We felt there wasn't too much in Le Havre so took the Bee Le Havre bus to Honfluer, well worth it. Difficult to get there by public transport and very expensive by taxi.

We walked into city center which was 20-30 minute walk from port. We pre-booked round-trip transportation with BeeLeHavre to Honfleur and walked around this charming fishing village for the afternoon.

Took the train into Paris. Don't bother booking 1st class seats. Getting on the train in Le Havre was easy. Coming back was bit of a zoo. Paris was awesome. We bought a metro day pass and traveled the Metro to most of our sights. Only negative is the 5 hour overall travel time. Taxis from the train station were slow in coming. Read Less

Although many negatives have been written about this city, we enjoyed just meandering around. We visited St. Joseph cathedral which was amazing. Ironically we were there on a Sunday and there was a marketplace open for shopping with MANY vendors. It was fun wandering through it and seeing all the different items, unusual to us Americans. We used the 16 Euro shuttle to get to town center and back. Read Less

Made it to Paris. It was tight, as the train ride is over 2 hours, but we managed to see Paris for five hours before heading back to the Gare St. Lazare and caught the train back to Le Havre, with 10 minutes before the 'all aboard' time. We left it all up in the air, not booking anything ahead of time since we weren't sure if we could make it. If you do choose to go to Paris on your own from Le Havre, be confident that you have all of the timing clear. Read Less

You will need the shuttle as it is not walkable, once there it is quite a nice town and there is a good shopping centre. We were lucky as there was a street market on but this is packed up by 1pm.

Walked around Le Havre in the rain. The ship didn't tell us that most businesses close for lunch for a couple of hours between 12 and 3 so missed a bunch of places. Found a nice toy store to get a puzzle for the last sea day and also got some great pasteries. It's a fairly easy walk from the ship but it would be nicer on a non-rainy day and also outside of the lunch time. Read Less

Not the cleanest town in France, I'm guessing, although not having been in any other French cities, I really don't know. Lots of places were closed. Had a long, uncomfortable wait in a driving rain with no shelter for a Princess shuttle. Many passenger complaints about that, especially as Princess charged us $16 each round-trip for the experience. At no other port was that the case. Nobody was happy. Read Less

the cruise director spoke against staying in La Havre but we were not inclined to take the 2 or 3 hour bus rides to Paris or Normandy. We enjoyed ourselves walking around LeHavre .

A very boring place. Their mall was nothing special and frankly the town has nothing more to offer.

Take shuttle into the center. If you want to go further afield then you would be best taking an excursion as there is little opportunity to go further on public transport easily.

We didn't take a cruise excursion here. We booked a Segway tour that I had booked directly with the company Mobilboard. It was a short walk into Le Havre town centre from the port (another busy industrial/freight/commercial/fishing port) with some nice sights along the walk. The Segway tour took us up to the beach (which is also within walking distance of the port) and across the town, which has some nice sightseeing points. Again I recommend researching in advance so you can organise your own activity here rather than spend 6 hours on a coach visiting Paris for a couple of hours! Read Less

Le Havre - We had planned to go to Honfleur but ended up just walking around town (after taking the provided bus). We had crepes and walked around... simple and we loved it.

Took the bus to the town and got on a city tour. Bumble Bee tours. $12 per person and excellent.
