Best transatlantic cruises for 2023, plus tips and what to expect

Donna Heiderstadt

A transatlantic cruise ranks high on many travelers' bucket lists, especially those who love the camaraderie and adventure of a voyage by ship. Today's roughly 4,000-nautical-mile transatlantic crossing is more akin to the pre-aviation "Grand Tour" enjoyed by wealthy Americans than the immigration journeys many of our European ancestors made from the 17th to early 20th centuries.

Leisurely and luxurious, a one-way sailing offers fine dining, wellness-oriented pampering, enlightening lectures, glamorous nightlife and plenty of time to relax. Transatlantic cruises are also a solution for travelers who prefer not to fly and a tempting option for cruise lovers seeking a longer itinerary at an affordable price.

Is a transatlantic cruise right for everyone? Not necessarily, especially for anyone prone to moderate to severe sea sickness. But for those who love sea days — and many cruisers do — a crossing can offer an uninterrupted "floating resort" experience with the added bonus of delivering you to Europe or returning you home without a cramped transatlantic flight.

Here's everything you need to know about cruising the Atlantic — plus a selection of the best transatlantic cruises you can book in 2023.

Which cruise lines offer transatlantic crossings?

transatlantic cruises sep 2023

While Cunard Line is most famous for its weekly crossings between Southampton, England and New York City, which sail from April to December on its ocean liner Queen Mary 2, pretty much every major cruise line offers transatlantic crossings. These generally take place in the spring (late March to early May) as ships are repositioned from the Caribbean to Europe and in the fall (September to November) when vessels sail from Europe to the U.S. to begin Canada/New England and Caribbean itineraries.

Also known as repositioning cruises, these sailings are usually longer than a traditional crossing and often include several port calls beyond the city of embarkation and disembarkation. Even better, cruise fares for these itineraries are typically one-third to one-half the price of a cruise of the same length that visits a new port every day. This makes them a great deal for travelers looking to settle into shipboard life rather than just sightsee.

These types of transatlantic/repositioning itineraries are offered by Azamara, Carnival, Celebrity, Disney, Holland America, MSC, Norwegian, Oceania, Regent, Royal Caribbean, Princess, Seabourn, Sea Dream Yacht Club, Silversea, Star Clippers, Windstar, Viking and Virgin.

When is the best time of year for transatlantic cruises?

The best time to take a transatlantic cruise depends on what you're looking for: great weather, smooth seas, the best price or specific ports of call.

Generally speaking, May, June and July are recommended for warmer weather and gentler seas — before the Atlantic hurricane season peaks in August, September and October — although storms can arise any time of the year.

March, April and November, while not ideal due to cooler temperatures that can limit on-deck and poolside enjoyment, are a good option and a terrific value, especially if the ship's route is a southerly one between Florida and the Mediterranean rather than between Northern Europe and New York.

As noted above, the best prices are generally in spring and fall for repositioning cruises. These itineraries may also visit several appealing ports in the Mediterranean or Caribbean as well as call on the Azores, Madeira, Canary Islands, Iceland or Bermuda in the Atlantic.

How long does the crossing take?

transatlantic cruises sep 2023

It varies. The classic nonstop transatlantic itinerary aboard Queen Mary 2 is a seven-night voyage between New York and Southampton (and vice versa). On the other hand, transatlantic repositioning cruises generally range in length from 11 to 21 nights, with an average of 14 nights (seven or eight of them typically sea days).

Will the seas be rough?

It's up to Mother Nature. At times the Atlantic can be smooth sailing, even in spring and fall, and yet unpredictable wind and water current patterns can create rough seas seemingly out of nowhere any time of year.

Captains can generally maneuver around storms — and try to do so whenever possible for the comfort of all onboard. In addition, modern cruise ships are equipped with stabilizers that reduce a ship's rolling motion due to wind or waves.

However, if you're even slightly prone to seasickness, don't throw caution to the wind. You'll be better off on a larger ship (pick a cabin located midship on a lower deck) and be sure to pack medication, patches, bands or whatever works best for you. While it may seem counter-intuitive, having a window or balcony actually helps offset seasickness since it offers fresh air and a horizon view, so opt for an ocean-view or balcony cabin over an inside one.

Which side of the ship is best for a transatlantic crossing?

