This cruise is definitely for those who love their sea days, what’s more is they can often be the cheapest given ports are few so taxes and other charges are less.
There are two main types of Atlantic crossing cruises. The first, which can be described as a regular itinerary which most often operates between New York (USA) and Southampton (UK) and then the second, a repositioning cruise that may operate to (or from) any US east coast port and any destination in Europe.
Rule of thumb, a scheduled departure will take around six to eight days to complete a journey whereby a reposition cruise can of course take two or so weeks depending on the start and finish ports. Popular start and finish ports are between Miami and Barcelona for example, and whereby ports visits have been allowed for stopping at the likes of Ponta Delgada, Azores, Madeira (Funchal) or Lisbon, Portugal and Malaga, Spain.
Regular cruise itineraries are operated by Cunard Line, in particular by Queen Mary 2. Repositioning cruises are operated by an array of cruise lines, including Princess Cruises, Crystal Cruises, Disney Cruises, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines and Celebrity Cruises.
