Sail Date: Jun 2023
Cabin: Classic Stateroom with Window

Always wanted to visit the Normandy beaches & we got to a day after the anniversary. Uniworld did it exceptionally well with the Cruise Manager organising 103 white roses for guest to lay at the memorial or on Omaha beach. Very emotional esp with a live bugler brought in - even though I am from NZ still was amazing to be apart of. Well planned and certainly well paced itinerary. The crew were welcoming and the Cruise Manager took care of anything we needed. The ship makes you feel as if you are right in France the whole time with Food and wine from the area. Really enjoyed the cities of Honfluer and the local guides we had were amazing - especially our guide in the Normandy Beaches, a very long day but didnt seem that way and the stories and the airborne museum were a highlight - recommend this Itinerary

Cabin Review

Classic Stateroom with Window

Perfect cabin - smaller window but I could count the hours I was in the room & didnt need a Balcony as spent most of the time out sightseeing on the roof top or in the public areas.
