Spirit of Discovery and Spirit of Adventure will operate an all-inclusive policy with all house spirits, wine, beer and soft drinks included.
Spirit of Discovery, the first of Saga’s two new ships, will become all-inclusive in January 2020, six months after entering into service.
Spirit of Adventure will be all-inclusive when she joins the fleet in August 2020.
Saga already includes all gratuities, a UK transfer service and free wi-fi on board on its cruises and the decision to go all-inclusive came about following customer demand and feedback.
Chief operating office Nigel Blanks said that the decision to go all-inclusive would “reaffirm Saga’s position as a niche luxury cruise operator”.
Spirit of Discovery and Spirit of Adventure are the only boutique small ships being built with British market in mind. I firmly believe that our decision to move to all-inclusive cruising will not only sit well alongside our ‘boutique cruising’ proposition, it will also distance us further from the competition whilst giving those that choose to cruise with us an even more exclusive and value for money experience.
The 999-passenger Spirit of Discovery will replace Saga Pearl II in July 2019.
Spirit of Adventure is planned to enter service in August 2020, replacing Saga Sapphire.
