June 6, 2019 marks the 75th anniversary of D-Day landings by Allied Forces as part of World War II's Operation Overlord. On this specially timed program, arrive in France for D-Day, June 6, and visit Omaha Beach or Caen to observe the anniversary before boarding AmaLyra for a seven-night cruise along the Seine River. Along the way, trace the rich cultural history of France with visits to Jumièges Abbey, the new Joan of Arc Historial in Rouen, and Claude Monet's home in Giverny. In Compiègne, see where the French signed a truce with the Germans in 1940 or walk in the footsteps of America's Founding Fathers at the Château de Chantilly. Our journey concludes with an afternoon in magical Paris.

An optional Normandy prelude and an optional Versailles postlude are offered.
