D-Day Anniversary

Reflect on the importance of D-Day, an operation that turned the tide of WWII, as you sail to Britain’s hidden gems. You begin your voyage in Portsmouth, which was the main departure point for military and naval units as they headed towards Sword Beach in 1944. Just like the troops, you will sail towards the Normandy beaches and anchor off them before visiting the pretty fishing town of Honfleur. You will then visit some notable islands, including the Isles of Scilly, the Isle of Anglesey, and the Orkney Isles, as well as Ireland’s Cobh for vibrant Cork.

CRUISE HIGHLIGHTS

Anglesey, UK

Wales’s island of Anglesey is steeped in both ancient history and coastal beauty. It is accessed by the Menai Suspension Bridge, built in 1826 and still used today to connect the mainland to Menai Town. Other highlights include the 18th-century Plas Newydd House and Gardens and the medieval town of Beaumaris which features an enchanting castle and moat.

Cobh for Cork, Ireland

Known as Ireland’s second city, Cork is both a bustling city and a coastal gem. Take a stroll down its colourful streets where traditional Irish music can often be heard, or visit some of the many attractions such as Blarney Castle, Finn Bare’s Cathedral and the English market that sells a variety of local produce.

Normandy beaches, France

The five Normandy beaches, code-named Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword, hold the utmost significance for D-Day. They were the sites of the highly coordinated invasion on 6 June 1944 of almost 133,000 troops from eight allied countries that sought to free France from German occupation in WWII. Anchoring off these sites allows you to reflect on this fateful day exactly 80 years later.
