Sea

Cruise Ship

Cruise ships dock in central Roseau, at Woodbridge Bay north of Roseau, and at Cabrits, north of Portsmouth. Downtown Roseau and popular places such as Champagne Reef and Trafalgar Falls get very busy when those giant vessels are in port. Independent travelers wishing to avoid the crowds might want to check the cruise-ship schedule (eg at www.cruisetimetables.com/cruises-to-roseau-dominica.html) to plan their itinerary accordingly.

Ferry

L’Express des Îles connects Roseau several times weekly on 300-seater catamarans with the following nearby islands. Flexible tickets cost €10 more each way; children under two years pay a flat €39.
