With two staff to every three passengers, our standard of service is exceptionally high

With first-class service, fine dining, opulent surroundings, top entertainment and port of calls at an array of exciting destinations, our cruises evoke that ‘holiday of a lifetime’ feeling every step of the way. Exclusively for the over 50s, your cruise is a tailor-made experience ideal for meeting likeminded people and making new friends – whether travelling accompanied or solo.

All you have to do is choose between taking in sumptuous sunsets at sea from the chic, contemporary comfort of Saga Sapphire or the more intimate and informal Saga Pearl II. Either way, you’ll enjoy true timeless traditions filled with endless elegance, magic and charm.

In a cruise market awash with options, there’s plenty to make us stand out. We’re extremely proud of our small, intimate ships, exemplary services and loyal, committed staff – all representing a spirit of excellence that’s won us multiple awards across the board. 

Some of our recent accolades include being named as the Best Small and Mid Ship Cruise Line at the British Travel Awards 2016, Favourite Ocean Cruise Line and Best Value for Money Cruise Line at the Wave Awards, and Favourite Ocean Cruise Company at the Globe Travel Awards.

Here are just some of the reasons why a Saga cruise provides such an incredible, unique experience…

Great value

What's included on a Saga cruise

Unlike many other cruise companies, there are no gratuities or service charges asked of guests. Many other inclusions such as free Wi-Fi, complimentary wine with dinner and no supplements to dine at speciality restaurants separate us from the competition.

Our ships

Our ships

A home away from home, our stylish cruise ships feature plenty of amenities in a cosy, easy-to-navigate layout. Besides creating a more intimate atmosphere, this has the added benefit of being able to sail right into the heart of places – accessing areas beyond the reach of larger liners.

Chauffeur transfers

Our chauffeur service

To ensure pure comfort and convenience in transit, you’ll be chauffeur driven to and from the port (up to 250 miles each way).

Personalised service

Award winning service and style

From the cheerful, friendly chauffeurs to the nothing-is-too-much-trouble cabin crew, a warm welcome and personalised service is extended to all of our guests.

Our guarantees

Our guarantees

We’ve spent more than 60 years fine-tuning how to be the perfect hosts, so if you don’t love your first Saga cruise, we’ll refund your fare!

Plus, for the ultimate peace of mind when booking a Saga cruise, we pass on the value of any savings or special offers applied later on (for discounted holiday in the same package and under the same terms and conditions).

This extra value could be received as on-board credit, a cabin upgrade and suchlike.

So much to discover on shore

Our wide range of optional excursions are expertly planned and there's a choice in every port - some take in the must-see sights while others offer more unusual experiences or take you to hidden gems. Plus, we offer a free shuttle bus service to the nearest town or city centre for those wishing to travel independently.

Safety and security a priority

We go to great lengths to keep our guests safe and secure while travelling with us. We consider up-to-date Foreign and Commonwealth Office advice when designing our itineraries and keep our on-ship security solid with a manned pass scanning system at all entry points.

There’s a reason many of our first-time cruise customers return: life on board with Saga is fabulous in every way! So for those days at sea, a wonderful world of opportunities awaits you. The brilliant thing is, you’re completely in control of your itinerary – and we make sure our daily programme of events has something to suit everyone. Whether you want to get active, socialise, learn a new skill or simply relax, you’re able to pick and choose.

Everything is prepared fresh by our talented team of chefs

Dining options

Fine dining, tantalising buffets and refined afternoon teas are just some of the culinary experiences to expect aboard your Saga cruise.

Everything is prepared fresh, from local flavours served by our Executive Chefs to deck barbecues and live cookery demos from celebrity chefs. All of this comes together to create a boutique experience that showcases the best of cruising on a small ship.

Plus, we don’t charge extra if you wish to dine at our speciality restaurant, East to West, aboard Saga Sapphire.


Unwind in pure bliss with a visit to the cruise spa

Spa and leisure facilities

State-of-the-art gym facilities and fitness classes make it easy to stay on top of your keep-fit regime while away. Other options include swimming, deck walks and traditional deck games.

Or to unwind in pure bliss, a visit to the cruise spa for a massage or beautifying treatment is highly recommended.


Our versatile daily events diary has something to suit every mood

Plenty to do

From whale watching and bird watching with experts to creative classes and fun social events for mingling such as cocktail parties, deck barbecues and jazz evenings, our versatile daily events diary has something to suit every mood.

When a peaceful time out is being sought, both ships feature sumptuous lounge areas ideal for curling up with a good book, browsing the web using the free Wi-Fi or simply taking in beautiful scenery from the deck.


Our cabins are sumptuously decorated with comfort and style in mind

Comfortable cabins

Sumptuously decorated with comfort and style in mind, the air-conditioned en-suite accommodation provides a relaxing sanctuary after a busy day aboard or onshore.

Cabins feature fresh fruit and water, complimentary luxury toiletries, fluffy bathrobes, a free in-cabin film channel and a turndown service. There’s also 24-hour room service so you’re free to dine in when preferred.
