Le Havre sets new one day record for cruise visitors

Le Havre sets new one day record for cruise visitors
Le Havre welcomed a record 11,434 cruise visitors in one day Tuesday, when four ships called at the French Atlantic port: Celebrity Infinity, Costa neoRomantica, AIDAsol and Costa Luminosa.

Last year, Le Havre hosted four cruise ships simultaneously (Astor, Empress, MSC Magnifica and Celebrity Infinity) on September 19, 2013 bringing 9,408 passengers and crew to the city.

With another ‘quadruple’ day of visiting ships scheduled for next week, ‘we wonder if today’s record will be beaten on September 16?’ remarked Valerie Conan, cruise director of Le Havre’s Tourist Office.