It honestly doesn't make much difference whether you book a cabin on the port (left) or starboard (right) side of the ship since most daytime views will be of the ocean. If, however, you're departing from a Mediterranean port, say Rome or Barcelona, for a southerly crossing, booking a starboard cabin might offer a view of the Rock of Gibraltar if your ship transits between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic during daylight hours. For a U.S.-to-Europe eastward crossing, you'd want the opposite, a port-side cabin.

Similarly, if your crossing takes you from Northern Europe on a northerly route to the U.S. and you want to be among the first to spot land, perhaps Greenland or Newfoundland, book a starboard cabin. But if you are cruising into New York Harbor just before dawn and want to see the Statue of Liberty from your cabin, you'll need to book on the port side.

More important for an Atlantic crossing location-wise is the deck your cabin is on and whether it is situated forward, midship or aft. In general, the ship's movement as it cruises through any rough seas will feel less severe if your cabin is located midship and is on one of the lower or middle decks versus the top-most decks.

Which ports do transatlantic cruises visit?

transatlantic cruises sep 2023

Where you embark and disembark will determine your route and the ports you potentially call on. Ships repositioning to or from the Baltic and the British Isles generally take a northerly route and vessels sailing from the Mediterranean cross on a more southerly route, especially if they are repositioning to or from a winter homeport in Florida.

On a northerly crossing, you can expect to embark in a port such as Copenhagen, Rotterdam, Southampton or New York and, depending on the length of the cruise, call on ports in Ireland (Dublin or Cork), Iceland (Reykjavik), Greenland (Qaqortoq or Nuuk), Atlantic Canada (St. John's in Newfoundland or Sydney or Halifax in Nova Scotia) and Bermuda (King's Wharf).

On a southerly crossing between Barcelona or Rome in the Mediterranean and Miami or Fort Lauderdale, typical ports of call include Madeira, Grand Canary or Tenerife in the Canary Islands, Ponta Delgada in the Azores, and one or two islands in the Caribbean, such as St. Maarten or Puerto Rico.

Is it better to book an eastbound or westbound cruise?

Which direction you book really depends on whether you're aboard for the experience or you're using the crossing as a substitute for a flight to get to or return from a European vacation. Just keep in mind a few factors:

Aside from Queen Mary 2 crossings, westbound transatlantic repositioning cruises (from Europe to the U.S.) take place in the fall during the Atlantic hurricane season, although some are scheduled for mid-to-late November when storm formation has generally diminished. Eastbound cruises (from the U.S. to Europe) happen in spring, a season also often known for periods of gray skies and rain.

When considering westbound versus eastbound crossings, factor in the time change. While a transatlantic cruise is a terrific way to avoid the jet lag caused by flying across multiple time zones in a single day, you will be subject to almost daily reminders to reset your clock.

On westbound cruises, you'll have to set your clock back at night, thus gaining an extra hour of sleep on most days. On eastbound cruises, you'll set it ahead an hour and lose an hour of leisure time or sleep.

Another factor to keep in mind is that unless you plan to return home on another transatlantic cruise, you'll also need to book a one-way flight. Before committing to a specific eastbound or westbound itinerary, always check your flight options because one-way tickets can sometimes be more expensive than round-trip fares.

Best transatlantic cruises for 2023

There are dozens of opportunities to cross the Atlantic by cruise ship, but here are some of the best itineraries in the coming year:

Cunard's transatlantic crossing on Queen Mary 2 (April to December 2023)

transatlantic cruises sep 2023

There's nothing quite like it. Cunard 's weekly transatlantic crossing between New York and Southampton (or vice versa) aboard the 2,691-guest Queen Mary 2 celebrates the grand age of ocean liners. These seven-night voyages are all about the sea, with interludes of culinary enjoyment and evening entertainment designed for travelers who appreciate formality and glamour.

A typical day might include time in the library perusing the largest book collection at sea, an illuminating astronomy lesson in the onboard planetarium and traditional afternoon tea.

The evening lineup generally starts with a multi-course dinner (same table and same waiter nightly) followed by a Broadway-inspired show, an abridged Shakespeare play or even a magic act. The ship is also famous for its Gala Evenings capped off with Champagne sipping and dancing to a live orchestra. Yes, pack those ballgowns and tuxes.

