A voyage of commemoration
Join ‘Discovery’ on this special cruise commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Normandy Landings on D-Day as the Allies launched their campaign to liberate Western Europe. Codenamed ‘Operation Overlord’, the event on 6th June 1944 was to change the course of history. Remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice and visit some of the places associated with a conflict whose astounding success was to go down in military history.
After a leisurely day at sea you’ll awake in the picturesque town of Honfleur. From here you might choose to visit Pegasus Bridge, captured by the men of the 6th British Airborne division led by Major John Howard. The missions for the ‘Red Berets’ on 6th June 1944 are presented in the fascinating Pegasus Bridge Museum. With its bustling waterfront of grey and white stone buildings interrupted by colourfully painted houses, charming St. Peter Port is the capital of Guernsey. Venture further and discover the beautiful island, which lies close to the French coast. Fortifications, an underground military hospital and the Occupation Museum feature in an optional tour exploring the island’s Second World War history. Occupied by the Germans, Guernsey was finally liberated some eleven months after the Normandy Landings. A final call is made in Cherbourg with the option to visit the Allied landing areas and the D-Day Museum at Arromanches, overlooking the remains of the famous Mulberry Harbour. On 6th June 2014, the 70th anniversary of D-Day, Discovery will cruise off the coast in Normandy. A ceremony will be held on board to remember all those who lost their life that day and in the tragedy of war.

Admire the Georgian architecture of Merrion Square, St Stephen’s Green and Trinity College or drive out of the city to Powerscourt House at the foot of the Wicklow Mountains, celebrated for its Italianate gardens. Continuing north, enjoy a scenic cruise along the Firth of Clyde passing the Isle of Arran, before Minerva anchors in Holy Loch. Drive through
spectacular countryside to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park or visit Inveraray Castle & Garden, the beautiful ancestral home of the Duke of Argyll, Chief of the Clan Campbell, standing on the shores of Loch Fyne.
Built on a peninsula in Northern Ireland, the seaside town of Portrush is the gateway to the dramatic Antrim Coast and Giant’s Causeway.
Marvel at the hexagonal basalt columns of the headland, formed by volcanic eruptions more than 60 million years ago, and learn about the legend of the Irish giant, Finn MacCool. The west coast of Ireland is known for its unsurpassed beauty and wild drama with some of Ireland’s finest scenery in County Donegal. From the fishing port of Killybegs, visit the Glencolumcille Folk Museum to gain an insight into everyday life of past centuries, while a visit to Donegal town, framed by the Blue Stack Mountains and historically the family seat of the O’Donnells, may appeal.
