Valor of Normandy

Date: May 7-18, 2019
Starting Price: $5,999
Trip Length: 10 nights
Trip: Paris to Paris
Cruise line: Scenic | Scenic Gem

The Seine River meanders through the heart of Paris and flows along some of the most renowned sites in northern France. This river has shaped and impacted the history of not only Europe but the world.

Join us as we commemorate the 75th Anniversary of D-Day along the historic Seine River. Glance back in time and take in the somber ambience of the Normandy Beaches and the iconic Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial. Honor the valor and sacrifice of the leaders, service members, and citizens whom many Americans consider “the Greatest Generation.” See history come alive at the D-Day Museum, view the frontlines, and retrace the steps where soldiers of allied nations fought valiantly for the liberation of Europe. From the romantic City of Lights and the historic Beaches of Normandy, to the former residence and gardens of Monet, the Seine River is lined with landmarks, history, and culture.

Embark on a Go Next-chartered all-inclusive, credit card-free luxury river cruise aboard the state-of-the-art Scenic Gem. This unique ship offers guests a more in-depth travel experience with longer times spent in historically significant harbors. Enjoy all these ports and more as we travel with a meticulously planned itinerary, unforgettable shore excursions, all onboard drinks—beer, wine, and premium spirits—and dining included. There is no better way to experience the Seine River region and immerse yourself in the history and culture that lines its banks.
