Saga Cruises has today announced their new cruise ship will be named Spirit of Discovery. The new ship will carry less than 1,000 passengers, retaining the intimacy and personal touch for which Saga is renowned and will have more than 100 cabins for solo travellers, 20 per cent of the ships capacity.
Saga Cruises has released artist’s impressions of its new ship which will be launched in summer 2019. The thoughts and recommendations of passengers have been incorporated into the design and the sleek ship will carry fewer than 1,000 passengers and feature 540 all-balcony cabins.
Cabins on Saga’s river cruise which offers top seats for a thrilling André Rieu concert in Cologne, Germany, have been snapped up so quickly that another sailing has been released. Saga guests can now book the ‘Waltzes of André Rieu and the Rhine’ which departs on March 10th, 2017 and enjoy Category One seats in the Lanxess Arena to watch superstar violinist André Rieu conduct his 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra.
Responding to increasing demand from discerning independent travellers, Saga is leading the way with the introduction of a third solo river cruises in as many months. The ‘Springtime Colours of the Rhine’ sails on March 28th, 2017 with options to travel by air, Eurostar or coach.
Saga’s first river cruise for solo passengers sold out so quickly that a second all-inclusive sailing has been created to meet demand. The Saga-exclusive Douro Discovery cruise on November 3rd, 2016, offers single travellers the opportunity to admire beautiful landscapes and quaint towns on a sailing through Portugal and Spain.
Saga has added four new river cruises to its 2016 programme with two ships exclusively hosting Saga guests. Single cabins come at no extra cost, *subject to availability, and there is a choice of UK regional departures, including Eurostar.
Saga Cruises has today announced that Saga Ruby, the last cruise ship built in the UK, will be retired from the Saga fleet at the beginning of 2014.
