I go to Normandy often,the last time being late last year and was there three times during 2015 for a week each time,during which we spent every day driving to the various WW2 sites in the area. We never encountered one single invader while there,as Normandy is really thankfully quite far out of the way for them and they seem to mostly be wanting to get to the UK, hence them hanging around the port of Calais which is the closest point.
Of you are going on a river cruise I doubt even more that you will encounter any.
I really don't think you'll encounter any of them in Normandy.
PS: in your post you refer to "Normandy Beach" but Normandy has a very long coastline so I'm assuming you meant the D-Day sites from Le Havre through to Cherbourg. Either way,I doubt you'll even see any of them.Edited: 07 March 2016, 14:38
<<We never encountered one single invader>>
There are many words to describe the Syrian migrants/refugees but they are not "invaders".
there are many way to describe post number one -- the first to mind are "sarcasm" and "satire"
Whichever way you look at it, a permanent state of "tongue in cheek" gives you a rather ugly appearance.
I doubt you will meet any Syrians but you may encounter some English refugees coming the other way after June's EU referendum.
so does trying to walk with a permanent insertion.
Your question requires some serious consideration. Please explain why you're fearful that Syrian migrants would disrupt your cruise. Have you read about an influx of Syrian migrants in the Normandy region? Are you concerned that passengers will not be able to leave the ship? Are you fearful of physical attacks? Are you concerned that crowds of the immigrants will prevent you from following a tour guide or from simply walking around?
If you want serious answers, please provide more information.
<<so does trying to walk with a permanent insertion>>
Poor you, that sounds painful.
Even if you met some Syrian immigrants what difference would it make?
Isn't it possible that the original poster's question about "disruptions" is sincere and comes from a lack of knowledge? I will admit that I found the question disturbing when I first read it, then decided to set aside my feelings and that the post should receive a serious answer. She will probably not return to the forum and explain her question.
