Prestigious stop-over for cruise liners

Located less than 10 miles from the main English Channel sea route where 500 ships sail daily, the port of Cherbourg is a genuine natural hub for links to England and Ireland.

Two daily departures leave Cherbourg towards England (Portsmouth and Poole) and one towards Ireland (Rosslare). From May to October, the cross Channel offer of services is completed with high speed catamaran crossings to England in only 2h30. Hence, the port of Cherbourg ranks in 1st place among west Channel ports.

In 2009, 674,799 passengers and 194,169 private vehicles crossed the English Channel.

The port of Cherbourg and its marine terminal bear witness to the great transatlantic era and, today, continue to welcome the world's most impressive cruise liners. In 2008, 28 liners transporting 62,445 passengers stopped over in Cherbourg.
2006 is also the year marking the completion of renovation work on the transatlantic terminal. This cruise terminal is a unique facility on the Atlantic – Channel shoreline, capable of welcoming the most prestigious of cruise liners: Queen Elisabeth 2, Legend of the Seas, Black Prince, Jewel of the Seas, MSC Rhapsody...

From the 1st of January 2007, a shuttle service will be provided between the car ferry terminal and the town centre (including a stop at the railway station), based on ferry arrival times.

Facilities in the port of Cherbourg are adaptable to all transport types: containers, bulk, refrigerated and other conventional transport modalities together with technical services: roadsted or quay bunkering, naval repair using a ship elevator.

In 2009, 69,981 heavy goods vehicles transited through the port.

Again in 2007, Brittany Ferries will welcome its new vessel, the Cotentin, to satisfy the needs of heavy goods road transporters (120 vehicles).
