Spirit of Discovery

Book now to save up to 35%

The wait is over. Britain’s newest cruise ship is now here, and embarking on her history-making inaugural season. Spirit of Discovery features the design cues, cuisine and levels of service you expect in the world’s finest boutique hotels. Except here you’ll wake up in a new idyllic location different to the one you went to sleep in.

Along with her sister ship Spirit of Adventure, they are the only small ships built for the British market, offering a balcony for every guest and a choice of free speciality restaurants. All backed by Saga's famous personal service and inclusive value.

A ship of the 21st century – yet still decidedly Saga. Everything we expected and more.

A private balcony for every guest

It’s a real ‘wow’. Every cabin has a balcony, giving each guest their own private space, inside and out. And with an average floor plan of 215 square feet as standard, there’s quite a lot of space to enjoy.
