The 80th Anniversary of D-Day cruise features a custom itinerary emphasizing the land, sea, and air campaigns of World War II. Sail from Hamburg, which was systematically destroyed by an Allied bombing campaign in July 1943. Sail aboard the exquisite Seabourn Ovation towards Amsterdam and learn about the Dutch Resistance during the war.  A two-day stop in East Anglia, England, provides a special emphasis to the airmen and their ground support who helped make D-Day possible. Next, a stop in Dunkirk to learn more about Operation Dynamo.  Finally, land in Normandy for four days of touring  the rural countryside and beaches that became the backdrop for the largest amphibious invasion in history.

Special guest President and CEO Emeritus and Founder of The National WWII Museum, Gordon H. “Nick” Mueller, PhD, along with featured tour historians Donald L. Miller, Alexandra Richie, John McManus, and Keith Lowe provide a signature lecture series during the voyage. For a more robust experience, add a specially arranged pre-cruise tour in Hamburg or our post-cruise program in London.
