The town of Cherbourg is the second largest in the Normandy region and has always been an important naval base from the Napoleonic times. It is one of the largest artificial harbours in the world serving as a major commercial, fishing and military port.
Normandy boasts of a spectacular rugged coastline dotted with many beautiful sandy beaches. Although not the prettiest of the towns of Normandy, Cherbourg has an important historic past and a number of attractions like the Fort du Roule from the top of which there is a panoramic view of the city, Cité de la Mer (an Aquarium) , a Renaissance style Ravalet Château and many war memorials commemorating the Second World War.
Life in Cherbourg revolves around its seafaring traditions and there are many local and hypermarkets in and around the town for those who want to stock up. During the summer, various festivals are held in the Plage Verte Park and there are many good restaurants, bars and cafés at the portside and in the town itself.
The cosmopolitan and lively Irish capital should be a must on anybody's European itenerary. Like any European capital it would be impossible to describe all there is to see and do.
The number one attraction is the Guinness Storehouse - the home of the "The Black Stuff" Dublin's world famous dry stout. Other attractions include St Patrick's cathedral - what would Ireland be without St Paddy after all? The National Gallery, Botanic Gardens, the National Acquatic Centre, Dublin Zoo, the list is almost endless.
However, when you leave Dublin, what you'll remember above all else is the atmposphere: the small pubs filled with dancing and music and perhaps above all else the friendliness of the locals.

We enjoyed our crossing. Everything was as expected. On board food very expensive and quality not great. Would certainly travel this route again.

Very kind and helpful staff. Only a restaurant inside for 19hs and no wifi connection at rooms, but the rest was very good.
