Royal Caribbean International’s new 177,000-ton 4,180-berth Quantum of the Seas will depart Southampton on November 2, 2014, for an 8-night crossing to New York

The North Atlantic run from Southampton to New York has been that ocean’s prime route since the White Star Line first transferred its express operation there in 1909. Cunard, busy experimenting with Fishguard before the First World War intervened in 1914, did not follow until 1919. Now, a number of other ships offer occasional opportunities on this same route, but usually just from delivery voyages from north European shipyards. In the US, meanwhile, Un-Cruise Adventures has recently introduced its eighth ship, the 88-passenger s.s. Legacy. Finally, we look at a couple of forecasts of what features may be included in P&O’s new Britannia, to be delivered in 2015.
