Lovely cruise on beautiful ship

We managed to get the last accessible cabin on this sailing. Even if you use a small foldable wheelchair, as I do, Saga insist that you have an accessible cabin (elf and safety), and there aren’t many. ...

Pretty much perfect

Saga Cruises have been on my radar for a while now. I have visited Saga Sapphire and overnighted on Saga Pearl II but my friend and I both felt we weren’t ready for the Saga experience at the time. However, the ...

Small Ship Cruise to Iceland and Norway

It is a bit concerning to take a small ship across the North Sea and North Atlantic. We have crushed the route on a big ship, but how would it be on a small ship. The answer is it was great. The small ship ...

My wife and I have frequently sailed with Saga and much enjoyed the charm of her smaller ships, Pearl and Sapphire so it was, with some uncertainty, that we sailed on her new Ship Spirit of Discovery. As we ...

This cruise packs a lot into 2 weeks, perhaps too much.

The Celtic Explorer started in Dover and traveled to Jersey, Falmouth, Fishguard, Greenock, Skye, Mull, Dublin (2 days), Zebrugge, Antwerp (2 days) and Amsterdam. The main problem with this 12-day itinerary was ...

Good itinerary but the ship was disappointing

EMARKATION;- Embarkation went very smoothly without a hint of a queue and in fact we were allowed on the ship earlier than expected. Once onboard we were permitted access to staterooms on the understanding that ...
