Choose a cruise-only vacation if you prefer staying on-board your ship and enjoying on-board pleasures, or select a land-and-sea holiday package that includes port accommodation, sightseeing and food facilities with overnight stays in fascinating ports, such as vibrant Copenhagen, artistically inclined Lisbon, historic St. Petersburg and romantic Venice.
Most top Translantic cruise operators start journey in Fort Lauderdale, or Tampa, if not New York or Boston, so confirm with your chosen cruise organizer, which will be your starting port of travel and what are the cruise highlights to ensure you get your money’s worth out of a world-class cruise experience.
For example, some cruise operators may tie up with local tourism authorities and enable you to stand on top of the Rock of Gibraltar for an additional fee while others may specialize in guided walking or cycle tours of Canary Islands as well as cuisine tasting tours that reveal Greek and Roman influences in the islanders’ food.
So, choose a cruise itinerary that suits you: walk the cobbled streets and cafes of Europe, shop in upmarket boutiques or trace the footsteps of ancient explorers when visiting museums, art galleries and scenic castles. Visit iconic churches in Ireland and France if you ever tire of visiting charming villages and picturesque countryside of these countries or spend a memorable evening at the Moulin Rouge, savouring high society entertainment. Eat crepes from a street vendor when in France and when in Portugal, which also figures on the best Translantic cruise itinerary, visit lots of historic forts, quaint cafes, local bazaars, hillside hiking and fantastic regional curries and desserts that make you re-think returning home.
