The quintessential cruise itinerary. Transatlantic cruises have remained popular since the original grand steam liners of the 19th century and the modern cruise liners still evoke the romance and adventure of this era.
Many transatlantic cruises take the opportunity to visit the lovely island groups during the crossing. The Canary Islands are a popular destination as are the Portuguese Azores and Madeira. Other crossings may visit Caribbean islands or even Iceland and Greenland.
Crossings can be Westbound (to the Americas) or Eastbound (to Europe) and can begin or end in Canada, New York, Florida, the Mediterranean, UK or even here in Ireland.
