Spirit of Discovery
Life aboard Spirit of Discovery
From bow to stern, every aspect of our luxury, boutique ship has been designed to surprise and amaze. Featuring design cues from some of the world’s finest hotels, she will be spacious and contemporary, and packed with places to get active, relax and indulge. It’s going to be a distinctly British cruise experience – there’s simply not going to be another ship like it!
No Saga ship would be complete without our signature Britannia Lounge, and it’s an exciting, multi-purpose venue where you’ll always find something to see and do.
Located on the Lido deck, it’s a double-height venue with panoramic windows looking out and over the front of Spirit of Discovery, offering some of the most impressive views the ship has to offer. In a nod to Saga Cruises’ legacy, the ship features a large, fully-glazed observation lounge, just like our first-ever ship, Saga Rose. And like its namesake, the Britannia Lounge is an exciting, multi-purpose venue where you’ll always find something to see and do.
During the day, it’s the venue for talks from guest speakers, or simply relaxing while admiring spectacular views. Then, later at night, it comes alive with dancing and live performances. Continuing the ship’s theme of choice, there’ll be entertainment each evening across various genres including singers, musicians and lecturers.
The Living Room
The 'hub' of Spirit of Discovery will be the bright and inviting Living Room. This vibrant, sociable venue will be the place to meet friends, grab a coffee, go shopping, or relax with an after-dinner cocktail.
Open day and night, it will serve gelato, fresh pastries and homemade cakes. In the evenings, the Living Room becomes a sociable bar with light entertainment, open until late. The perfect place for pre and post dinner drinks.
If you want to pamper yourself during your cruise, Spirit of Discovery’s serene Spa will be your haven. It’s the perfect place to relax and re-energise after a busy day ashore. There’s the inviting hydrotherapy pool surrounded by five treatment rooms, thermal beds, a high-tech infrared sauna, steam room, relaxation room and thermal suite.
Unlike the lower-deck spas on most ships, this tranquil space is set above the waterline. This means it has large windows along with decorative shutters, offering both privacy and natural light. A little bit of heaven, wherever you are in the world.
In a first for Saga, this ship also features our very own theatre at sea. Comfortable, raked seating The Playhouse seats 444 guests, meaning you’ll enjoy the best seat in the house wherever you sit, with unrestricted views of the stage. In The Playhouse you can expect a quality entertainment experience, every night of your cruise. This includes West End style shows, classical music performances, plays and revues.
During days at sea, expect matinees performances to boost your entertainment choices throughout the day. The venue is also the place to enjoy talks and lectures from our roster of guest speakers enriching your cruise experience.
A well-stocked library has long been a tradition on Saga’s ships, and on Spirit of Discovery, it’s one of the finest afloat. It’s a booklover’s paradise where you can browse and borrow from a curated selection of books covering history, travel and art to the latest fiction and literary classics.
It’s also the perfect spot to log-on to the ship’s free Wi-Fi, research your next port of call, and catch up with family and friends back home. The Library is a quiet relaxed space located at the top of the ship’s atrium, and another of the ship’s artful delights.
