Agadir, Morocco

Saga Sapphire berthed in Agadir, Morocco at 8.00am.

The region that surrounds Agadir is composed of the plain of the east-west–trending Sous valley, which itself is enclosed between the High Atlas and Anti-Atlas mountains. Cereals (primarily barley), citrus fruits, olives, sheep, goats, and cattle are raised on the irrigated Sous plain, while sheep and goats are grazed in the mountains.

Once again our excursion tours made the first venture into this interesting town. Starting off with “Taroudant- A taste of Morocco”, then the “Agadir City Secrets & Fantasia Show” at which guests watched and listened to the sound of Morocco and also had a taste of its popular mint tea and some Moroccan pastry. “Imouzzer Paradise Valley by Jeep” was the most active tour, but the one that gives a complete taste of Morocco was the overnight stay in Marrakech, where our guests will stay in a hotel tonight and will then rejoin us in Casablanca tomorrow.

A special Barbecue Lunch was beautifully prepared by the Galley Department headed by Executive Chef George and wonderfully served by the Restaurant team headed by Restaurant Manager Abram Santonil as we sailed away, while Perfect Mood Duo, Lily and Zoltan together with Martin Orbidans plays festive music in the background.

I, together with guest Chaplain Jane Lloyd, lead the Epiphany Church Service which began with the Filipino Choir singing three songs with, on the last song, all our guests joining in.

Classical Piano Entertainer Adam Johnson once again graced the stage with his excellent performance in the Britannia Lounge for Show Time. The Saga Orchestra followed with music for dancing, while in the Drawing Room Perfect Mood played requests for our guests’ listening and dancing pleasure.
