European cruises

Our own continent is packed with amazing sights to discover

In addition to our longer itineraries, we've introduced a selection of ‘mini cruises’ – ideal for trying a Saga cruise at a great-value price, or perfect if you’re simply looking for a short break.

Hop aboard our welcoming ships for just four, five or six nights and you’ll be surprised by how much you can see and do. Perhaps visit the chocolate shops of Bruges, explore the Channel Islands, or delve into the history and culture of Amsterdam. New for 2018, we’re also calling at Tilbury, so you can spend a day in London too.

Some cruises even sail over the long Bank Holiday weekends, so they’re easy to find the time for.


Coastal France

For history fans, we offer several tours of the poignant war sites of the region, such as the D-Day beaches, the town of Arromanches, and a tour of the Bayeaux Tapestry museum.

Romantic Rouen

Where better to be on the most romantic day of the year than in France? Spirit of Discovery will mark Valentine's Day 2020 with a romantic mini cruise to Rouen, where she’ll spend two magical days moored in the 'City of a Hundred Spires'.

With an accordionist on board to provide an authentically French atmosphere and the chance to spend a day in Paris, a city synonymous with love, this cruise will provide precious memories for many years to come.
