Sail Date: Jul 2014
Cabin:

This was our second Saga cruise and easily met our expectations. I should say that my wife and I were looking for relaxation and not necessarily with the need to go ashore at each port visited. The trip itself was not without problems but this made no difference to our personal enjoyment of the holiday.

Saga offer an inclusive taxi collect from home and this helps make the embarkation experience so, so much easier. The Dover operation was pretty slick and we were quickly in our cabin ready for the off.

Day 2 of the voyage was a sailing day (Dover - Mantoir (for St. Nazaire)) and this is where the only problem of the voyage arose. One of the engines was found to have water in the sump and required to be shut down hence an extended voyage time which affected the whole itinerary.

Cabin Review

Cabin Exterior with balcony

A pretty good class of cabin that gave us all that we required. Impressive was the very high standard of cleanliness. Located deck 9 and midships so there was little effect on us from the one day of high swell (force 5).
