Thanks for the fast response. I have done some more searching and found a few that sound like what you are talking about. I wanted to go in February, but there doesn't seem to be any cruises. My main goal is just to get to Europe or any place close to Russia. I would take a train to Russia from anywhere.
Very few passenger transatlantics are scheduled for February. The weather can be quite bad, and that does not translate into good customer service, so the Atlantic ocean in winter is pretty much relegated to cargo ships. Having said that, have you considered travel on a freighter? You can go to the "Freighter and non-conventional cruises" forum for some guidance. I've looked at some, MSC for instance, that carries 6 passengers, costs about 360euro per person each way, and takes about 8-10 days for the actual crossing, depending on where you board and leave the ship. That price is for the entire 35 day round trip, so if you only wanted to book say NYC to Bremerhaven, there would probably be a deep discount.
