Stranded in Le Havre

Jump to last reply

The best plans somehow can get screwed up. Traveling on a transatlantic Princess cruise, we had made special arrangements to depart the ship in Le Havre prior to the itinerary termination in London the following day. THE PLAN: take the train from Le Havre to Paris spending three days in Paris and fly back to USA from Paris. THE PROBLEM: the are no direct trains running on Saturday May 10, 2014 into Paris with the exception of trains leaving at 7:50 AM. In fact, according to Rail Europe, the ONLY trains into Paris that day leave at 7:50 AM.(working on the train tracks). The ship does not arrive until 7AM and does not give us enough time to clear France's customs and immigration in time to take a 7:50 AM train. NEW PLAN: we will book an excursion into Paris with Princess cruises, throw our luggage on the bus, get off in Paris and take a taxi to the hotel. NEW PROBLEM: Princess says "no way" because the tour leaves early in the morning and we have to clear customs, we would hold up the excursions plus anyone on the excursion MUST return to the ship. OK, I am now stranded in Le Havre unless I find a driver to take my wife and myself into Paris. DOES ANYONE KNOW A RELIABLE COMPANY THE CAN TAKE US FROM LE HAVRE TO PARIS. Help!!!!