Cruise fares start at $949 per person for an inside cabin and $1,276 per person for a balcony cabin.

Virgin Voyage's 15-night Miami to the Med cruise (April 22–May 7, 2023)

transatlantic cruises sep 2023

With an onboard ambiance that rivals a youthful beach club, Virgin Voyages ' 2,770-guest Valiant Lady will keep the party going day and night on its 15-night Miami to the Med transatlantic crossing .

The ship's 20 excellent dining venues, cutting-edge entertainment (campy and a bit naughty — think drag queen bingo), impressive lineup of wellness classes (from yoga at sunrise to On-the-Upswing bungee aerobics) and fun activities ('90s boy band dance class anyone?) provide plenty of ways to pass the time.

This sun-seekers itinerary heads from Miami to Virgin's Beach Club at Bimini in the Bahamas, followed by a leisurely eight-day Atlantic crossing and calls on Lisbon, Portugal; Cadiz, Spain; and Palma de Mallorca before guests disembark in Barcelona. A Sea Terrace cabin with a balcony starts at $2,378 per cabin—or less than $1,200 per person.

Disney's 13-night eastbound transatlantic cruise (May 7-20, 2023)

transatlantic cruises sep 2023

For certain Disney fans—namely childless adult couples and empty nesters — who love the brand's storytelling and Imagineering but who prefer not to share a two-week cruise with hundreds of kids and teens, this 13-night eastbound transatlantic cruise itinerary from Miami to Barcelona aboard the 2,500-guest Disney Dream is a solution. It happens when almost everyone ages 5 to 18 is still in school. Yes, some kids will be on board, but not in overwhelming numbers.

On top of the crossing's seven sea days — when Disney Cruise Line offers all kinds of immersive entertainment, excellent onboard dining and plenty of pool time on this southerly route in spring — the sailing includes six culturally rich ports: Ponta Delgada, Azores; Lisbon, Portugal; and Cadiz, Malaga, Cartagena and Barcelona in Spain.

With fares for verandah staterooms starting at $4,237 for two adults (or about $2,118 per person), that's a brand immersion that's far more affordable than any two-week Disney theme park vacation.

Holland America's 20-day Viking Passage (July 2-22, 2023)

transatlantic cruises sep 2023

For a northerly transatlantic cruise taking place in summer and visiting 12 ports in six countries — making it a true hybrid of an ocean crossing and traditional cruise — check out Holland America's 20-day Viking Passage aboard 1,964-guest Zuiderdam.

The ship departs from Rotterdam in the Netherlands and visits Norway, Iceland, Greenland and Canada (Labrador, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia) before calling on Portland, Maine and concluding in Boston. There are only seven sea days and three of those include scenic cruising.

There are, however, a few caveats. Even in July, temperatures will be on the cooler side in most ports and Holland America passengers, especially on longer sailings, tend to be mostly older retirees. For sea days, Zuiderdam has an indoor pool with a retractable roof and onboard programming that includes HAL's BBC Earth in Concert, Billboard Onboard and a lineup of shows on the World Stage with its 270-degree LED screen.

At $2,799 per person for an inside cabin and $5,299 per person for a balcony cabin, fares are on the pricier side, mainly because it's mid-summer and a three-week itinerary.

Celebrity's 14-night Italy, France & Bermuda Trans (Oct. 30–Nov. 13, 2023)

transatlantic cruises sep 2023

Celebrity Cruises ' transatlantic crossings are timed to seasonal ship repositioning. Its Italy, France & Bermuda Trans sailing offers 14 nights aboard its newest ship, Celebrity Beyond, as that ship switches from its summer homeport in Rome to Fort Lauderdale ahead of the winter Caribbean cruise season.

The sailing features port calls in La Spezia, Italy (for Florence/Pisa); Nice, France; Malaga, Spain; King's Wharf, Bermuda; and Nassau, Bahamas, along with eight sea days.

Accommodating 3,260 guests, Celebrity Beyond is a megaship designed with grown-ups in mind. You'll find multiple hot tubs but no waterslides, as well as contemporary décor, 32 sophisticated food-and-beverage outlets (including Voyages, the first Daniel Boulud restaurant at sea), an indoor Solarium pool and a glittering Grand Plaza housing the line's signature Martini Bar.

