Rouen is the port of Paris! And to visit the Capital of fashion, city of lovers with its iconic monuments, world-class museum collections, city of shopping is easy and fast, only 135 km (90 minutes) away from Rouen. Another not to miss excursions, is that of The Palace of Versailles (80 minutes away). It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of France's foremost tourist attractions. Giverny (50 minutes away) the house and gardens of Claude Monet, is a sure destination for art lovers and can easily be combined with an excursion to Paris.
Currently, we can host two ships of 240 m in the city, year round, but works has started to welcome ships of 250 meters end 2023. We truly are a cruise destination, counting 830 river calls and 30 ocean calls a year. Sailing up the Seine is a not to miss destination and are particularly appreciated by expedition cruises due to their ability to sail to our destination which larger ships can't reach.
Passengers rate Rouen very highly as a destination, and the feedback from cruise companies are always encouraging. We strive to closely work with all actors involved in the cruise industry to make the destination a truly unforgettable experience. We especially create and adapt visits to the need of cruise companies and their passengers, and our cooperation with river cruise companies has given us an advantage in marketing the destination as a not to miss cruise experience. Cruise overcrowding will never be a problem here due to large ship traffic and an influx of thousands of passengers and their autocars. It truly makes for a pleasant experience for both cruisers and locals alike and allow passengers to have fully indulged themselves into the Capital of Normandy.
