8 Reasons to Embark On A Transatlantic Cruise With Plenty Of Sea Days

In a world where everyone is always on the go, a transatlantic cruise offers a respite, a chance to step back from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and embrace the rhythm of the ocean. While cruise holidays may not be for everyone, we love them, and especially cruises that sail across the seas on a transatlantic voyage. While some may shudder at the idea of days spent solely at sea, these extended voyages provide a unique opportunity for relaxation, introspection, and unforgettable experiences. Here are eight compelling reasons why you should consider setting sail on a transatlantic cruise with abundant sea days.

1. Unmatched Tranquility


Picture yourself on the deck of a luxurious cruise ship, surrounded by nothing but the vast expanse of the Atlantic Ocean. With no ports of call to rush to, you can fully immerse yourself in the tranquillity of the sea, far from the distractions of daily life. Get a book from the library onboard or get out your electronic book and take some time to wind down. Take a swim in the indoor or outdoor pools and relax in the jacuzzis. 

2. Indulgent Spa Days

You have ample time to pamper yourself at the onboard spa. Treat yourself to a massage, facial, or other rejuvenating treatments, and let the stresses of everyday life melt away. Or maybe get your hair or nails done.  You can even buy a day pass to areas called The Sanctuary or The Retreat where you can relax in an area with complimentary food too.

3. Amazing Food


Talking about food, one of the highlights of any cruise is the exquisite dining experience, and a transatlantic voyage is no exception. From gourmet cuisine to casual fare, you'll have the opportunity to indulge in a diverse array of culinary delights prepared by excellent chefs. From Asian food to Mexican, American steakhouse to Teppanyaki, cruise food can be diverse and varied and it can be a great time to try food you haven't experienced before. 

4. Enriching Activities

From educational lectures and language classes to cooking demonstrations and wine tastings, sea days are filled with enriching activities designed to engage and entertain passengers of all interests. I've been to talks from pilots and detectives to art and culture talks. I've also seen cookery demonstrations from Michelin-starred chef Marco Pierre White. In conclusion, there are some great enriching activities on board ships. 

5. Make Great Friendships


On a transatlantic cruise, you'll have the chance to forge new friendships with fellow passengers and crew members. Whether you're swapping stories over dinner or participating in onboard activities together, the shared experience of life at sea creates bonds that can last a lifetime, especially so on a transatlantic trip. I am still in touch with people I have been on transatlantic cruises with and we still chat online. 

7. A Chance To Stargaze 

Away from the glare of city lights, the night sky at sea is a canvas of stars. Whether you simply appreciate the beauty of stargazing on deck or you want to experience the Northern Lights, there are many opportunities to star gaze on a transatlantic trip. Some of the Cunard ships even have a planetarium on board.

8. Spectacular Sunrises and Sunset

There's something magical about watching the sun rise and set over the ocean. On a transatlantic cruise, you'll have front-row seats to these breathtaking displays of nature every single day. You may even see wildlife like birds, fish and even dolphins as you sail along the sea. We saw flying fish on our recent transatlantic cruise.

8. The Journey Itself

In today's fast-paced world, we're often so focused on reaching our destination that we forget to enjoy the journey. A transatlantic cruise with plenty of sea days is a reminder to slow down, savour the moment, and appreciate the beauty of the world around us. It also feels like a real adventure and is definitely a trip to remember. 

In conclusion, a transatlantic cruise with abundant sea days offers a unique opportunity to disconnect from the stresses of everyday life, reconnect with yourself and others, and create memories that will last a lifetime.