Inside cabins start at $1,499 per person and balcony cabins at $2,329 per person.

Viking's 14-day Atlantic Ocean Passage (Nov. 3-16, 2023)

transatlantic cruises sep 2023

Guests aboard Viking Sea's Spain to West Indies sailing will cross the Atlantic from Barcelona to San Juan, Puerto Rico. The ship will call on the Spanish coastal cities of Valencia and Cadiz, Funchal on the scenic Portuguese island of Madeira, and Phillipsburg on the beach-rimmed Dutch-Caribbean island of St. Martin.

The 930-passenger Viking Sea is an adults-only ship featuring a sleek Scandinavian design. Viking guests can enjoy elevated (and complimentary) dining in eight venues, as well as daily activities that include lectures by guest speakers and resident historians, unlimited access to the thermal suite at the Liv Nordic Spa, a main pool with a retractable roof (plus an aft Infinity Pool and hot tub), and complimentary beer and wine with lunch and dinner.

Better still, the transatlantic cruise fare is almost half that of a typical two-week Viking itinerary, with balcony cabins starting at $3,299 per person.

Princess Cruises' 15-day Tropical Passage (Nov. 10-25, 2023)

transatlantic cruises sep 2023

To snag a great deal on a Princess cruise and enjoy a southerly November crossing that culminates with a five-day swing through the Caribbean, check out the 15-day Tropical Passage aboard the 3,660-guest Sky Princess.

The sailing begins in London (Southampton) and ends in Fort Lauderdale. In between, the ship will visit Ponta Delgada in the Azores and Antigua, St. Maarten, Puerto Rico and Grand Turk in the Caribbean, with a total of nine days at sea.

Sky Princess, which debuted in 2019, features three pools, a glittering Italian-style Piazza (home to Alfredo's Pizzeria — some of the best pizza at sea), a main dining room with menus that change daily and include delicious Chocolate Journeys desserts, four specialty dining venues (at an extra cost), poolside Movies Under the Stars and original production shows in the Princess Theater.

Inside cabins start at $948 per person; balcony cabins are priced from $1,478 per person.

Regent Seven Seas Cruises' 21-night Rome-to-Miami cruise (Nov. 13–Dec. 4, 2023)

transatlantic cruises sep 2023

Regent's 21-night Rome to Miami itinerary on the 750-passenger Seven Seas Splendor begins with a low-season jaunt around the Mediterranean and continues with a visit to the scenic Canary Islands. After a five-day Atlantic crossing, the luxury ship calls on a pair of Caribbean islands before reaching Miami.

While not a bargain by any means, this three-week cruise aboard Regent Seven Seas Cruises ' newest ship is an all-inclusive splurge. Business-class airfare, transfers, five-star cuisine and unlimited beverages, gratuities, Wi-Fi and most shore excursions are all included.

The first week takes in the beauty of Rome, Tuscany (from Livorno) and Cinque Terre (from La Spezia). Then it's on to Nice and Toulon in France and Palamos, Palma de Mallorca and Barcelona in Spain. Seven Seas Splendor will call on Lanzarote and Santa Cruz de la Palma in the Canary Islands before heading across the Atlantic to the islands of St. Maarten and Puerto Rico before disembarking passengers in Miami.

All-inclusive fares start at $14,099 per person.

Bottom line

No matter your reason for considering a transatlantic cruise, you're guaranteed to experience the secret magic of sea days, with ample time to relax and unwind. With no land in sight for roughly a week, you can enjoy the ship's amenities without feeling rushed. Make new friends over coffee or a game of bridge, watch movies in your cabin, learn more about the world during lectures by onboard experts or treat yourself to rejuvenating massages and facials in the spa.

Even better, per-night rates are typically lower on crossings than on round-trip, port-intensive cruises, so you can enjoy a longer sailing at a fraction of the usual cost. No matter which transatlantic cruise you deem best for your travel style and interests, it is sure to be a memorable bucket-list trip.

Back when ships were used less for cruising and more for traveling, the transatlantic was the big one, the sort of trip a person might take once in their life. Today, the transatlantic is less about passage than it is a rite of passage, a cool throwback voyage that travel enthusiasts should try at least once. And when you experience yours on a Carnival Journeys cruise, not only will you find cool island ports sprinkled throughout your time at sea, but you’ll enjoy Carnival’s signature onboard fun in between stops.

