Transatlantic Cruises

A popular misconception with Transatlantic voyages is that the ship makes no stops, this is in fact un-true. A classic Transatlantic voyage will take you from Southampton to New York or vice-versa in between 6 and 8 nights and will have no stops, however a longer cruise will in fact see you stop at some stunning locations. These could be in the Caribbean, Europe, Bahamas or even the Portuguese Azores. The type of Transatlantic cruise to choose depends simply on what you want to do and where exactly you want to go.

Transatlantic Ports

St. Helena, Ascension Island

Transatlantic Ports

Ponta Delgada

Ponta Delgada is situated in the Portuguese Azores and is the most popular port of call for cruise ships in this region. It is said that Ponta Delgada is the most beautiful island in the Azores and there are some natural and stunning sights for you to see here, the most popular being Sete Citadades. Here you will witness a truly jaw dropping sight, Sete Citadades is in fact a 15 square mile extinct volcanic crater where two totally separate lakes have formed, the impressive fact is that one lake is a deep inky blue and the other a bright green. This will definitely be a photo opportunity not to miss. You can also bathe in the sulphur springs and volcanic streams, your body will feel completely revitalised as the waters are full of natural goodness.

Nassau

Nassau is the most popular port of call in the Bahamas and is bursting with crystal blue oceans and lagoons, straw markets and delicious locally caught seafood. Nassau really is the picture perfect location for those looking for a tropical adventure and even the chance to swim with wild dolphins. If you are a lover of seafood then you must try some local cuisine including the popular rock Lobster and locally caught Conch. Another popular day trip here is a short boat ride across to Paradise Island, a fantastic resort where you can try your luck in the casino and even admire the shark pool.

Casablanca

Casablanca can be found on the western coast of Morocco gently sitting on the Atlantic Ocean. Aside from being a rather popular film back in 1942 it is also a very nice port of call on your cruise itinerary. The most popular sight to see in this year round warm North African country is the Hassan II Mosque. The Mosque is the largest in North Africa and has indoor space for 25,000 worshippers along with courtyard space for a further 80,000, as I am sure you can imagine this Mosque is simply stunning. It is said it cost an estimated $800 million to build and was fully completed in 1993. Once you have admired this amazing building why not take some time out to people watch in the city's largest public park, Parc de la Ligue Arabe.

Madeira

Madeira is a popular cruise port for both Transatlantic crossings and Canary Island itineraries. Funchal is your port of call and it certainly does not take long before you realise why the island is known as the Garden Island. The landscape is simply a wash with colour a sub-tropical plants. Madeira is easily explored on foot and it is probably the best way to see the island. There are popular markets, local craft shops, some amazing restaurants and a rather impressive coast line all to be explored. A visit to the Botanical Gardens is also worth fitting in during your time here where you can find some glorious plants and flowers. Please note that a lot of the local shops, bars and restaurants close on Sundays like many across Italy and Spain. If you are willing to venture further inland and through the cobbled streets however you will find some craft stores that are open.

New York

Without a doubt New York City is one of the most anticipated ports of call on any USA cruise voyage. The Big Apple as it's dubbed is a captivating city that can quite literally blow your mind. Whilst here the most obvious sights to see include the Empire State building, Statue of Liberty and Ground Zero. Although each is separate the city's subway system and never ending stream of yellow cabs can whisk you off effortlessly from one to the next. Don't forget to hit the shops whilst you are here, stores like Macy's can offer designer clothes, perfumes and other goodies at a fraction of the price you would pay in the UK. Coney Island is also a lovely place to visit and sits in southern Brooklyn. Here you will find an amazing amusement park along with all the typical seaside features you may well see back home, not necessarily the fish and chips though. Whatever you decide to do in New York you are guaranteed to have the time of your life.
