cruise ship at Quai de la Douane

Our cruise ship in September will be docking at Quai de la Douane; does anyone know if this is at the Bordeaux city docks or the Bassens docks? is it a convenient place from which one can walk to city areas?

1. Re: cruise ship at Quai de la Douane

The customs offices ("douane" in French) is along the waterfront in Bordeaux city. Although this stretch of the river road is named Quai Louis XVIII, the cruise company may be calling this Quai de la Douane. (The port road in Bassens is the Quai Francis Carriet.) So chances are good that you'll be docking a short walk across the road from the center of town.
