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.

    Things to do on board
    • There was plenty to do. I took away gadgets from the children and they happily played table tennis and the younger child went to see the children's entertainer. There is also a cinema and the journey goes quickly because of the choices.

    Stress free journey
    • If you're thinking of traveling to France buy car ect. then there is no better way than via Brittany Ferries. It could not be simpler either book on line or contact by telephone. The ferries are well equipped with bars restaurants to suit all tastes and are reasonably priced too. My wife and I opted for an overnight crossing that takes about eight hours so that we arrived about 7.30 am. Perfect for the long drive ahead as you are refreshed after a good nights sleep in a very comfortable cabin. I have traveled on most routes to France so if there is any readers of this revue that has not ventured beyond uk shores I would urge you to give it a go. Opt for Brittany Ferries you won't go wrong.

    Wine trip
    • Loading was easy, although inevitably there was time spent queuing on the quay side. Crossings were calm and on time. Disembarkation quick and easy, although some delays at immigration (both in France and in England)

    Easy way to travel
    • This is an easy way to travel. If I had to make any negative comment it would be that bunk beds are not that easy when You are older. Other than that, a great way to travel.