Transatlantic Cruises

The best of classic sailing.

Experience the golden age of ocean travel on a Transatlantic cruise with Princess®. Get to know the tranquility of the sea, and meet the cultures and stories that lie ashore. Choose from itineraries that take you to the castles of the British Isles, the beaches of the Mediterranean and the fjords of Scandinavia and Russia. Feel the thrill of classic cruising while basking in the comfort of home on a cruise across the Atlantic Ocean.

Transatlantic Cruise Departure Ports

Our departure ports are as iconic as the destinations on each itinerary. Arrive a few days early to your Transatlantic cruise or spend time upon arrival exploring the wonders that lie within these cities.

  • Ft. Lauderdale
  • London (Southampton)

Until it was popularized by the 1992 Olympics, Barcelona was a hidden gem amidst Europe’s diverse landscapes. Now it’s widely recognized for its architectural masterpieces and spirited customs. On European cruises from Barcelona, leave enough time before you depart to visit Park Güell — a UNESCO World Heritage Site — and feel inspired by the colors and unique artistry that lies in the park and throughout the entire city.

Copenhagen boasts equal parts charm and culture. Before you set sail on your European cruise, indulge in thrills at Tivoli Gardens, and ride a bike along Nyhavn’s waterways, passing multi-colored homes on the way. Tour ancient fortresses, like Kronborg Castle, which inspired Shakespeare’s “Hamlet.” Or make a stop to see Copenhagen’s most famous symbol, The Little Mermaid.

Fort Lauderdale has long been known for its white-sand beaches, but has recently become famous for its blossoming art scene — among many other things. Before your Transatlantic cruise, browse galleries on Las Olas Boulevard. Stop for a drink at one of the waterfront cafes. Or ride through the Everglades, a 1.5-million acre UNESCO World Heritage Site, and look for the wildlife that call these lands home.

From double-decker buses and telephone booths to medieval castles and monuments, experience the best of the city and countryside on a European cruise from Southampton. Ride on the London Eye, and watch the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace. Then head west and walk the hallways of Windsor Castle, or travel even further to learn about the mystery of Stonehenge.

The cosmopolitan center of America, New York City, is waiting to be explored. On a Transatlantic cruise with Princess, arrive early to spend the day shopping in SoHo, and then stroll through the Museum of Modern Art. Sail past the Statue of Liberty, walk through Central Park and snap a photo in front of the 238 billboards in Times Square. Or ascend the Empire State building and take in sweeping views of it all from 1,250 feet above.

Italy’s capital city is something of a dream. Grand chapels and stone angels line the roads, whispering secrets of Rome’s past. On a cruise to Europe from Rome, arrive early to toss a coin into Trevi Fountain. Legend has it, you’ll be guaranteed return to The Eternal City. Then walk in the footsteps of Emperors at the Colosseum, and receive a blessing from the Pope at St. Peter’s Square.

Why a Transatlantic Cruise

A classic cruise experience.

Just as enjoyable as the excursions ashore is the time spent at sea. With all Transatlantic cruises beginning or ending stateside, cut down on air travel and spend more time luxuriating in the ship’s amenities en route to your destinations. Our itineraries were crafted to maximize time at sea with unique port visits, giving you ample time to relax on board and adventure on land. Experience the best of both worlds with Princess.

Transatlantic excursions

Our award-winning Transatlantic cruise shore excursions bring you up close to ancient history, cultures and architecture. Live like a royal in England, uncover medieval mysteries in Scotland and venture to geothermal wonders in Iceland. Or sip flavorful wines while overlooking the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean. With ports that change every year, experience all the best destinations on a Transatlantic cruise with Princess.

Transatlantic Cruise Onboard Experience

Curated comfort, world-class entertainment and international flavors await you.

On Transatlantic cruises, indulge in international flavors and world-class entertainment – like Broadway-style productions and an onboard casino – without ever leaving the ship. Unwind with comfortable stateroom accommodations and refreshing spa treatments, and feel at home with Princess’ signature service. No matter the ship or itinerary you choose, experience the best of ocean travel with Princess.

