Dear Readers,

I am back! After being away for nearly 2 months, I have returned fully refreshed and ready for new experiences on board Saga Sapphire. Together with me on this cruise are the familiar faces of Staff Captain Alex Downes, Chief Engineer Steven Hare, Hotel Director Alfred Steindl and Cruise Director Jo Boase.

After a very quiet turn around, we left Dover on schedule. I guess it is no longer a surprise to our regular guests that we start each cruise on a high note. This time, in the beautiful scenery off the white cliffs of Dover, an acrobatic show by one of the Spitfires from Biggin Hill caught some of our passengers by surprise. A pleasant one, I hope. What a performance! 

Shortly after we set sail towards our first port of call this cruise –Lerwick in Shetland Islands.
