Itinerary includes: Lisbon, Portugal; Leixões (Porto), Portugal; St. Peter Port, Guernsey, Channel Islands; Cherbourg (D-Day Landing Beaches), France; Honfleur, France; Oostende, Belgium; Amsterdam, Netherlands (overnight); Greenwich (London), United Kingdom (overnight).
Your voyage begins in Lisbon, one of the oldest cities in the world. But your history lesson only begins there.You will sail to the historic beaches and villages of Normandy on this voyage, but there are enchanting places for non-WW2 buffs to explore as well.
In the beautiful harbor city of St. Peter Port in Guernsey, La Vallette Underground Military Museum is as fascinating as it sounds. For a different kind of history, see Hauteville House, where Victor Hugo lived while here. Or walk through the wonderful Candie Gardens. A late stay means time for all.
In Cherbourg, the Musée de la Libération holds uniforms, photographs, maps, flags and excellent views of the sea on the hill above the town. The charming port of Honfleur is next, where you can stroll around the old harbor and visit the incredible wooden Church of Saint-Catherine. Then visit the poignant American Cemetery and Memorial, which overlooks Omaha Beach.
Finally, if your sea legs will allow, bicycle around the canals of Amsterdam where Rembrandt and Van Gogh likely did the same. View the gabled houses by their upside-down reflections in the canals, visit countless museums, festivals, the Anne Frank House, and, of course, the famed Red Light District.
Your voyage concludes with a memorable trip into the city of London, allowing you to make some history of your own as the ship moors just downriver from the famous Tower Bridge.