Accommodations

Your home away from home

Your stateroom is where you rest and recharge between adventures. That’s why every room is equipped with the expertly designed Princess Luxury Bed, 100% Jacquard-woven cotton linens and our SLEEP program created by a board-certified sleep expert. From interior cabins to full suites, unwind in any of our staterooms, and enjoy peace of mind with the option of connected rooms for families of four or more traveling together.

Flavors that inspire

From the spice of Moroccan tagine to the sweetness of Greek Baklava, Europe’s flavor profile is incredibly diverse. On a Transatlantic cruise with Princess, taste the best of the Europe on board with specialty dining. Enjoy lunch at a British-style pub and try English favorites like bangers and mash or shepherd's pie. Or savor hearty Italian pastas at Sabatini’s℠ Italian Trattoria and top it off with homemade gelato.

Entertainment

Find your joy

Embark on adventures by day, and indulge in entertainment by night. Watch Movies Under the Stars® at our 300-square-foot outdoor theater. Attend original productions from Broadway legend Stephen Schwartz, composer of  Wicked . Or learn traditional moves, like Flamenco or Irish stepdance, and listen to popular music from the destinations on your itinerary. On a European cruise with Princess, the choice is yours.

Reset, recharge, relax

Your European cruise should be every bit as refreshing as it is inspiring. Unwind in the Sanctuary, a retreat just for adults, and relish in tranquility. Or book an appointment at the Lotus Spa®, named "Best Spa on a Cruise Ship" by Spafinder Wellness 365™. Enjoy relaxing treatments — like facials, hot stone massages and detoxifying wraps — that will leave you recharged for upcoming adventures.

Vegas hits the seas

Experience the thrill of cards, dice, roulette and blackjack at the casino onboard our European cruises. Learn from experts — like our staff or perhaps other guests nearby — and put your skills to the test. More casual players can pull up a seat at the slot machines for the same adrenaline at their own speed. For an afternoon full of games, join fellow travelers for Bingo, or compete in scheduled group tournaments.

Celebrations & Romance

Love blooms on the love boat

It's difficult to imagine something more romantic than sailing through the alluring cities and charming countryside of Europe. While on board your European cruise, we cater to your sentimental side with private dining on your balcony — like breakfast for two or a sunset dinner — honeymoon packages, flowers and chocolates delivered to your room and couples-only massages in the Sanctuary.

Ships sailing transatlantic cruises

Our Princess fleet includes ships that range from small to large. From a balcony stateroom, marvel at breathtaking shorelines passing by before enjoying international cuisine in one of our many eateries during your Transatlantic cruise.

Transatlantic Cruises

Experience the finest cities along the grand Atlantic’s coasts and the intriguing ports-of-call along the way with a Transatlantic cruise. 

Truly cherish your time onboard one of the industry’s best cruise ships as you let the ocean breeze carry you along. Gaze upon the rippling waters of the Atlantic Ocean as you await each carefully chosen port city’s experience. You may spend some time in Caribbean islands, the Western Mediterranean or Northern Europe during your cruise, each bringing something new and exciting to your vacation.

A Transatlantic cruise is one trip you won’t soon forget.

Things to Do on a Transatlantic Cruise

A transatlantic cruise is a great way to cross the pond without flying. It’s a leisurely experience, but it’s also connected to the past. Get a sense of the golden age of cruising, when it wasn't just a vacation, but a journey to a new life. Many transatlantic cruises travel from London to New York or vice versa, but you can also find transatlantic sailings that start anywhere along the West Coast of Europe and sail to several ports along the East Coast of the Americas. Featured below are several of our favorite things to do when taking advantage of a transatlantic cruise:

Buckingham Palace in London, England

  • Experience the pomp and circumstance of the world’s most famed monarchies with a visit to Buckingham Palace in London. You can tour the Queen’s palace, and make sure to catch the changing of the guards.  
  • Have a night on the town and attend a show on Broadway in New York City. See a thoughtful play or a musical that leaves you quoting lines and singing the tunes for weeks.  

Christ the Redeemer Statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

  • Visit Tijuca National Park and take the train to the top of Corcovado Mountain in Rio de Janeiro to see the iconic Christ the Redeemer Statue, which is 125 feet tall.  
  • Indulge in the onboard activities of your ship. On a transatlantic cruise, your ship is a major attraction in and of itself. Be sure to sign up for an enrichment class, head to the spa for some relaxation and hit the dance floor at night, perhaps after dinner and a show.  

