

While children are always welcome, these cruises tend to have fewer activities targeted at younger travellers compared to other cruise types. If you’re kids are happy to go with the flow, read a good book and come along to events with you then by all means bring them along. If, however, they prefer to stay active and constantly on the go, then chat with our travel experts about cruises that may be better suited to your little ones.

Did you even go on a cruise if you didn’t go a little overboard at the buffet? Rest assured that meals are typically included in all cruise fares, with a range of dining options available. Beverage packages can be purchased separately. Chat with your cruising expert to find the package best suited to you.

The open ocean offers chances to see marine life such as dolphins and seabirds, especially from higher decks. We recommend bringing a pair of binoculars and letting your inner twitcher run wild.

Transatlantic cruises usually range from 6 to 15 days, depending on the ship's itinerary and speed.

Transatlantic cruising passengers can enjoy Broadway-style shows, live music, educational lectures, culinary workshops, and more. As there are less ports of call, cruise liners go all out to offer a jam-packed schedule to keep guests entertained throughout the trip.

We recommend packing for varying climates, including warm clothing for cooler days at sea and lighter attire for warmer port days. Don’t forget some bathers for the island ports, and a good book to read as you lay in bed and look out over the ocean.

Many cruises offer themed nights, such as 'captain's gala' or 'white night', so bringing appropriate attire is recommended. Check your cruises itinerary so you know exactly what events you need to pack for.

Most departure ports are in or near major cities, offering good flight, train, and road connectivity.
