Rouen has the distinction of being both a major sea and river port. The Port of Rouen (HAROPA) hosts many ships from around the world throughout the year.
From the mouth of the Seine between Honfleur and Le Havre, and after passing under the Normandy Bridge and the Tancarville Bridge, you sail up the beautiful meanders of the Seine through the heart of a bucolic landscape, interspersed with cliffs, towns and villages like Caudebec-en-Caux, Duclair or La Bouille, and castles and abbeys like Jumièges or Saint Martin de Boscherville: a valley that navigators have followed since time immemorial and where they have left their mark.
Lots of sea cruises come in Normandy : six hours of sailing will bring you to Rouen, seaport and river port, and the gateway to Paris.
Disembarking from the ship, a special welcome for cruise ship travellers is provided by the Tourist Office at the Cruise Ship Terminal on the River Seine, a few minutes from the centre of Rouen.
