Default Millenium April 21 ride share

Booked our own air and would like to find others interested in sharing transportation from Gatwick to the dock.

Also from the dock to Paris and back.

Thank you

If you want to go to Paris during the port of call in Le Havre, I strongly recommend booking a tour through the ship due to the distance involved. It's about two and a half hours each way from the pier in Le Havre to downtown Paris, whether you go by road or by train. If you go on your own and you miss the ship because you get delayed in traffic, you'll have to travel to the next port of call at your own expense and pay your own meals and lodging until the ship gets there. OTOH, if you are on one of the ship's excursions and the excursion is delayed, the ship will either await its return or make alternate arrangements to get you back aboard.

If you are familiar with Paris, your best option is the ship's "shore excursion" called "Paris on Your Own," which really is just bus transportation between the pier and the city's downtown area, with instructions on where to meet for the return trip.

If the thought of spending five hours on a bus or a train turns you off, consider going to Rouen instead. Rouen has many attractions, some of which have considerable historical significance, and a lot of the same fine shopping that you will find in Paris (including major Parisian department stores like Le Printemps).

And if your primary goal is to shop, you can do that right in Le Havre. IIRC, there's a decent mall to which you can walk from the pier that has all things French for sale.

I have used this person for transportation from Gatwick to Windsor.
I think he is from the Dover area.
Recommended. Use e-mail to get prices.
I think both e-mails get to Steve Knibbs

Hi. Just done the same exercise, but decided that Gatwick airport would not be v convenient so chose Southampton Airport instead, although this cost us a great deal more as it meant an "open-jaw" ticket instead of a round trip as we return to Gatwick from Barcelona. However in the course of research into ways of getting there found there is an excellent train service direct to Southampton from Gatwick on Gatwick airport site. Also coaches and buses dependent on when you arrive at Gatwick and have sufficient time to get down by road, about 3 hours I think. Train is definitely the best bet and can be booked online.
