Welcome to boutique cruising
In 2019, Saga will be leading a brand-new era of British cruising with the launch of Spirit of Discovery.
This boutique liner offers world-class fine dining, an array of entertainment options and some of the finest cabins afloat. It’s all wrapped up in a compact, sophisticated vessel. This is not your usual mega-liner, but a much more personal and intimate experience - with exceptional levels of service to match.
The ship’s inaugural season pulls out all the stops destination-wise, too. Expect excitement, adventure and culture: discover your fairy tale on a festive trip to New York and beyond, indulge in a feast for all the senses in gourmet Spain, or perhaps be moved by Norway’s natural wonders.
VIP door-to-door travel service included with every cruise
As with all of our holidays, every cruise in this brochure includes our award-winning VIP door-to-door travel service. This means that your holiday begins and ends at your own front door. With no mileage limits or restrictions, you can enjoy complete peace of mind from start to finish. See pages 10-11 for full details.
Setting sail for the very first time next year, Spirit of Discovery is gloriously open and airy. Soak up the sea views wherever you are on board, from the wraparound promenade to your very own balcony – a special feature with every single cabin. Luxurious, sleek and sophisticated, you could enjoy relaxing treatments in the spa, pre-show cocktails and a theatre performance in the auditorium, or perhaps a fine-dining experience in one of the speciality restaurants.
“I’m honoured and excited to be the very first Captain of Spirit of Discovery. Our first three voyages are already full, but you still have an exciting choice of itineraries throughout the inaugural season.” Captain Julian Burgess
