Following the visit in February of Mr. Adam Sharp, Manager, Head of Port Operations and Guest Port Services in Europe for Royal Caribbean International, all the different players of cruise industry in Cherbourg were involved in making this call possible and welcome the giant of the seas in optimum conditions. For example, the Port Control, Port SAS, invested in two gangways structures, making possible again the access at the first floor of the very mythic Transatlantic Terminal and improving the flow of embarking and disembarking of the passengers. &nbsp;All the feedbacks were extremely positives, many delighted guests and a cruise line company that will renew her loyalty to the Port and Town of Cherbourg!<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-US" style="font-size: 13.0pt; line-height: 115%; mso-ansi-language: EN-US;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-US" style="font-size: 13.0pt; line-height: 115%; mso-ansi-language: EN-US;">In September, cruises will start again in Cherbourg,<b><span style="color: #cc0099;"> 9 vessels are still expected</span></b><span style="color: #cc0099;">, </span>including 4 large units: the MSC MUSICA September 14, the CELEBRITY ECLIPSE October 2, the AZURA October 27 and the INDEPENDANCE OF THE SEAS October 29.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-US" style="font-size: 13.0pt; line-height: 115%; mso-ansi-language: EN-US;">What’s more, the much awaited return of <b><span style="color: #cc0099;">the Cunard Cruise Line</span></b><span style="color: #cc0099;"></span>will mark the second part of the season with the call of the <b><span style="color: #cc0099;">QUEEN ELIZABETH</span></b><span style="color: #cc0099;">, </span>October 2 (her last stopover in our port dates back 2012).<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-US" style="font-size: 13.0pt; line-height: 115%; mso-ansi-language: EN-US;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><i><span lang="EN-US" style="font-size: 13.0pt; line-height: 115%; mso-ansi-language: EN-US;">2017 is already in process:<o:p></o:p></span></i></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-US" style="font-size: 13.0pt; line-height: 115%; mso-ansi-language: EN-US;">Many enjoyable and qualitative calls are already announced for 2017. <o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-US" style="font-size: 13.0pt; line-height: 115%; mso-ansi-language: EN-US;">About <b><span style="color: #cc0099;">30 vessels are expected next year</span></b><span style="color: #cc0099;">, </span>with some beautiful maiden calls such as the BRITANNIA, the NORVEGIAN JADE or even the NAVIGATORS OF THE SEAS...

others become known by the iconic destinations available through the ship’s shore excursion program.&nbsp; Cherbourg is a port that offers both, as we experienced on two visits, years apart. <o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNoSpacing" style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="MsoNoSpacing" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-US">On our first visit, we went to the Normandy Beaches, with visits to Sainte-Mere-Eglise, and the American Cemetary, and lunch at Arromanches overlooking the remnants of the artificial Mulberry Harbor used to unload soldiers, vehicles and supplies.&nbsp; A detour to La Pointe du Hoc almost caused us to miss our ship, were it not for the kindness of the car rental agent who remained open past closing time, and then drove us back to the ship.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNoSpacing" style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="MsoNoSpacing" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-US">Our most recent trip, on the MSC ORCHESTRA, included only an afternoon call, so we were unable to visit Mont St. Michel, another iconic destination that had eluded us over the years.&nbsp; Instead, we chose another of our favorite pastimes, finding little-known or out-of-the-way places to spend some of the limited time typically available in port.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNoSpacing" style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="MsoNoSpacing" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-US">The Liberation Museum, housed in La Roule, the fort atop the headland overlooking Cherbourg, met our criteria.&nbsp; Assistance from the Tourist Bureau, in the terminal and at the city center, confirmed the welcoming spirit that pervades this port that played such an important role following D-Day in 1944.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNoSpacing" style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="MsoNoSpacing" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-US">I can only speculate on the logistic demands on the local tourism staff when large ships arrive in port, simultaneously spewing thousands of passengers ashore.&nbsp; With limited information available from the ship, we welcomed the good local map at the terminal.&nbsp; Unfortunately, the map pinpointed our destination, but not the fact that it was atop Mount Roule, reachable only by taxi or by the incredibly fit.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNoSpacing" style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="MsoNoSpacing" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-US">That information came at the city center from a staff member who not only called a taxi, but also came outside a few minutes later to ensure that the taxi was actually on its way ?a small but notable gesture.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNoSpacing" style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="MsoNoSpacing" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-US">As for the Liberation Museum, it is a small museum that will appeal to WWII history buffs, as it tells the story of the dark days after the fall of France, the propaganda faced by the French citizenry during the 1940-44 period when the fortress was occupied by the Germans, the Normandy landings and the allied capture of Cherbourg less than three weeks later, after which it became the principal port for the supply of Western Europe.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; It can be visited in a short time (admission ?), and the views from the fortress are spectacular.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNoSpacing" style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="MsoNoSpacing" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-US">Returning to the city center, we were able to spend our remaining time wandering around, having coffee and a tart at one of many cafes that provided a view of the Place Notre Dame and the little&nbsp; touristic train that passed by periodically.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNoSpacing" style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="MsoNoSpacing" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-US">Then back to the ship, finding Tourism staff still at their post to answer any final questions ?another small gesture, but so different from ports where the shoreside staff disappears almost as soon as the first wave of passengers has cleared the pier.&nbsp;

We had no way of researching the town beforehand, so my wife and I just decided to wander around the town centre, taking photos. This worked out well for us.<br /><br />It was a short walk from the cruise terminal, passed the fishing boats and across the bridge. Being very early on a Friday, people were busy going to work and many of the shops were still shut. Of course, the bakeries and patisseries were open, and this was a good thing ! Is it healthy to eat macarons and meringues for breakfast ? I think so.<br /><br />Gradually the shopowners unlocked their doors and put display items out the front. Florist always look good to anyone carrying a camera. We took over 300 photos as ce strolled beyond the pedestrian streets towards the large church and the statue of Napoleon. Then back along the waterfront - stopping 15 minutes to drink a coffee - and continued as fas as the railway station. We would have loved to visit the castle, but sadly our ship was leaving at 1.30pm.<br /><br />Robert and Coralie Watson<br />Australia <br /><br />http://youxiangfoods.com/2013/03/what-did-we-like-about-cherbourg.htmlnoreply@blogger.com (Anonymous)1tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1893884738803272158.post-8843743423115928647Fri, 08 Mar 2013 16:46:00 +00002013-03-08T12:06:56.129-05:00试玩ag-Cherbourg Cruise <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-lD_7lS-dGkM/UToVislT0KI/AAAAAAAAAi8/aheslhzhcwo/s1600/FHbasilique_trinite_141_4156.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-lD_7lS-dGkM/UToVislT0KI/AAAAAAAAAi8/aheslhzhcwo/s1600/FHbasilique_trinite_141_4156.jpg" height="240" width="320" /></a></div><i>MS Nautica, 22nd July, 2012</i><br /><div style="text-align: justify;">The highlight of the day came when we visited the Basilique Sainte-Trinité. We were surprised to find ourselves in a painted church, as we understood most of those had been destroyed or defaced during the Revolution. We spent nealry an hour before sunday mass in the basilique and were welcomed by one of the parishioners who took time out from placing flowers to show us around the beautiful building After we left the church, we walked back to the ship, and were welcomed with flowers which we were encouraged to bring on board the ship.
