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.

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.

This deal is available but it won't hang around for long. Book as early as you can to get the best choice of dates and cheapest prices. I have been advised this deal is due to expire on Saturday 8th February 2020. If you think the deal is no longer available please let me know and I'll let everyone else know.

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All deals are subject to availability and can be withdrawn by the operator without prior notice.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.
