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.
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.
Lisbon is one of Europe’s oldest and most beautiful capitals. Enjoy local delicacy Pastel de Nata (custard cake), before exploring the wide boulevards lined by black and white mosaic sidewalks.
Birthplace to a host of renowned writers such as Oscar Wilde and W.B Yeats, the friendly Irish capital is literally steeped in culture. But it’s just as famous for ‘black nectar’ – Guinness.
America’s Venice has everything you need to float your boat. Beachcomb its placid shores, get up close to alligators on an airboat ride in the Everglades or tour its canals by boat.
King’s Wharf has a London feel, but with carefree Bahamas weather and soft pink beaches! You’ll find priceless Chinese porcelain salvaged from shipwrecks on display at the National Museum..
Many say the Azores are what’s left of the fabled island of Atlantis, swallowed up by the oceans 9,000 years ago. Perhaps they’re right; they’re some of the most beautiful islands anywhere.
Malaga is a spectacular legacy of Moorish culture. Take a trip along the coast to Granada to the exquisite Alhambra Palace. This is also the birthplace of Picasso.
Highlights to be discovered in this English port city include an interactive Titanic exhibition, award-winning parks and a number of music venues. It’s also the cruise capital of Europe.
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.
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.
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.
