Step aboard our very own Saga river cruise ships

In 2021 we launched our first brand-new purpose-built river cruise ship, Spirit of the Rhine. Her various expertly planned itineraries explore the Dutch Waterways and the Rhine.

In spring 2022 we launched our second luxury river cruise ship, Spirit of the Danube, who will discover the famous sights and lesser-known gems of the Danube.

Designed exclusively for our guests, both ships offer boutique cruise luxury along with the highest standards of service and unbeatable value on Europe’s rivers.

Saga’s Price Promise

Book early and you can enjoy the best choice of cabins and departure dates. If we reduce the price of your cruise after you’ve booked, our Price Promise means we’ll give you the value of the difference back. Find out more.
