A luxurious and contemporary ship

The dazzling new, five-star Livingstone was only built in December 2014 and this sleek luxury vessel has been attracting envious glances ever since! The only UK passengers to have the chance to experience her comfort and style are customers on Saga Nile cruises!

And with a great choice of on-board facilities, this state-of-the-art ship ensures your days aboard are as exciting as your time ashore.


About the ship

Livingstone’s difference from other Nile cruise ships is apparent as soon as you step on board. The grand entrance lobby on the Main Deck is a taster of the contemporary classic design throughout the ship. Head to the Lounge Bar Tanya here to enjoy local alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks from the free bar, open between 11am and 10pm, or to relax with a book or friends. Look forward to nightly entertainment here too.

The stylish and spacious buffet-style main restaurant is located on the lower deck – this is where you'll be spoilt for choice as you help yourself to your breakfasts, lunches and dinners. There is another bar on the Sun Deck where you can soak up the sunshine stretched on a lounger by the swimming pool or in the Jacuzzi – towels are provided.

When you've had enough sun you can retire to the shaded area to cool off and admire the passing Nile scenery - be sure to have your camera with you! As you're on holiday why not slip away to the Spa and treat yourself to a relaxing massage, sauna or steam room.(Treatments here are at extra charge.)

Active types may prefer to head to the gym to make a little extra space for all that delicious international cuisine... In the mood for a little light shopping? There's a boutique/gift shop on board where you might find that item you forgot to pack or some souvenirs! Complimentary Wi-FI is available at reception and the lounge bar. Laundry service is available for an extra charge.
