About Caen

Caen is the capital of Lower Normandy and lays between two rivers the Orne and the Odon. Caen was one of the many cities to suffer the ill-effects of World War II.

The city was bombed on D-Day and is said to have burned for a week before being liberated. The damage was on a grand scale and the only vestiges of the past to remain were the ramparts of the Chateau and the two great abbeys. These were built by William the Conqueror when he founded the City in the 11th Century.

The beaches are the sites of D-Day landings and some of the best to visit are Mulberry Harbour at Arromanches (northeast of Bayeux) and Pointe du Hoc on Omaha Beach. Caen has excellent shopping facilities and many other historic places to visit.

    Good crossing but damaged seats
    • This well appointed ferry and its excellent staff made for an enjoyable experience. However, the reclining seats need attention, as one of the two allocated to us for the return crossing was damaged and the only two others available also both had faults. The dining room experience on both crossings was exceptional

    D Day trip 6 - 7 June
    • Outbound on a beautiful calm sunny day 6 June was a pleasure cruise .The return the following night 7-8 June was extremely uncomfortable due the effect of storm force Miguel. High winds and a rolling but not breaking sea coupled with an 8 hour 45 slow transit (6 hours only outbound) was very uncomfortable - rocking and rolling.Whilst I understand the need to keep to an 0645 arrival the snail pace of the ship simply gave a wallowing ride. I would have thought a speedier transit would have given a smoother ride and if ahead of schedule then hold off in the lee of the land until landing approach time . Not customer friendly.
