On 15 April 2009, the cruise ship Astor
of the German company Transocean Tours
has launched the 2009 season stops for cruise ships in Saint-Malo.
This ship of 176 m long then stopped at Rouen on 16 and then to Dover.
Saint-Malo is a stopover for repositioning cruises. Indeed, cruises are held in summer in the Nordic countries,
and winter in the warm waters of the Mediterranean or Caribbean. Stops in Saint-Malo have place around May and September,
during the migration
of cruise ships.
Saint-Malo receives annually about twenty ships for one day stops. In general, the vessels are too long to enter the port
and remain at anchor in the bay of Dinard. Passengers reach Saint-Malo with tenders
, small boats that are both shuttles and rescue boats.
The main attraction for tourists is the Mont-Saint-Michel.
