The tour operator has made many additions to its all in one program, including roundtrip flights with Air Transat, transfers and the cruise. This year’s additions include more than 10 new ships, itineraries aboard Princess Cruises and Cartagena as a port of embarkation. Moreover, there will once again be cruises sailing out of San Juan and new river cruises will be available as excursions.

“With the growing popularity of our all-in-one cruise package program, we’re always seeking new partners and specific itineraries to fine tune our program and please all of our customers, from families with young children to millennials looking for an adventure at sea,” explains Annick Guérard, Chief Operating Officer at Transat. “Booking a cruise package with Transat means benefitting from Flight Protection and the inflight experience of Air Transat, named World’s Best Leisure Airline at the Skytrax World Airline Awards.”

What's new for 2019

From Tampa to Guadeloupe to San Juan, 46 itineraries are available on 16 different ships, from seven ports of embarkation. With cruise line Pullmantur Cruises, Transat is adding an all-new itinerary sailing out of Cartagena, which will showcase the wonders of Costa Rica and Panama. Fans of all-inclusive packages will now be able to add alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages to Transat cruise packages offered by Costa in the Caribbean and Mediterranean, as with Pullmantur Cruises.

Travellers can sail the Mediterranean Sea to destinations such as Barcelona and Marseille, not to mention Rome and Venice, with 16 itineraries (11 of which are offered on CroisiEurope) and choice of 13 ships.

Furthermore, several European river cruises are offered as extensions to travel itineraries, lasting from a few days to more than a week.
