|Portsmouth - 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.

23 Oct 2019Could be better!
Unfortunately, they had the close the children area but did not put anything in place to replace this, like added entertainment! We specifically chose the ferry so children could play, and they instead spent the day watching tv.. Also the entertainement was really poor! It looks like the actors employed had no choice into what they could do and just followed a program, which they did not enjoy! For goodness sake, please give them freedom with the choice of activities! Make our journey fun!
