Saga Cruises welcome guests to the world of boutique cruising, complete with chauffeur service, all-balcony cabins, speciality dining, drinks and room service all included in the fare. Specialising in adult-only cruises, the impeccable attention to detail is what makes luxury cruises onboard Saga’s ships so popular, with the intimately sized vessels ensuring a truly unique experience everywhere from the Caribbean to the Mediterranean. Tailoring cruises to guests' tastes, from fine dining and excellent entertainment to attentive crew and varied shore excursions, Saga Cruises lets you make the most of your holiday from the moment you step onboard.
While many cruise lines charge for speciality dining, thanks to Saga Cruises, the main restaurants and alternative venues are all available free of charge, meaning that guests can enjoy the delicious cuisine without having to think about picking up the bill at the end of the meal.
Food onboard is prepared to the highest standard and with local ingredients handpicked by Saga Cruises chefs from markets all over the world, your taste-buds are in for a real treat. From superb game, meat and fish dishes to decadent desserts and perfectly paired wines, the expert team of chefs have free rein to prepare their own menus, meaning that no mealtime is the same thanks to the ever changing list of dishes.
In addition, all dining venues onboard have flexible seating, meaning that you can eat whenever you want or reserve the same table every evening. What's more, with a single sitting from 7-9pm, you'll never feel rushed to finish your dinner.
If you find yourself getting hungry at any other time, there are afternoon teas, late-night snacks and room service available throughout the day meaning you can indulge in the exquisite cuisine whenever you fancy.
Once night falls, the atmosphere onboard a Saga Cruises' ship is both elegant and lively. Each ship boasts a main show lounge where guests can take a seat and make the most of an ever-changing programme of vibrant entertainment. Featuring everything from live bands and classical recitals to cabaret performances, there's a show to suit everyone. Alternatively, why not sit back and relax with a drink in hand while you chat to other guests?
In addition, onboard Saga Sapphire, guests have the opportunity to enjoy live comedy at Cooper's Bar or alternative entertainment in the Drawing Room which is transformed into a late-night jazz club.
With its fleet of smaller, boutique ships, Saga Cruises can transport guests to some of the lesser visited ports around the worlds which are inaccessible for larger cruise lines, meaning you can explore these beautiful destinations without the crowds. Destinations include: the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Norway and the Middle East.
To help you make the most out of your time spent at each destination, an Explore Ashore Team is available on each ship to help you plan your trips off the ship. Brimming with local knowledge, this team will help you get exactly what you want out of your holiday at no extra charge.
On days that you're at sea, or if you simply decide to remain on the ship, Saga ensures there's no limit to the activities available to you. Enjoy a choice of an outdoor and indoor swimming pool, the amazing facilities of the Aqua Spa, spectacular entertainment in the lounges, extensive choice in sports and even a cinema with classic and latest releases on screen.
For those looking to further enrich their cruising experience, guest speakers regularly appear in the ship's lounge, giving guests the opportunity to learn more from experts about their field of interest.
Saga Ocean Cruises have partnered up with one of the nation's favourite entertainers: hootenanny host Jools Holland. The collaboration means that not only will Jools make appearances on selected sailings, but he has also been involved in the creation of an exciting onboard venue: The Club, debuting on Spirit of Discovery. This glamorous spot acts as a restaurant and entertainment space, think something along the lines of a 1950's London music hall. Here guests will be able to dine on exquisite dishes while being entertained by skilled singers and musicians.
