Sea Day

Saga Sapphire blog - Captains' blogs

26th July, 2018

Leaving the north coast of Majorca behind last night, we set across the Eastern part of Balearic Sea heading for the north shore of Corsica, it was a lovely day at sea. Calm seas, gentle breeze, absolutely lovely.

Anyway, the point of the blog is to share with you some photographs of the crew thankyou celebration dinner. It all started last cruise when I was able to present to every member of staff on-board, on behalf of Saga, a replica ‘Keel-laying coins’. Keel-laying coins? These were made and presented at the formal keel-laying ceremony, in Papenburg, Germany, which took place on the 28th June; hull no S714. I wonder if Spirit of Adventure will be S715?

Following on from this we held a ‘Thank You’ dinner for all the crew – the fact we have new ship being built is partly because of the crew. The crew is a significant factor why Saga Guests return to Saga, cruise after cruise. We asked our Guests to take dinner early in the Pole to Pole so Ursula and her team could set up for the crew dinner. It’s the only place we can really hold a ship-wide crew function. Of course, our lovely guests fully understood and were very helpful and the Pole to Pole was ready for the crew by 2130. What a wonderful evening, I do hope you enjoy the photographs.
