River cruise experience

Discover river cruising with Saga

We designed our brand-new boutique sister ships just for you.

Because they only carry 182 guests they feel intimate, but they're also spacious with panoramic windows on both sides. This amplifies the natural light and views from every public room, while the décor adds to the sense of airy space.

Welcome aboard Spirit of the Rhine and Spirit of the Danube.

What you can expect

As well as our high standards of service, look forward to fantastic facilities and superb cuisine, with entertainment and activities also chosen just for you.

Plus, we have total control over the itineraries of our cruises, which means we take the best possible route and visit the most interesting destinations.

Start your holiday at your door

Our popular VIP door-to-door travel service is the perfect way to get your river cruise off to a great start, and it's included on all our river cruises.

As one of the top European river cruise companies, we're here to make your holiday memories last a lifetime.

Fine dining in the main restaurant

The main restaurant is a table-service venue with panoramic views on both sides.

We change breakfast, lunch and dinner menus each day.

The restaurant is open seating, but you can reserve your own table if you prefer.

Intimate dining in the à la carte restaurant

Both ships also have a more intimate à la carte evening restaurant, which is perfect for special occasions.

There's no extra charge for dining here – but because there are only 34 seats, we recommend you book ahead.
