Arena Travel's Voyage of Remembrance

Voyage of Remembrance aboard Boudicca

 

Many of you will know The River Cruise Line and the range of cruise itineraries that we offer. But, did you know that we are part of the Arena Travel Group and that we were the chosen tour operator of The Royal British Legion in the organisation of the D-Day 75th Anniversary Voyage of Remembrance?

With the help of Fred Olsen, we were able to charter their 800 berth ship, the MV Boudicca, for this momentous journey, which saw us sailing from Dover to Dunkirk, via Poole, Portsmouth and Normandy. On this voyage we were joined by 240 veterans, along with their family members and travel companions.

 

The highlight of the voyage, was not only the honour of transporting these brave men, who helped in the fight for our future, back to the place they so selflessly went 75 years ago, but also being able to join them in the commemorative ceremonies, in both Portsmouth and Normandy.

 

We are proud and honoured to have been involved in the organisation of such a poignant and emotional event and we hope to share our special memories from this journey very soon.
