Le Havre

Le Havre’s port was established in 1517 by King Francis 1st.
Today, it's accessible 24/24, 7 days a week and has the capacity to host any size of cruise ship.
The port has 3 dedicated cruise berths and can accommodate up to 4 cruise ships simultaneously depending on size.
Le Havre benefits from regular calls throughout the year, transit as well as turnaround calls from a broad range of cruise lines: contemporary, premium and luxury.
It’s also a convenient repositioning port to Northern Europe and the Baltic during spring and the Mediterranean and Caribbean in Autumn.
With the extension of the cruises season, Le Havre is also a safe shelter port in case of bad weather conditions.
