Maritime cruises

Le Havre is the leading cruise port on the north and west coasts of France. Each year, more and more ships - including the largest in circulation - call at Le Havre or make it their start/finish point. This success is confirmed, based on investments and the long-term support of a fast-growing European cruise business.

Maritime cruises have been on the rise for the past 10 years

Ideally located on the passage between the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, the port of Le Havre offers all the facilities to accommodate the largest and smallest liners, 24 hours a day. The diversity of the tourist offer in Le Havre, Normandy and Paris makes it possible to retain visitors, by offering new excursion opportunities at each stopover and all year round.

Year after year, the Normandy port confirms its tourist appeal, and it has become the 2nd French cruise port after Marseille.

In 2019, the Celebrity Edge (306 metres, 2,900 passengers) and MCS Grandiosa (331 metres, 6,334 passengers) will make their first stop-over in Baie de Seine directly from the shipbuilding yard in St Nazaire.
