Our Transatlantic Selection...
"Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 is the most iconic of all the ocean liners, making her way back and forth across the pond throughout the year "
A cruise across the mighty Atlantic Ocean is an experience you’ll find on many people’s bucket lists. Transatlantic voyages date back to when steam liners were the only means of crossing from Great Britain to the Americas. Of course, Transatlantic crossings are much more glamorous these days, though they still evoke a certain nostalgia for a bygone era.
- Make the most of sailing in or out of New York with a few extra nights in the city
- Totally unwind with blissfully uninterrupted days at sea
- Fully immerse yourself in ship life and all the facilities on offer – cruise lines often put on special events or invite guest speakers
A highlight is arriving into New York, passing the Statue of Liberty and watching the impressive skyline grow larger. You can choose to spend a few extra days in Manhattan. Go to the Top of the Rock for panoramic views of the cityscape, walk across Brooklyn Bridge as the sun sets or soak up the buzz of Times Square. New York is a year-round city, meaning there is no bad time to visit.
There is also the shopping. In the know shopaholics may opt for an eastbound voyage out of New York, avoiding any baggage weight restrictions imposed by the airlines.
You can also choose to sail onto Florida, the Caribbean or South America. Some journeys will take you north to New England or Canada. Others stop en-route in Madeira or the Azores.
