Do they still have cruise ships that go clear across the Atlantic ocean?
Like from London to New York

There are a few...............you'll just have to check each cruise line to find out which one and when.

There are two kids of transatlantic cruises, repositioning cruises, and in the case of Cunard, point to point cruises. Repositioning cruises are exactly what they sound like, for instance, a ship is operating in the Mediterranean and is transitioning to itineraries out of Florida. They typically will have a couple ports on the way.
Point to point cruises for from the US to Europe, then turn around and come back. They don't usually stop at other ports. I believe London to NY or vice versa would be Cunard.

Yes. While there are some ships like the Queen Mary which pretty much only do the Atlantic crossing, many cruise lines have ships that spend part of the year in, say, the Mediterranean, and then cross the Atlantic for the Caribbean cruising season. They take passengers for these repositioning cruises.

While the Queen Mary 2 is a proper ocean liner, which is a different kind of ship from a cruise liner, there are actual cruises taken by cruise ships that cross the Atlantic.
Norwegian Cruise Lines offers several, for example:
Royal Caribbean also offers such cruises.

Yes. However there is only one true ocean liner that does it. The Queen Mary 2. The difference is an ocean liner is made for more speed and can handle rougher waters. They are not as high as a cruise ship so not as top heavy but they have more hull between the lower open deck and the water line. The fastest ocean liner was the SS United States, which used military grade battleship (Iowa class) engines. It is still out there and there is still talk of doing something with it.
