Cruise to Europe. Don’t start your vacation with jet lag.
The only way I travel to and from Europe is on a transatlantic crossing. I’ve done it twelve times in the last seven years. Last week, I booked my next transatlantic duo, for later this year. And yes, most times, I pay for my transatlantic cruise, just like everyone else. Which is why, to me, price matters.
If you are considering a trip to Europe in the spring (who can resist April in Paris?), you might want to forget the airlines and head out on an Atlantic Ocean adventure instead. The price of a transatlantic crossing is at an incredible low. Not only can you select anywhere from a seven to eighteen-day cruise, you also arrive into Europe well-fed, well rested and without jetlag.
If there was any way I could leave this spring, I’d make two transatlantic crossings this year…the prices are that good. But my daughter’s birthday is mid-May and she’s requested that I am home. Instead, I’ll share what I’ve found for spring crossings and maybe it’ll get you on your first or fifteenth voyage to the Old World.
These aren’t the ONLY deals out there…just the best values that I could find. These are all inside category, as that can be a good indicator of price range in all categories. Not always, but most times.
