We had a most wonderful experience on our Vantage river cruise from Paris to Normandy last December. My husband is a WWII veteran and always wanted to see the famous beaches and memorial at Normandy. He is also a trumpet player and thought it would be a great honor to play Taps at the memorial. He carried his trumpet with us in the suitcase and approached our tour director with the request at the first opportunity. She not only obliged when the time came, but honored us further by asking me (his wife) to present the floral arrangement at the monument. I can’t tell you how touched and gratified we were to be able to honor the memory of those brave men in that beautiful way. Everything about the trip was outstanding – we will remember it as one of the great memories of our life.
