With more than 430,000 passengers in 2017 and more than 200 cruise ships welcomed, the ports of HAROPA are at the top level on the English Channel / North Sea coast. Thanks to their complementary nature, the three dedicated terminals (Le Havre, Rouen, Honfleur) can accommodate all types of vessels. Whether a stop-over or starting point, their facilities are at the service of shipping lines and passengers.
Maritime cruises: 13% more liners and 9% more passengers
In 2018, HAROPA confirmed its second place as a French cruise port after Marseille, with 225 stop-overs and 477,000 passengers. For the first time, HAROPA has exceeded the 200 stop-over threshold.
The season was marked by numerous boarding offers from Normandy ports (nearly 50 end-of-line visits) and an increasing number of inaugural visits, with 17 new liners visiting the quays of Le Havre, Honfleur and Rouen.
Le Havre's nautical capacities can accommodate up to four of the world's largest cruise ships simultaneously.
The Honfleur terminal is just a few steps from the historic city centre, one of Normandy's main tourist attractions, and at the foot of the Pont de Normandie.
Access to Rouen offers sea cruises the opportunity to discover the loops around the Seine.
These three sites constitute the exclusive maritime gateway to a territory with exceptional tourist riches, the world's leading tourist destination! This growth is the result of excellent collaboration between the ports of HAROPA and the tourist offices in charge of coordinating activity in each of the ports.
