Transatlantic cruises: Ask the experts

Q. I’ve always wanted to cross the Atlantic by ship. Do any
cruise lines offer Transatlantic sailings?

A. A number of ships travel from their summer cruising grounds in the Mediterranean to the Caribbean in the autumn, returning the following spring. These so-called “repositioning cruises” are ideal for those who enjoy pure sea time and simply being on a ship, rather than an itinerary that offers a different port each day. They also offer great value for money. Try these transatlantic cruises. You can also set sail across the Atlantic on a tall ship with Star Clippers.
