Transatlantic Cruises from the UK

Transatlantic cruises from the UK aren’t just Cunard cruises to New York, though these iconic sailings still deserve a place on your bucket list! You can also cruise to the Caribbean, Canada and South America from the UK, porting in some of the most iconic destinations on the planet.

The best time of year to set sail

You'll find that the majority of westbound transatlantic cruises from the UK depart in the autumn months - September, October and November. This is because a number of ships which are positioned in the Mediterranean during the summer season migrate over to the Caribbean for the winter. 

If you don't mind flying across the Atlantic to enjoy a one-way transatlantic crossing which concludes in the UK, the best time of year to do this would be springtime when ships migrate to Europe for the summer season. That said, it is quite possible to enjoy a transatlantic cruise in either direction at any time of year. Cunard has a regular transatlantic programme with return trips possible for those who prefer not to fly at all.
