There's a brand new way to experience your destinations
On Spirit of Discovery and Saga Sapphire from 2019, and Spirit of Adventure from 2020, our new Explore Ashore team will be on hand. This exciting service heralds a brand new way to plan and enjoy your time ashore, tailored to exactly how you want it.
So what is Explore Ashore?
Its an exciting new service led by our on board team of experts, brimming with local knowledge. You’ll find them at the new travel desk on your ship, ready to help you get the most out of your time on land.
More than a normal excursion
Of course there will be a varied programme of shore excursions each insightful and fascinating in their own right. But Explore Ashore is much more than that. Rather than a tour of thousands, let us show you the main sights of your destination on a small-group excursion. You won’t feel rushed or herded around on the tourist trail. Its far more personal, and memorable too.
The Explore Ashore team are really in the know
Well-travelled and full of ideas, they can help you get exactly what you want out of your holiday, in all of the ports of call we visit. They’ll be happy to research and provide independent travel advice too. At no extra charge of course.
Bespoke tours, with you in mind
Can't find anything you like in the programme of shore excursions? Then let us create a bespoke tour, taking in everything you want. All the highlights from your guidebook, and more. How about an introduction to the owner of an impressive castle, who might enable you to discover secrets most tourists never see. Or perhaps you simply want to grab a map, book a taxi and go freestyle. Whatever you want, we’ll be delighted to make it happen.
