Saga Cruises have created something special. Designed exclusively for guests aged 50 and over, departing from the UK and with the promise of a relaxed, sociable, adults-only atmosphere, this is traditional cruising in contemporary style.
Saga’s boutique sister ships leave the crowds behind, carrying no more than 999 guests and small enough in stature to slip into pocket-sized ports the world over. Service is never anything but exceptional and while they may be small in size, a Saga cruise is big on value, with no need to worry about those little hidden extras; door-to-door chauffeur service, all gratuities, 24-hour room service, Wi-Fi, luggage porterage, freshly-prepared breakfasts, lunches and dinners, daily afternoon tea and unlimited selected teas and coffees in selected venues are all included in the price you pay.
Dining on Saga ships is a delight. Buffets on deck are the talk of the seas and evenings bring a new eatery for every day of the week. The Club by Jools is a highlight, Jools Holland curating the soundtrack to events that rival the world’s best supper clubs. Like all restaurants on Saga cruise ships, dinner here is included in your fare, so you can tuck into a New York Stripline Steak and follow it up with a Roast Rack of Lamb without worrying about the bill! Coast-to-Coast is another ever-popular spot, dishing up delectable seafood platters and Saga’s now infamous thrice-cooked chips. And for those who live by the motto that ‘variety is the spice of life’ reservations in East to West are a must. A Southern Thailand tiger prawn massaman curry is our star dish (don’t forget to save room for the buttery ‘Shahi Tukda’ brioche dessert…)
A fifth of Saga Cruise’s passengers are solo travellers and not only will you find a wide choice of solo cabins on each ship in the Saga fleet, you’ll also pay no single supplement. Best of all, you’re always assured a warm welcome if you’re travelling alone. Turn your hand to something new in a craft class, play to win in the pub quiz or unleash your competitive edge with a game of crazy golf, shuffleboard or tennis on deck.
