161. Simply as a means of transportation to get

from one side of the Atlantic to the other. After

all a seven night voyage on a luxury ship in a

comfortable ensuite stateroom on full board with

waiter service can sometimes be the same cost

of an economy flight and a fraction of the cost of

business or first class flights.

2. To enjoy the journey in itself as a way to relax

perhaps without the interruptions of ports of call

and / or to escape the distractions of daily life.

3. As part of a greater holiday experience in

North America instead of flying - combining a

cruise with a more traditional land based stay. For

this reason Transatlantic Crossings are ideal for

people who like their land based holidays but want

to try out the cruise experience.



Travel to the United States Of America in Style. For five

days of any crossing - Each day at sea is 25 hours long and

so you will arrive refreshed in tune with local time ready to

step of your ship after breakfast and enjoy a full day. That

is without the jet lag - wanting to go to sleep five hours

before everyone else and waking up in the early hours of

the morning.


Enhance your holiday or travel experience and journey

home from the USA with the knowledge that you have not

got to go through long security queues at the airport and

have the patience to endure a relatively cramped flight

overnight back to the UK. Why subject yourself to all of this

aggravation when you can turn this overnight flight home

into the most comfortable and relaxing journey home

possible? Also the potential to shop and buy things that

you would not normally buy because of the flight home is

irresistible. No restrictive airline luggage weight allowances

and much less chance of breakages if your purchases are

not being thrown into the hold of an aircraft or squeezed

into the overhead storage lockers.


If you want a regular cruise with ports of call or badly suffer

from the effects of motion - then these cruises are probably

not for you. These cruises are ideal for those of you who are

well travelled, have cruised lots of times before or are looking

for something different. They are also perfect for people who

lead busy lives in the work or home environment and want to

totally relax without distraction and let someone else do all

the work. For these reasons you tend to meet a very different

type of passenger on a Transatlantic crossing than on a

regular cruise with ports of call


Cynical people would say: Eat, Sleep & Drink - perfect!!!

But there is so much more too:

- Switch off from the outside world ; put the mobile

down and shut the laptop!!!

- Have a wallow in the Thermal pool or detox in

the Sauna.

- Try your luck at bingo or learn how to play Poker.

- Watch a feature film or attend a lecture by a

guest speaker.

- Join a RADA acting class or pop in to see a matinee

theatre performance.

- Compete in a golf simulator competition or learn

more about computers.

- Join the pub trivia quiz or learn about mixing martinis.

- Make friends with Bill W or Dorothy.

- Work out in the gym or learn some dance steps.

- Take a brisk walk on deck or sunbathe in the solarium

- Check out the library or peruse fine works of art.

- Relax in a hot tub or have a splash in the pool.

- People watch with a Coffee or plan your

evening attire.



A transatlantic voyage takes you back to the golden era of ocean liners before jet travel.

They have rather romantic connotations of casting off from the daily grind of the UK on a wonderful adventure.
