How our discounts work

On all cruises we set aside a number of cabins within each level at a discounted fare, with the highest discount of 35% for ocean cruises and 25% for river cruises available on selected levels. These cabins are sold on a first come, first served basis. As cabins are sold, the discount begins to reduce, and continues to reduce until those selected cabins are sold.

This means that the earlier you book, the higher the chance of securing a greater discount. Our price panels clearly show the full cruise price, along with the current discount fare.

Please note: During busy periods for holiday bookings, the early booking discount can reduce rapidly. We recommend that you book early to benefit from the best booking discounts and to secure your preferred cabin.

When promoting new cruises for the first time, we contact customers on our Advanced Registration list first, allowing then to secure the cabin of their choice and benefit from the best savings. Our brochures are then sent out to loyalty club members first, followed by past cruise goers and then everyone else.

Follow the trail of Mediterranean’s great civilisations past and present on this all-inclusive cruise to the eastern Mediterranean in 2025. See the influences of ancient Greek civilisations in Sicily and Crete. In Turkey, visit Bodrum, overlooked by its medieval castle, and Antalya, where the narrow lanes of the old town are lined with Ottoman houses.

Discover the ancient architecture of Rhodes Town, founded in 408 BC, and visit the Cypriot city of Paphos whose wealth of archaeological treasures include the Tombs of Kings necropolis. Continue to Israel where Haifa and its UNESCO-listed Bah’ai Gardens and Ashdod, gateway to Jerusalem, await.

Marvel at the Egyptian antiquities of Alexandria and visit Port Said, a new port for Saga Cruises, before exploring the Knights of St John’s ‘Golden City’ of Valletta. The cruise is bookended by visits to Gibraltar and Malaga, home to several impressive Moorish citadels.
