In Nantes Saint-Nazaire 3 terminals are available on the Loire estuary to accommodate cruise liners: in Nantes city Centre (for liners up to 200 m), in Montoir-de-Bretagne (300 m) and in St. Nazaire (180 m).

Ideally located between land and sea, our destination is situated between two big cities: Nantes and St. Nazaire. They both reveal cultural and historical treasures as well as an antique charm tinged with modernism and creativity. Cruise passengers will enjoy historic Nantes: a city of Arts, Culture and Shopping and old St. Nazaire: WWII souvenirs, beaches and wild life. St. Nazaire area is a first step for industrial tourism (STX Shipyard or Airbus factory).

Nestled on the river Loire, Nantes is the natural gateway and the starting point for numerous excursions to the Loire Valley Unesco sites and more.
