April 29th 2016, Day 13 – Le Havre
We arrived in Le Havre on a wet and miserable looking morning. That would be about right, heading closer to the UK and the pretty average weather we often have. Anyway, never mind, let’s make the most of it.
After watching us cruise into port and dock I then watched a huge container ship pass us by, I wonder how many of those shipping containers these can carry? Here you can see they are laid 17 across and 8 high plus probably more below what we can see.
I would want to see them in a storm!!
Today’s paper was a little lighter than usual on things going on, as you’d expect while in port, but still there were things to do if you chose to stay aboard. We did consider it, especially as the cold and wet day was not inviting.
Breakfast in the Main dining room on Celebrity Eclipse
I left Moni to sleep in a bit and had breakfast in the MDR for the first time this cruise. It was fine, but I find the buffet just that bit more exciting.
I had my half grapefruit and an omelette a pot of tea and some juice.
I had a coffee in the cafe and as you can see it was very quiet, that’s because many passengers were going on tours and heading out very soon. And there goes Mickey leading a tour off the ship to the visit the Beaches of Normandy.
Once Moni was up and about we decided to venture off and check take a glimpse of Le Havre. Take a look at what we saw today in Le Havre by clicking the link above.
So that was our day in Le Havre, did you read it? Make sure you check it out.
Once back at the ship we knew lunch would be over and even the Mast Grill was closed, so we had to settle for some afternoon tea, I did manage to grab a burger last-minute.
Afternoon tea and colourful desserts
The sun did make another brief appearance this evening just as we were leaving port.
We enjoyed a very good coffee and a couple of balls of gelato as we sailed away from Le Havre.
And that was our day in Le Havre. After departing at 8.30pm I guess we just meandered around in the English channel until the early hours before making our way in to Southampton waters ready for debarkation day.
We had dinner from the buffet tonight as it’s always easier for us having packed our suitcases of our dinner clothing ready for tomorrow’s farewell.
