Has anyone been on a transatlantic cruise? What can we expect for entertainment.

Transatlantic cruises normally have lots of extra entertainment during the day, very relaxing. They should have extra movies and lectures, etc. All depends on whcih ship or line you are on. Evenings is about the same as on any cruise. Some great shows, some very boring. The English ships tend to be much more conservative.

Depending on your tastes - the QE2 is a great transatlantic liner. Its different than a cruise & the luxury of time is on your side. if you need to relax its perfect & yet there is enough to do onboard to keep you busy & interested.

There is the standard entertainment but traditions like tea & cocktails are well attended. You can get to the gym & sauna & not feel rushed - do a movie, painting class the heritage tour(QE2 history along with other liners) thecasino - lectures & concerts - long lunches & dinners if you want . I also believe there is a passenger oboard that tends to of been well travelled & educated - its all very interesting & fun.

Try it before she leaves the states.

I just got back from the May 10 Crossing on the QE2. On the QE2, there was a wide variety of entertainment including (almost) first-run movies, broadway-style shows, ballroom dancing (same-sex couples not permitted, however (frown)), karaoke, and lectures.

I suppose it will depend on what kind of entertainment you are looking for and on which ship you travel. Remember is is simply several days at sea with noting to do except what you choose to do.
