Departing cruise ship at Le Havre prior to the end of cruise

We will depart the Ruby Princess in 2014 in Le Havre rather than returning to London where the cruise terminates. We will proceed on our own to Paris where we will spend four days before flying back to the USA. There is conflicting information as to how to pass through French customs and immigration. Can we do this in Le Havre and is there a visa required? Princess said all that we need is our passports, but other threads on the web contradicts that. Any help would be appreciated.

Is Princess giving you permission to Debark there?

Do you stop at other ports in France?

Depends on your citizenship whether a VISA will be required or not

We have written permission from Princess to disembark ship at Le Havre... We will only stay in Paris and will fly from Paris directly home to the USA

Well, no visa is required of US citizens. Does that include you?

Thanks for asking this. We are doing the same in July 2014.

I am not doing this until May 2014... I have an app (rail Europe) on my iPad. Train schedules are not available yet, but they are supposed to notify me when they go in sale. As far as I can tell, the train is the best way to get from Le Havre to Paris.
