Centuries ago, settlers to the new world would use their life savings to attain a transatlantic voyage on heavily crowded ships and under great strife. Thank goodness in present times taking a transatlantic cruise means fun activities, comfortable quarters and affordable travel deals! Finding a cruise and tour of wonderful European vacation destinations has never been easier; here is some helpful information on what to expect on a transatlantic cruise to Europe.

Transatlantic Cruises from Ft. Lauderdale
The majority of transatlantic cruises headed to European destinations from the USA depart from one of the eleven cruise terminals at Port Everglades just outside of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. If you booked your cruise to Europe through a tour operator, transportation will generally be provided from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport to your designated Port Everglades terminal and can take between 45 minutes to an hour (including baggage loading and unloading). Upon arrival at Port Everglades, be prepared to present a picture ID and travel documents to be allowed entry at the port entrance security check-point.

Cruise Ship Boarding
Once you arrive at your cruise ship's terminal, your baggage and person will be subject to security checkpoints reminiscent of current airport security protocol. It is important to wear comfortable shoes for this part of your journey as sometimes long lines are present as thousands prepare to board ships and need to pass the security and travel checkpoints within a given timeframe. Once on board your vessel, you will be greeted by cruise staff, escorted to your room, and given daily event and dining schedules. Exploring the vast cruise ship is an adventure on its own and it is fun to meet other guest from all over the states who may be continuing on to a European escorted tour with you.

While Onboard
Newer cruise ships feature elegant dining rooms, lounges, theaters, and even casinos on board. Generally, there will be at least one elegant dinner when the ship captain joins ship guests and formal attire is required. There are daily activities and fun events to attend at all hours of the day, and the nights are full of dancing, floor shows, live music and theatrical performances. Remember to make your way to the main deck at least one night, as nothing is as exquisite as the stars at night reflected off the Atlantic Ocean.

Caribbean Ports of Call
The best thing about departing from Florida is the cruise tour of the Caribbean before you reach your European destinations! Depending on how many ports of call your cruise tour visits on the voyage, a European transatlantic and Caribbean cruise can take from one week to several weeks. Many of the cruise ships that depart from Florida make numerous stops at the various islands of the Caribbean. Cruise ports of call may include Puerto Rico, San Juan, Netherlands Antilles, and Antigua and Barbuda. The waters are crystal clear, the beaches shimmer with white sands, and Islands provide a diverse culture to explore, filling your vacation days with the sights and taste of tropical island paradises.

Once you cross the Atlantic there are numerous European Islands (such as Portugal's Madeira) that are beautiful to discover. If you want to continue your trip after you have crossed the Atlantic, there are escorted European vacation packages available to explore Europe. A tour of Italy is a favorite destination after a transatlantic cruise.


If you wish to take advantage of affordable travel deals, it is best to book your cruise and European vacation through a tour operator from the beginning. A tour operator can take the stress out of planning, aid you with customs and security checkpoints, and find the best affordable travel deals on the market.
