A sea cruise is a fantastically different kind of holiday, taking in the best aspects of the 'all inclusive' model and tying it together with the ability to visit different places and have a wide range of experiences. It also provides the perfect 'get away from it all' situation whilst allowing for the opportunity to meet new people and make new friends. Plus of course you only have to unpack once, no matter how many places you visit!
Modern cruise liners are built to the highest specifications in order to provide the discerning holiday maker with the best top quality experience available. Attentive crews are on hand at all times to be of service and the wide range of entertainment provided is sure to mean that there really is something for everybody.
A Transatlantic Cruise is a very different thing from a river cruise, which usually makes at least one stop each day and sometimes more. A crossing of the ocean will take between six and eight nights without a stopover when travelling between Southampton and New York. Of course Transatlantic voyages can also include stops at some amazing destinations, whether it be in the Caribbean, Bahamas or Azores for some of the best beach destinations on the planet.
Basically, cruising the Atlantic is a wonderful way to enjoy the best that a modern cruise ship can offer. Spending the best part of a week on board without stops means you have plenty of time to partake of all the facilities; from fine dining, to sports activities and beyond. Or of course you can just lie back on deck and watch the world go by, experiencing the amazing feeling of spending days at sea in a luxury environment.

Modern ocean liners are ships that hold up to over five thousand people, including crew, and the accommodation on cruise ships usually comes in four types. These include inside cabins with no window, which are the cheapest options, and then ocean view rooms with windows that don’t open. Next come rooms with a balcony, much like a land based hotel room with a terrace, and finally the most expensive tier are the suites, which will have separate sitting rooms and bedrooms; the best have their own butlers too!
Prices on the cheaper tiers can vary depending on where on the ship they are located and whether or not the view is blocked by a lifeboat. This is not common newer ships but can often be the case on some of the older cruise liners. On all Transatlantic cruises, as with most holidays these days, great deals can be found by doing a little research and digging around on the internet.