La Sagrada Familia Church in Barcelona, Spain

  • Hit the beach – South Beach, to be specific. This stretch of sand and shore in Miami is famous for attracting beachgoers the world over.  
  • Take a tour of the fanciful architecture of Antoni Gaudi in Barcelona. The Spanish architect has several fascinating buildings in the city, including La Sagrada Familia Church and La Pedrera.

What’s new for Florida cruises in 2024

ORLANDO, Fla. — The world’s largest cruise ship headlines a big comeback year for major hardware arriving in Florida.

Royal Caribbean’s Icon of the Seas will make a sizable splash when it arrives in Miami in January, having taken over the title from what are now its little Oasis-class sisters.

But what will now be the second-largest cruise ship, Utopia of the Seas, the last of six Oasis-class behemoths, is also Florida-bound, arriving at Port Canaveral in July for its debut.

The Sunshine State will also see the newest Disney Cruise Line vessel with Disney Treasure’s arrival in December, on top of DCL’s opening of its new Bahamas destination, Lighthouse Point, which will pull in ship visits from both Port Canaveral and Disney’s new second Florida home in Port Everglades.

Port Everglades will also feature its own sizable debut when Princess Cruises’ new Sphere class vessel the Sun Princess arrives in October.

First up, though, is Royal Caribbean’s new flagship for its new class.

Royal Caribbean’s Icon of the Seas

Debuts from PortMiami on Jan. 27, sailing seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries.

The 20-deck, 250,800-gross-ton, 1,198-foot-long cruise ship comes in about 15,000 gross tons bigger than, but with a layout similar to, Oasis-class vessels. It features eight neighborhoods carved out to support the flow of what could be 7,600 passengers on board at max capacity. The most notable is the new AquaDome neighborhood, a massive 363-ton engineering feat that sits at the top and front of the ship, which will be home to the line’s signature AquaTheater show, migrating from its traditional outdoor venue on Oasis ships.

Other new neighborhoods include: family-friendly Surfside, replacing the Boardwalk space on the aft of the ship; Thrill Island on the top deck, hosting the largest water park at sea, called Category 6, and a feature called the Crown’s Edge that is part ropes course and part thrill ride; Chill Island, also on the top deck, with the line’s first swim-up bar at sea, with in-water loungers and tables, among four pools within the neighborhood; and The Hideaway, which is home to a suspended infinity pool 135 feet above the ocean along with a multilevel sun terrace, more whirlpools and a bar.

The primary stage show is a version of “The Wizard of Oz,” while the ship is getting the largest skating rink in the fleet, home to even more entertainment productions, with each of the three main stages putting on two productions each per sailing.

New dining features on board include a 1920s-themed, high-end specialty space called Empire Supper Club, and a food hall concept called the AquaDome Market, with venues dedicated to macaroni and cheese and crepes among others.

Royal Caribbean’s Utopia of the Seas

Debuts from Port Canaveral on July 22, sailing three- and four-night Bahamas itineraries.

On what could be the final Oasis-class ship, the cruise line is giving it short cruise duties from the Orlando-area port, with each sailing making a stop at Royal’s private Bahamas island, Castaway Cay. Utopia is currently under construction at Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, France.

It will have more than 40 venues for food and beverage, including a new tiki bar concept called the Pesky Parrot that will be situated indoors on the Promenade, with fruit-based cocktails and frozen drinks. Also coming is an interactive dining experience themed as if participants were riding in a classic train car. The multi-course meal looks to allow for a simulated trip to different destinations, with changing story lines married to the cuisine. Similar to Icon of the Seas, Utopia's Central Park will be the new home for Izumi hibachi and teppanyaki, including the offshoot Izumi in the Park, a walk-up outdoor venue that serves fresh sushi and Japanese-inspired sweets.

One thing Oasis-class ships have that Icon of the Seas won’t is the popular 10-deck spiraling dry slide, The Ultimate Abyss. Utopia’s is set to be 43 feet longer than its sister ships’ versions, and will feature transparent windows and “zoom boosting rollers” within the tube to make the mat ride even faster.

Princess Cruises' Sun Princess

Debuts in February sailing the Mediterranean, but begins sailing from Port Everglades on Oct. 14 on seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries.

