Default TransAtlantic Curise

My hubby and I have only cruised once....to Alaska on Princess Diamond. Absolutely loved it. We are thinking of taking a TransAtlantic Cruise in 2005. What is the best time for this cruise, cruiseline, etc. We are perplexed ......Appreciate any and all thoughts.

oooh transatlantic is great. are you doing NY-Southampton on the QM2. You will love it. You can't say that one month is better than the other. The north atlantic is too unpredicatable. We did a september crossing and had swells of 10-20m so take some dramamine to knock out the sea sickness and you'll have a lovely time.

What do you mean this isn't how they eat onboard?

I'm booked on the Sea Princess for 2005! Southampton to New York, via Ireland, Faroe Isl., Iceland, Greenland, St. John's, 14 days, Sept. 10-24th.

All the major cruise lines do some sort of Transatlantic/Repositioning cruises in the Fall. Some have a few ports, and maybe 5 or 6 sea days, they range in length from 10 to 15 days.

Cunard still has the England to New York that is strictly Transatlantic, no ports. Weather in Sept./Oct. can be a factor no way to control it. Could be great or ugly or a little of both!

Carnival even has a crossing in October next year from Rome to Florida, I think it is a cruise mates group cruise.

Check all the major lines, Sept./Oct./Nov. schedules or Spring (April May) when they take the ships over for the Med./Europe season. Spring weather is a little more predictable than Sept./Oct.!
