Transatlantic Cruises

The majesty, the allure, the history - a transatlantic cruise is one of the world's great cruise routes. The journey departs from North America, crosses the Atlantic Ocean before docking in a stunning European destination. It's time to explore two great continents.

Cross the Atlantic Sea

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

Transatlantic Cruise Itineraries

Crossing the Atlantic Sea, transatlantic cruises start and end in different ports on different continents. Classic transatlantic cruise routes travel between New York and Southampton; Barcelona and Fort Lauderdale; Miami and Lisbon and more.

Some cruises across the Atlantic Ocean stop at ports along the way, from an exploration of the Caribbean or Mediterranean to the wonderlands of Iceland and Alaska. Other transatlantic cruise routes are all about life at sea. If you love the onboard experience, take a cruise which spends all days at sea, you can have an onshore holiday at each port to make the most of your cruise holiday.
