At a Glance

Relive a turning point in history and its lasting effects on Europe on an insightful learning adventure from Copenhagen to London. Sailing from Denmark to the Netherlands, France to England, watch the past come to life during expert-led field trips to battle sites, occupied towns and rebuilt cities. Unlike most cruise ships that are briefly in port, you’ll have overnight stays in many locations, as well as hotel nights in Copenhagen and London — the perfect opportunity for deeper exploration. Discover the people, places and events that shaped an important chapter in history aboard our favorite ship.

Choose Your Pace
This program offers two activity levels to choose from on every departure date: one that has less walking and fewer stairs and another at a more active pace.

  • Set off to discover the highlights of Copenhagen, from the City Hall and the Tivoli Gardens to the Nyhavn harbor and the fairy-tale Rosenborg Castle.
  • Pay your respects during a visit to one of the D-Day invasion sites on the beaches of Normandy.
  • Enjoy the unique architecture of historic Honfleur during a guided city exploration, followed by a visit to the beautiful white cliffs of Etretat, famously painted by Courbet and Monet.
  • Sail exclusively with shipmates who are all Road Scholar participants, as dedicated to learning as you are.

General Notes

We’ll have up to 350 Road Scholar participants on the ship, divided into groups of 35 for shore excursions. Please note roommate matching is available in categories F, H and L.
