With a fleet of just two ships to focus on Saga has earned many accolades for its on-board service.
Saga Cruises fleet
Saga operates just two cruise ships - Saga Sapphire and Saga Pearl II. Saga Sapphire is the larger of the two but with a capacity of just 720 passengers it will never feel crowded or busy. Sail on Saga Pearl II and it will feel even more exclusive thanks to a maximum capacity of only 449 passengers.
In Summer 2019, Spirit of Discovery will launch and join the fleet. This brand new ship will become the flagship for Saga Cruises and will introduce a new cruising experience for the line. The ship will carry 999 passengers (based on double occupancy) and every cabin will have a balcony. In Summer 2020, brand new sister ship Spirit of Adventure will join the fleet.
The two ships sail on short- to -mid-length voyages around Northern Europe, Mediterranean, Canary Islands, the Norwegian Fjords, the Arctic Circle and the Baltic. Longer voyages take in ports around the Caribbean, America, and Canada. Both ships sail from Dover, Portsmouth, and Southampton.

The dull-but-necessary small print
All deals are subject to availability and can be withdrawn by the operator without prior notice. The lead-in prices (otherwise known as the 'from' prices) are, unless otherwise stated above, based on two adults sharing the cheapest available cabin on the cheapest available date. Typically the best prices are available at the start of any promotion period so the earlier you book the better choice of sailing dates and cabin availability you should have. Mid-week sail dates are likely to be cheaper than weekend sail dates.
