Saga’s second new ship, Spirit of Adventure, will feature ‘bold and adventurous’ style plus a Nepalese speciality restaurant inspired by Gurkha heritage. London design agency AD Associates has been appointed to provide the overall design direction for Spirit of Adventure.
Spirit of Adventure which launches in summer 2020 will have a selection of speciality restaurants including restaurant Khukuri House, serving a modern take on traditional Nepalese cuisine inspired by Gurkha heritage.
The 999-passenger Spirit of Adventure will be the same shape and size as sister ship Spirit of Discovery (launching July 10, 2019).
David Pickett said:
We are delighted to be working with AD Associates, an agency that’s able to interpret and deliver on our commitment to high-quality authentic design and customer service. Thanks to her bold and striking interiors, Spirit of Adventure will be a true representation of the best of British innovation and flair.
Nicola Preece, AD Associates’ Design Director explained:
The approach is bold and adventurous, eclectic, and with carefully curated use of colour, offering variation, big-scale patterns and a layered palette.
The Living Room
The Living Room will feature a bar serving coffee, cakes and gelato during the day and cocktails at night. The architectural design will be strong and angular with a sculptural staircase and a full-height artwork as the backdrop.
Khukuri House which will serve authentic Nepalese cuisine inspired by Gurkha heritage. A vibrant colour palette will transfer to the furnishings and the artwork style of a region called madhubani, characterised by eye-catching geometrical patterns. Subtle room dividers have been influenced by Nepalese fabric dhaka while lighting pays homage to the traditional dress of Nepalese women.
This sophisticated space will provide an authentic Italian experience and design features include marble, brass-trimmed floor-to-ceiling wine cabinets, a four-colour tiled floor, up-lit screens and bold splashes of colour with red leather chairs.
Cabins will feature three main styles – one calming, echoing elements of the British countryside, the other luxurious, and the third will be reminiscent of sunset scenes.
