My super quick 25-hour trip to Honolulu just about killed me. I’ve had jet lag all week and it just reminds me of why I really enjoy slow travel — like sailing on Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 ocean liner between New York and Southampton, England. With a 7-night crossing, you arrive on the other side relaxed, refreshed, and no zero jet lag.


Savvy Spouse and I always book accommodations that allow us to dine in the Queen’s Grill, which is arguably the best dining room at sea. On our last crossing, we had caviar 5 out of 7 nights, and actually hit the wall on night #6. We had a similar experience on a recent cruise on her sister ship, the Queen Victoria!


Now you might be saying to yourself, I can never afford Queen’s Grill. But on Transatlantic crossings, it’s remarkably affordable. It’s actually cheaper than a business-class airline ticket! The next time you’re headed to Europe, or coming back home, do it the slow way. There’s really no better way to beat jet lag (while packing on a few extra pounds).
