What is a Transatlantic Cruise?
Cruisers Guide to a Transatlantic Cruise
Want to know more about transatlantic cruises? You’ve come to the right place! A transatlantic cruise is essentially a crossing through the Atlantic Ocean. That is why sometimes you may hear people refer to a transatlantic cruise as an Atlantic crossing.
Transatlantic cruises are also commonly referred to as a repositioning cruise. This is because cruise ships will cross the Atlantic, usually in the fall and spring, and reposition in new ports for the cruising season. For instance, a particular cruise ship may be cruising to Europe for a season but reposition back to take advantage of the Caribbean season.
What is really nice about a transatlantic/repositioning cruises is that the prices are usually really low. It is one of the best ways to get a deal on a cruise; however, you will not be able to take advantage of round trip flight savings because you will be flying into one port city and flying out of another. Even with the possibility of an added cost to the airfare the savings you get on the repositioning cruise is usually a better deal. And, for those with frequent flyers miles, this really is a steal of a deal.
Another thing to consider when taking a transatlantic cruise is the time. It usually takes anywhere between six to eight days to partake in a transatlantic cruise. Also, if stopping at as many ports as possible on your cruise is a must, a transatlantic cruise might not be the cruise for you. A transatlantic cruise is a perfect fit for those who truly do enjoy the experience on the cruise ship itself. Don’t get me wrong, a transatlantic cruise will
have port stops but they aren’t as abundant as a traditional cruise.