The first of a new Sphere class, with a 4,314-passenger capacity based on double occupancy, it’s the largest ship in the Princess fleet, coming in at 21 decks and 175,500 gross tons, which is about 30,000 more tons and 750 more guests than its last class of ships.

Currently under construction at the Fincantieri shipyards in Italy, its design will feature more balconies, a supersized 1,000-seat main theater called Princess Arena with an in-the-round layout with movable seats, and a three-deck main dining room.

A pair of unique offerings on the ship will be a bistro called The Butcher’s Block by Dario, from celebrity Tuscany butcher Dario Cecchini, and the Spellbound by Magic Castle venue in partnership with Hollywood landmark Magic Castle, a private club for the Academy of Magical Arts. The cruise venue will feature Victorian-era stylings amid themed rooms where servers will perform sleight-of-hand tricks while delivering theatrical cocktails.

Disney Cruise Line’s Disney Treasure

Debuts from Port Canaveral on Dec. 21 sailing seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries.

The 144,000-gross-ton, 4,000-passenger vessel sister ship to 2022’s Disney Wish will have a slew of unique features many of which pull from theme park nostalgia, including bars themed to the Haunted Mansion, Jungle Cruise and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. It’s currently under construction at the Meyer-Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.

Similar to Wish, its top-deck feature will be the AquaMouse, a mix of a dark ride themed to the animated Mickey Mouse cartoons and a water coaster similar to the AquaDuck found on Disney Dream and Fantasy.

A new Broadway-style stage show based on “Moana” will join existing shows “Beauty and the Beast” and “Disney Seas the Day” as it takes on the longer sailing duties while Disney Wish continues short Bahamas sailings. A new dinner theater concept around the Pixar film “Coco” will debut as well.

Other unique touches for the ship include Peter Pan and Captain Hook stern characters, an Aladdin-themed Grand Hall atrium and a new dessert venue with a "Zootopia" theme.

New at the ports

Port Canaveral isn’t just welcoming two new ships in 2024 with Disney Treasure and Royal’s Utopia of the Seas, but is also bringing in two new brands, as both Princess Cruises and Celebrity Cruises will begin regular service for the first time. Caribbean Princess arrives on Nov. 27 to sail six- and eight-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries, while Celebrity Equinox arrives on Dec. 3 to sail mostly seven-night Caribbean itineraries. The older ships are the lines’ first forays into the Central Florida market, but Princess Cruises has already announced it will send one of its newer ships, Sky Princess, to the port in 2025.

PortMiami, meanwhile, expects MSC Cruises to finish its new terminal, which will help solidify its reclamation of the title of world’s busiest cruise port. MSC’s offering, which will be able to handle three megaships and 36,000 passenger movements daily, will join new and refurbished terminals from Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Norwegian and Virgin Voyages that have redefined the Miami skyline in the last few years.

Port Everglades will continue to welcome Disney fans to the revamped Terminal 4, the cruise line’s new second Florida home that opened in November. The 104,000-square-foot space will host both Disney Dream and Magic through the year, and will expand further in 2025.

Beyond Florida

Disney Cruise Line will open its second private Bahamas destination, Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point, welcoming the first ship on June 8. Over the summer the line is limiting visits to the 700-acre site on the southern tip of the island of Eleuthera to mostly sailings on board Disney Magic from Port Everglades during three-, four- or five-night voyages.

Disney Fantasy, though, will also make a pair of stops during longer trips from Port Canaveral, and then make several trips in the fall, while Disney Wish sailings will be limited to Disney’s original private destination, Castaway Cay.

Lighthouse Point includes a main beach, family beach and adults-only beach plus an arts and cultural pavilion, water play area with two slides, gaming pavilion, market-style dining, shopping and kids club.

It’s the first of three new cruise line projects coming online in the Bahamas, but neither Carnival Cruise Line’s Celebration Key on Grand Bahama Island nor Royal Caribbean’s tinier Royal Beach Club in Nassau will be ready until 2025.

Disney Cruise Line’ s new destination on the island of Eleuthera will be a vibrant beach retreat infused with the color and energy of Bahamian artistry. In addition to the pristine sands, families will enjoy a recreation center, dining, shopping, a water playground, a cultural pavilion and more. A brightly colored interactive family water play area will include...
