TRAVELLING IS THE WAY FOR EXPERIENCE

TRANSATLANTIC CROSSING

Transatlantic crossings are passages of passengers and cargo across the Atlantic Ocean between the Americas and Europe. Prior to the 19th century, transatlantic crossings were undertaken insailing ships, which was a time consuming and often perilous journey. Transatlantic crossings became faster, safer, and more reliable with the advent of steamships. The Blue Riband is awarded for the record fastest crossing. Grand ocean liners began making regularly scheduled crossings, and soon it became a symbol of national and company status to build the largest, fastest, and most luxurious ocean liner for transatlantic crossings. Transatlantic crossings through water are still slow compared to aircraft crossings, taking anywhere between two weeks and several months to complete. Examples of some famous transatlantic liners are RMS Lusitania, RMS Mauretania , RMS Titanic, SS United States, RMS Queen Mary, SS Normandie, SS France (1961), RMS Queen Elizabeth 2, and RMS Queen Mary 2.
