transatlantic ruise

We are looking into a transatlantic cruise on RCL, (only cruise line we go on) sometime Nov. 2019. 

Anyone taken this type of cruise on any of the RCL ships and if so, from where to where, what ship and was it worth the time and money for 12-16 days?

 

Thanks for your time and in-put.

We have done a couple of transatlantic cruises. the last cruise was from Ft. Lauderdale to Southampton on the Caribbean Princess and hove one scheduled on the Pacific Princess from Rome to Ft. Lauderdale in Dec.

Is it worth it for the money? That is a question only you can decide. I have always thought the price we paid were worth it. We enjoy sea the sea days.

I did the San Juan to London on Adventure of The Seas and I did Rome to Florida om Celebrity Equinox (Celebrity is upper line of RCL) both were 14 nights and both were great cruises if you enjoy sea days. I extended my cruises with a a week in old San Juan before the cruise and 2 weeks in London after the cruise or 2 weeks in Rome before the cruise.

For me it was well worth it, I an retired and have nothing but time and the price was very good as it is re positioning cruises.

The major issue is do you like sea days enough to have 4 or 5 of them in a row ?

Which December? This December 2018? If so, so will we. We get on in Venice on Nov. 23rd. If you get a chance please give us a shout. Cabin 7114. Don't get the idea that we are upper crust types, first full suite ever. Sister-in-Law is joining us was why we got the big cabin.

But she is scared of the long consecutive days on the ocean, so is getting off in Rome, couldn't get her to change her mind even though she paid all the way to Florida. This will be our number eight Trans-Atlantic, four west and four east. Never had unpleasant seas, since they go out of their way on most cruise lines to avoid snotty weather and high seas. Maybe one might consider our first Atlantic as an exception with regard to "rough" since we left New York for the Mediterranean and had to divert south, we had the dance floor to ourselves for the first couple of days, 1997 in early April.

As far as cost, we find a lot of sea days are not all that desirable for most cruisers, so the price is adjusted downward accordingly. We love sea days. We find the older you get the more you like them.

Are these cruises cheaper and by how much, roughly?

Depends on the ship and the ports. A few years ago I got a 14 night Rome to Florida on Celebrity for $ 900.00 USD each for a balcony cabin. A web site that I use sometimes for booking has a section on re-positioning cruises.

Absolutely! We booked a guaranteed balcony and as of yet been assigned a cabin. Look forward to meeting up with you onboard. quote=Kennicott]

I have done transatlantic cruises in both directions.

I prefer the west bound trips in the fall/winter.

You get 5-6, 25 hour days in a row because of your slow westward movement!

Really great if you enjoy relaxation, reading and meeting people.

Happy Turkey Day everyone. We be in Venice then, wonder if they have turkeys there?

Who cares ... you'll be in Venice and that will something to give thanks for without any turkey!Happy

Usually very good rates coming from the med. Barcelona is an easy port to catch it.
