I always wanted to go to Normandy beach being a veteran and I was very impressed even though it was cold in December. I also enjoyed being docked near the Eiffel tower and the city of lights. The excursions were interesting and very enjoyable. Overall a great experience. Went to a market and went to the town where Vincent Van Gooh painted many of his pictures and to his grave and the room he lived in. Went to Napoleon's mansion where many interesting things were on display. The dining was excellent and the staff was very helpful and made me feel right at home. Social director was very helpful and explained how our day was planned out so we would understand what was to take place. I got to know many of the passengers on board and still keep in contact with a few of them. I would recommend this trip to anyone looking for a great vacation.
