France Travel Planner by Tom Brosnahan & Jane Fisher   Transport by Ship to France
Lots of cross-channel ferryboats, as well as leisure cruise ships...




Channel Ferries

Lots of big, comfortable car and passenger ferryboats sail on numerous routes across the English Channel (La Manche) connecting ports in southern England and Ireland with French ports in Normandy and Brittany.

Some ferry services operate all year round, others are seasonal in the warm summer months. More...

Cruise Ships

The age of the great transatlantic steamships connecting France with all the great port cities in the world has passed, but leisure cruise ships still bring travelers to French ports, especially Le Havre and Cherbourg.
