1944-2019 75th D-Day Anniversary aboard Regent The Seabourn Ovation

Aboard the Seabourn Ovation from May 29 to June 7, 2019, guests will follow the path of Germany’s conquest of Western Europe and the Allied efforts to wrest control back from the Nazis in a path of liberation. The tour culminates with the successful landings at Normandy on June 6, 1944, and the campaign that followed. Sailing down the North Sea and English Channel coast from Amsterdam to Normandy, the Ovation’s stops include:

  • Rotterdam, leveled by the Nazi blitz
  • Bruges and Ghent, where countless works of art were looted and tirelessly pursued by the “Monuments Men”
  • Dunkirk, where the miraculous evacuation of British, French, and other Allied forces took place in June 1940
  • Calais and its awesome remnants of Hitler’s Atlantic Wall
  • Dieppe, the scene of the heroic attempt by Canadian, British, and American forces to secure a lodgment in August 1942
  • Normandy, site of the largest amphibious assault in history, where we will spend four days and nights touring the landing areas, iconic landmarks, and off-the beaten-path sites that played a role in the Allied D-Day invasion
  • The cruise concludes with an overnight sailing across the English Channel to Dover
