In collaboration with The National WWII Museum, join us as we sail from Hamburg with ports of call and a custom itinerary emphasizing the land, sea, and air campaigns of World War II. Travel in complete comfort aboard the exquisite Seabourn Ovation and be in Normandy for an unforgettable 80th Anniversary ceremony on June 6th, 2024.
A two-day stop in East Anglia, England, will give a special emphasis to the airmen and their ground support who helped make D-Day possible. Share in rich discussions with revered historians Donald L. Miller, Alexandra Richie, John McManus, and Keith Lowe.
Enjoy privileged access to top World War II sites and special invitations to events both on-board and ashore during this major commemoration.
For a more robust experience, add a specially arranged pre-cruise tour in Hamburg or post-cruise program in London.
