Our original intent was to see the Normandie Beaches and MT Saint Michel, but we decided to roll it all into one with a river cruise from Paris and the add on post extension. We are glad we did.
To see Paris correctly, one would need a week, but we still got to see the major sights and the Eiffel Tower lit up at night. The cruise also took us to incredible sights of castles, chateaus, gardens, and towns dating back hundreds if not thousands of years.
Service was great and the food was never substandard. We made new friends and the Captain, Jerome, besides being a great navigator, entertained us with a song.

Our cabin was a smaller suite and had plenty of room. The bathroom was adequate but they have been bigger on other Ama ships. There were a good number of outlets, but bring a converter if you are from the states. The television was all in French where some lines will give you at least one news channel and one movie channel in English, but between a full schedule of chateaus, eating, and going over photos taken that day, television was not a priority..
While Le Havre is just a big industrial harbor for your boat, it is from here that you would set out to see the Normandie D-Day beaches. They tailor their stops for Canadian, US, and British tourist as each beach was different. We visited the American Cemetery which was a solemn stop on an otherwise joyous trip, as you realize the sacrifice so many young men made. The people of Normandy have never forgotten that sacrifice.
