About Saga Cruises

The two ocean cruise ships, Saga Sapphire and brand new Spirit of Discovery, carry 720 and 999 passengers respectively and are able to sail into small ports which are often inaccessible to larger vessels. 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.

Saga's brand new ship, Spirit of Adventure, will take to the oceans in the summer of 2020. The luxury vessel is a sister ship to Spirit of Discovery and showcases two new speciality restaurants; Khukuri House, a Nepalese restaurant and the Amalfi restaurant, serving high-end Italian cuisine. Her inaugural season includes classic cruises to the fjords and the Mediterranean, short voyages around British and Continental shores and wonderful adventures in the Caribbean and the Canary Islands.

Saga offers a range of optional excursions which allow guests to tailor their holiday. Excursions are carefully planned to ensure they include the key sights and allow passengers to immerse themselves in the local cultures. Saga believes that variety is key and their excursions range from active hiking excursions to less strenuous coach tours; each 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. New in 2019, Saga Sapphire and Spirit of Discovery will have an Explore Ashore team on hand. This is an exciting new service led by a team of experts to help guests get the most out of their time on land, offering independent travel advice and research at no extra charge.

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.
