What to Expect on an All-Inclusive Saga Cruise

In the words of Bob Marley, you don’t worry about a thing when you cruise all inclusive. Instead, relax as you sail from one glorious destination to another, sipping cocktails, indulging in afternoon tea, sharing the day’s experiences with your friends in the bar and dining in a different restaurant every night… all without worrying about the bill.

Sailing all-inclusive makes budgeting so much easier, with no hidden extras to catch you by surprise.

It’s the cherry on the top of a long list of inclusions that Saga offers as standard. You really do receive so much in the price when you sail aboard Spirit of Discovery and Spirit of Adventure.

All-inclusive cruises: what you need to know

Off to a perfect start!

You’re in good hands when you sail with Saga, as we’ll chauffeur you conveniently to the port and home again.

Alternatively, you can choose from free car parking or a flight from your local airport, subject to availability. So you won’t have to get bogged down with complicated train prices and timetables, expensive taxis or parking costs.

Everything is taken care of, including the porterage of your luggage to your cabin.

Treat yourself… you know you want to!

Fine dining and formal evenings are a great all-inclusive cruising tradition, so why not indulge in the best – especially when this means chef-prepared breakfasts, delicious lunches and lavish dinners, daily afternoon tea, and unlimited tea and coffee.

With so much choice on offer, whether you are looking for light bite or a perfectly seared steak, you’re sure to experience delicious food sourced locally from your ports of call.

So much to see and do

From North America to the North Cape, the Canaries to the Caribbean, you can visit so many exciting places on board a Saga cruise. As well as iconic cities like New York, Lisbon, Athens and Barcelona, you can discover the beauty of lesser-known ports such as Syracuse, Skjolden and Narsarsuaq.

While exploring new destinations is a big part of cruising, it’s just half of the fun. Your time spent on board can be equally as enjoyable.

You can look forward to a huge diversity of live music and entertainment, a full programme of lectures and demonstrations, and much more. Plus, with the state-of-the-art facilities aboard our sister ships, you can experience small-ship luxuries every day.

Exploring independently while on a cruise

For complete peace of mind

Furthermore, aboard Spirit of Adventure and Spirit of Discovery you won’t need to tip the on-board staff. Deciding how much to reward impeccable service isn’t an issue when the gratuities are included!
