Very emotional experience. Just took my breath away looking out at the row of white crosses and thinking about the horror of D-Day. Somber day but a place everyone should visit and really understand what happened that day. Looking at the water and the beaches and wondering how these brave troops ever made it up the cliffs - God was with them. Seeing the German bunkers, etc. was quite eery and frightening. I brought home some sand from Omah beach with a few little shells. I shall never forget! For many years I had wanted to visit Normandy and this wonderful Viking cruise was the way to do it. Read Less

Not enough time!
Sail Date: April 2015
Not enough time! It seems we spent more times in the bus than we did at the beaches or the cemetery. The guides were excellent. We ate as a group and an afterthought I would have eaten on my own to have more time in the town.

The highlight for me as a former history teacher. Well done and very emotional. Would have liked a little more time in Arromanche but the time at Omaha Beach and the cemetery on a beautiful Easter Sunday was a high point for me.

Very emotional visit to the American cemetery and seeing row after row of while grave marks. Omaha Beach was as emotional, the ware museum, the German bunkers, tunnels, guns, etc. This was a great tour.

A long but very good day. We thought the tour guide might have been a history professor he was so well informed. Learned so much. Couldn't believe how beautifully they handled all of us for a lovely lunch in one hour. We saw so much but the most emotional was the American War Cemetery. It is just so hard to imagine what happened on those beaches and so, so many young men perished or were wounded.Physically being there left a much greater impact than just seeing pictures. Read Less
