Spirit of Discovery

A new dawn in cruising has arrived

Launching in Summer 2019, she features the design cues, cuisine and levels of service you expect in the world’s finest boutique hotels. Except here you can wake up in a new idyllic location different to the one you went to sleep in.

Called Spirit of Discovery, her luxurious, world-class design heralds a new era for Saga Cruising, and will offer the chance to experience so much more. All backed by Saga’s famous personal service and inclusive value.

Making the perfect impression

This ship offers plenty of space for relaxation, from two pools, a luxury Spa and a theatre, to the delights of a secret Terrace. It’s all been thoughtfully designed with a single aim: to help you find the spaces and places that will help you unwind, as only you want to.

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 245 square feet as standard, there’s quite a lot of space to enjoy.
