  • Great expo. Give a detailed impression of traveling on the big oceanliners since the beginning around 1840 till the disapeatance around 1960 due to concurrence with flying. Great scenes and soundeffects. After the cafetaria (on deck) is a short but strong movie and a original surprise in the end. :). Located in the concrete bunkers where the U-boats where stationed durin ww2. Probably best expo in St Nazaire.
  • On a cloudy day, we decided to visit Escal'Atlantic and were pleasantly surprised it was a very good exhibit that pleased and entertained the entire family.
  • extremely disappointed. I went there when j was a child and it was perfect but the changes makes it much worse. If c is a first come. If not go your way

  • Visit transports you into the world of cruise ships and the decorations are very well restored. We enjoyed the promenade deck and our 4 year old son asks to return. The price is quite high.
