A lot of people say to skip the long drive to Paris, but I disagree if you have never been to Paris. Yes, it was frustrating to have so little time, but we were able to see the beautiful city, and we had a really good tour guide who provided interesting information on the history and local landmarks along the way, so it wasn't a boring ride at all. Our afternoon there let us get a sense of the city and helped us to decide whether we want to try to go back (a definite yes!) So if you have never been to Paris, definitely do the excursion.

Hopped on shuttle bus at port. (€4 return). Ticket bought in terminal. We decided to just wander about Le Havre and end up at beach. Walked from drop off to St Joseph's church which dominates Le Havre skyline. Going inside is a must. Absolutely stunning with sunlight pouring through the stain glass windows. From here short walk to beach area. Leisurely stroll on promenade. Then found nice restaurant and drank sangria before a lovely late lunch. Bus back to boat slightly worse for wear but happy.


For the majority of the passengers, Normandy was the reason we went on this cruise and it proved itself over and over. Every American who has the opportunity should go to Normandy Beaches. It stirs a deep feeling of patriotism and gratitude for what was done there. High point of the entire trip.
