Normandy was a stop on our NCL cruise. I'll admit it was not on my bucket list, but I'm thankful we took a tour there. I was not born yet, but now I understand so much about the history involved and how crucial it was and still is important to those living in France.
Go through the museum first to acquaint yourself with the event. You can actually walk on Utah & Omaha beach. Lastly visit the American Cemetary and understand how war takes our young.
