French Atlantic Ports
The organization, “French Atlantic Ports,” has been developing its network step by step for the last l0 years, offering a NEW EXPERIENCE to customers each year. In 2013, it includes 10 destinations located on France’s Western Coastline: HONFLEUR, LE HAVRE, CHERBOURG, SAINT-MALO, BREST, LORIENT BELLE-ILE, NANTES SAINT-NAZAIRE, LA ROCHELLE, BORDEAUX AND BAYONNE. Located in the regions of Normandy, Brittany, the Loire Valley as well as South-Western France, these 10 destinations represent their own way of the French “Art de vivre” and leave ever-lasting souvenirs. This Western European itinerary has now become a reality and the ports benefit from regular calls from a board range of cruise lines. Some of them like Ponant, Oceania, Regent, Silversea, Aida Cruises even call on several of our ports on the same itinerary. In 2012, the French Atlantic Ports hosted 303 calls and welcomed 365,000 passengers, compared to 299 calls and 362,000 passengers in 2011.
