Transatlantic?

Has anyone every done a transatlantic cruise - on any line?

I must admit I've been really intrigued by this concept. I've heard that they can get pretty rocky though out in the middle of the ocean. It's totally on my bucket list to do some day. I wonder what kind of activities Disney offers to keep you busy with all those sea days in a row.

We have considered it. The Queen Mary II will get you to London or South Hampton in 7 days from New York City. That is 7 days of nothing but water to look at too. I don't know if I could handle it if it were rocky out there.... I am interested, but it is pricey and sometimes plane tickets are cheaper!

We have always thought of doing it to New York but balk at the cost to just look at water for so long, just seems such a waste of time. Think what you can spend the money you save and what you can do with the extra time saved.

Sally-Ann I think one of the things that appeals to me about it is that I would HAVE to relax. I wouldn't need to be running from point A to point B and end up more tired from my vacation than when I started. SO many times I hear people that have come back from vacation and they've had a great time, but they have crammed so many activities into that week away that they're exhausted and didn't take any time to relax. Hey! I'm usually one of those people! One of the things I love most about cruising is that it forces me to slow down and relax.

I think my days on a transatlantic would be spent with a fruity drink in my hand in the jacuzzi - lounging in the spa - watching movies - doing wine tastings - learning how to make towel animals and the like. I might even read a book! Which is something I haven't really had the time to do in years (other than a travel guide). It sounds pretty posh to me. Pure leisure time.

Kristen, you worded just what I was thinking perfectly. I have to force myself to just SIT and BE sometimes. On a balcony with nothing but water in sight, I feel guiltless doing nothing and just letting time slip by.

When Geordon and I did our 7 day Western Caribbean, we took a nap every single day. I know that sounds like a weird thing to really love about a vacation, but it was honestly one of my favorite parts. We'd go on a tour or something in the morning, take an afternoon nap about 3, then get dressed for dinner and the evenings events. It was awesome.

I feel a mid-day nap recharges your battery for all things planned in the evening. I plan on doing that when I am at WDW since my friend and I will start each day early to try and beat the crowds.
