An excursion to Canada's Juno Beach Centre and DDay Landing Beach is the highlight of your Oceania cruise call at the French port of Le Havre.
Oceania Shore Excursion: Canadian Landing Beaches
(LEH-012) 8.5 hours
After departing from the pier, take a leisurely drive toward Juno Beach, where the Canadian 3rd Infantry Division landed during the D-Day invasion on June 6, 1944. Besides the offshore reefs and shoals that impeded their landing, the Canadians faced mined beach obstacles and the entrenched German troops.
To understand details of the mission and the challenges of the landing, you will visit the Juno Beach Centre, a memorial to all the Canadians that served during World War II. By browsing documents, photographs, maps and artifacts, you will gain great insight into the Canadian war effort.
You will also watch a movie as part of an immersive experience that re-enacts the roles and sacrifices of the Canadian infantry soldiers during D-Day and the Battle of Normandy. You will also have the opportunity to see the remnants of a stronghold that was part of the German coastal defensive system known as the Atlantic Wall.
Following lunch, you will pause to reflect at the Bény-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery, the final resting place for more than 2,000 Canadian soldiers that lost their lives during the D-Day invasion. It is a sobering memorial, especially at monuments such as the freestanding Cross of Sacrifice in the center of the cemetery.
