About Transatlantic Cruises

When choosing the perfect time of year for a transatlantic cruise, it's important to remember that temperatures vary between countries. For example, New York is warmest in the local summertime from June to September, when average daily temperatures are around 75ºF. Should you be travelling from the US to the UK, you will no doubt want to arrive during the summer months, when the British south coast enjoys its best weather from July to August.

You can be guaranteed good weather all year round in Florida, although August to October can be rainy. It's also best to avoid the rainy months in the Caribbean. The Mediterranean enjoys warm weather for much of the year, with the best occurring in the summer months from May to September.

For many travelers, the most popular months to visit New York, the UK, Northern Europe, Spain and Miami are during summer from June to August. The most popular time to visit the Caribbean and South America is from January to May, when those from the northern hemisphere flock aboard cruises in their droves to seek winter sun.

Taking cruises outside of peak travel times will always be a cheaper option, especially towards the end of the season when re-positioning cruises can save you money.

Transatlantic cruises stop off at a variety of ports, with some of the main ones include New York, Miami, Rio de Janeiro, the Canary Islands, the Azores, and Barcelona.

New York City has a never-ending itinerary of things to do with big attractions such as Central Park, Times Square, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Statue of Liberty and of course, catching a show on Broadway. Some transatlantic cruises cater to those who want to end their trip with a visit to Disney World, and one such cruise is Disney Magic from the Disney Cruise Line.

While in Florida it's also worth checking out many attractions during a shore excursion, including Universal Studios, the Kennedy Space Center, the Everglades and the beautiful Key West Islands to the south of the panhandle. Those stopping in Spain or the Canary Islands can enjoy many shore excursions to historic sites, or a spot of mountain walking. A trip to Barcelona isn't complete without a visit to the bustling Las Ramblas or taking in the glorious piece of architecture which is the still unfinished Sagrada Familia.

Most cruises which take in Brazil stop at Rio de Janiero, the vibrant heartbeat of this huge South American country. Highlights include the very famous Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, or indeed the Rio Carnival, which takes place annually before Lent.

Many cruise lines offer transatlantic cruise options including Cunard, who operate a classic New York to Southampton, England route taking eight days. Princess Cruises offer routes which travel from New York to the UK and even Iceland. The Holland-America Line incorporates stops in Northern Europe, the Netherlands and the US. The Seabourn Quest from Seabourn travels from Dover, England to the Scottish Isles, Iceland, Greenland and Canada.

The Queen Mary 2 from Cunard Line is a popular luxury cruise ship which boasts many special features. It is home to the Royal Court Theater, as well as the largest library and dancefloor on the sea and the only planetarium. This ship is popular with those who like to travel in elegance and those looking for a once in a lifetime trip. The Disney Magic ship from Disney Cruise Lines travels from Miami to Lisbon, Ibiza, and Barcelona.
