  Port Map

Inland from the central Atlantic coast of France, along Gironde Estuary, is situated the port of Bordeaux, famous for its superior wines. The new city is laid out with spacious squares, wide streets and imposing buildings while the old quarter features numerous wooden structures and narrow, crooked streets. Places of interest include several art museums, the 18th century arched gate Porte de Bourgogne, St Andre cathedral (consecrated 1006), the 12th century Romanesque basilica Sainte Croix church, Hôtel de Ville and 18th-century Grand Theatre.

Bordeaux (France) cruise port

Excursions outside the city of Bordeaux include Arcachon and the vineyards of Medoc and Saint Emilion. During the 12th century, King Louis VI's son married Eleanor, daughter to Duke William of Aquitaine. The dowry included southwestern portion of France. However, 15 years later, the marriage was dissolved, the dowry returned. Eleanor married the Duke of Normandy, who was crowned King Henry II of England. The 3 centuries that followed were filled with conflict between France and England. In the final battle of the Hundred Years War, the city of Bordeaux was won back for France. During the French Revolution, in Bordeaux were formed a group known as the Girondins. In 1773 they were accused of conspiracy against the revolution and executed.

In mid 2017, Port Bordeaux introduced a new cruise ship garbage collection system for all berthed vessels. The ship's garbage is now offloaded on a river barge and shipped upstream Garonne River to a waste processing plant. The new system replaced the previous garbage trucks, which resulted in less noise and pollution, as well as in easier and safer for the crew garbage handling, regardless of tide levels. The new system was implemented for both ocean and river cruises.


Highlights: City, Medoc wine area, Arcachon, St. Emilion
