Crossing the Atlantic is one of the world’s greatest oceanic journeys, and our cruises ensure you see it all – from the deep blue of the Atlantic to the vibrant British Virgin Islands, the Azores, the Canaries and shores of Southern Europe.
The Transatlantic Cruise Experience
Celebrity Cruises® will take you from the east coast of the United States to the west coast of Mediterranean Europe, calling at island enclaves along the way. Choose whether to start your Transatlantic Cruise moving westbound or eastbound – either way, the modern luxury of your Celebrity cruise ship ensures you are as relaxed or active as you want to be.
As you cruise through the cobalt waters of the Atlantic, indulge in a relaxing spa treatment or just lie back on deck and savour the serene atmosphere. When you stop at the Portuguese-owned Azores Islands and the Spanish Canary Islands off the coast of North Africa, disembark to discover this area of intriguing cultural and culinary heritage.
A stop at the Canary Island of Tenerife will show you a side of this popular island that you may not have known existed. Tropical forest walks, hiking up volcanic hills, vertical cliff walls, snorkelling and black sand beaches – Tenerife offers them all.
The similarly impressive Azores islands exude a calm ambience that you will feel from the moment you step on shore. Explore the town of Ponta Delgada – once a tiny fishing village, today it is a town that offers incredible cuisine and delicious sugar beet, its main export.
The Golden Beaches of Iberia
You will call at two major Iberian ports on your Transatlantic Cruise. At the Spanish city of Malaga, you can bypass the beaches and head for the old town, where tiny cafés and shops are tucked away in narrow streets full of Andalusian charm.
In Lisbon, capital of neighbouring Portugal, you will find a city with sweeping low streets, soaring hills up which Victorian trams trundle, and incredible views from the hill on which the Castelo de San Jorge sits.
Your Transatlantic Cruise
Throughout your journey, your Celebrity cruise ship will surpass all your expectations with its effortless luxury. Relax, rejuvenate and enjoy the calm as you travel across the Atlantic, stopping at all the essential ports of call along the way.
Pick sightseeing in the picturesque surroundings of Amsterdam’s waterways and take in points of historic interest and beauty along the way, including the Royal Palace and 15th century Weepers’ Tower. Alternatively get in touch with mother nature on a short tour of the lowlands and windmills of Holland, complete with landmarks that you will not find anywhere else in the world.
