The two ocean cruise ships, Saga Sapphire and Saga Pearl II, carrying 720 and 449 passengers respectively, are able to sail into small ports, inaccessible to larger vessels, resulting in unique itineraries. There is always a high staff to guest ratio on board which means an exceptionally high standard of service and attention to detail is guaranteed.
Excursions are optional allowing guests to tailor their holiday. They are carefully planned to ensure they include the key sights and allow passengers to immerse themselves in the local cultures. Variety is key, from active hiking excursions to less strenuous coach tours, and every excursion is led by an experienced English-speaking guide. In addition, Saga offers a complimentary shuttle bus service from the ship to the city or town centre in most ports.
Saga's world-class service starts before you get on board the ship with a complimentary chauffeur service available to guests living with 250 miles of the UK departure port, either Dover or Southampton. Free car parking is offered at the port if customers prefer to drive themselves, whilst regional flights are also available, depending upon location.
A Saga cruise can be booked in advance with confidence. The earlier guests book, the higher the chance of securing a greater discount of up to 35%. As the cabins are sold, the discount decreases. If a price is ever reduced after booking or a new special offer is added, the value of the saving is passed back to the customer. Guests who are new to Saga Cruising will also receive up to £600 per person credit to spend onboard and returning customers receive a past-passenger loyalty saving.
