We would love to sail the atlantic sometime next year (after spring).
How do we go about finding repositioning cruises?
If none are available or convienent then we will look into a USA to Europe cruise or vice versa.
Which brings another question:
Which is better...fly to Europe and cruise home?
Or the other way around?
Transportation from WA is not a concern.
Peace through superior firepower.
Definitely fly to Europe and cruise home. You gain an hour an day on six of the days versus losing an hour a day on the Spring trips over to Europe. In addition, the first week of a fall transatlantic home is port intensive followed by relaxing sea days. The spring transatlantic has the sea days followed by the port days; you come home just as tired as when you left. Of course, the best of all possible worlds is taking the spring transatlantic to Europe followed by five months touring Europe followed by a transatlantic home.
For other repositioning cruises, do you mean Florida to New York or Florida to Los Angeles through the Canal. For the former, they will be a partial Caribbean cruise as they must stop in Aruba or South America. Just check your favorite cruise lines website for schedule or look in Cruise Travel Magazine.
