MS Serenade

The popular MS Serenade is reserved exclusively for Saga…

The luxurious MS Serenade will carry Saga passengers for the first time in 2020 and from the moment you step aboard you will instantly feel at ease. With just 68 cabins, it is small enough to find your way around the vessel quickly and enjoy the exclusivity of small ship cruising, while having plenty of space to enjoy. All the spacious cabins are situated over three decks with beds which can be converted into twins or remain as a double. Superior Cabins on the Chopin deck have a French balcony. There are two cabins on the deck which measure 20 square metres and have a full size balcony in addition to floor to ceiling windows. On the Mozart deck Superior Cabins have a French balcony while the Standard Cabins on the Beethoven deck have large fixed porthole windows. All cabins come with a television, phone, safe, hairdryer, minibar and tea and coffee-making facilities. All bathrooms are equipped with a shower and a bath. Wi-Fi internet access is complimentary.

The restaurant on the Mozart deck boasts floor to ceiling windows while there is a panoramic lounge/bar to the fore of the Chopin deck which is where you can enjoy evening entertainment, from piano recitals to visiting folk bands.. There is a fitness room and a wellness spa to the aft of the Mozart deck, featuring a sauna, while the wheelroom has an open door policy, allowing you to meet the captain and see him at work.
