Imagine standing on the deck looking out across the water at the Statue of Liberty, with the well-known skyline of Manhattan behind it. You could be setting sail or docking to the sound of the ships playing on deck while you enjoy these magnificent views. What a fantastic way to start or end a transatlantic crossing. If you wanted to, you could even visit the original Statue of Liberty in Paris at the other end of your cruise – maybe not as large a statue, but still it's part of a view that's worth a look.
Transatlantic cruising isn 't quite the same as the bustle of island hopping you get during a Caribbean or Mediterranean cruise. Instead, you can spend your days on the ocean enjoying the magnificent peace of the ocean and becoming fully acquainted with your surroundings on board ship. It is a chance to immerse yourself in the luxury that is the epitome of a transatlantic cruise crossing, and truly relax without the stresses and strains of dry land.
Actually, in reality, transatlantic cruising offers just a bit more than that , as many cruise lines also offer you the chance to sail transatlantic between the UK, America and the Caribbean, taking in a little of Europe or the Caribbean along the way so you do not just get the magnificent seascapes of the Atlantic Ocean but a little of the land at either end as part of your experience as well.
Whilst on board ship, there are many things to enjoy as well as the vast ocean and sunny days. From the spa to the pool, the games area to the casino, the cinema to ballroom there is something for everyone of every age and many people come away from a cruise saying they did not manage to do everything. On board you will also find shops, bars and of course restaurants of various styles. Most cruise ships will have a program that you can look through to see what the day events will be and you can easily choose what you want to participate in.
It's all a matter of personal taste, and it's a matter of personal taste.
It's all about personal taste, and it's left entirely up to you if you choose to lounge all afternoon by the pool and drink long drinks or take afternoon tea with your fellow passengers, either way the ambiance of the ship is bound to delight you. Cocktails in the evening and fine dining go to the round off what for many people is a very full but relaxing day in a world that is as timeless as it gets these days.
