Transatlantic cruise; the best and the worst of it

Jump to last reply

We really like to take Transatlantic cruises; Besides the obvious reason, that you can enjoy a luxury atmosphere without the huge expense, we think it gives us a unique opportunity to experience the 'sea' for a prolonged interval.
Every day is a 'sea' day, and you get an opportunity to meet and know folks, enjoy down time, reflect and learn, read and rest, etc, that you don't have when you have ports of call, excursions, etc. Perhaps even a rare opportunity for inner reflection--to get to know yourself.

We have done several, mostly on small ships--there is usually no entertainment, as such (perhaps a small musical combo for dinner dancing), but a well stocked library, games, videos, maps, etc. It takes about 2 days to get into the flow, establish a pattern for the day, and truly, truly relax.

How about you? feedback from others is appreciated. We are planning on taking the Nov. crossing from Lisbon to Barbados, if all goes well.
