Disembark your cruise ship and begin an enriching tour of significant D-Day locations around the picturesque region of Normandy. Greet your guide at Le Havre harbor and climb aboard a spacious, private vehicle destined for Pointe de Hoc, the historic site upon which Army Rangers stormed a cliff top battery.
Continue onto to Omaha Beach to hear moving accounts of courageous US soldiers who landed on the beach to attempt to conquer Nazi forces. Hear shocking numbers of casualties and then head to the Normandy American Cemetery to quietly reflect beside more than 9,000 American graves. Stroll the vast graveyard and read poignant epitaphs on each headstone before enriching your knowledge further in the visitor center.
Travel to the beautifully preserved Longues-sur-Mer battery, a German stronghold that boasts unrivalled ocean vistas from its cliff top perch. See original weapons that stand upon the cliff and hear of the guns’ pivotal role in the D-Day attacks.
Reflect during the relaxing journey back to Le Havre and bid your guide farewell on arrival at the cruise ship port.
