Sail Date: Sep 2019

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 approached her berth I wasn’t initially enthused by her look, but gradually, throughout our back to back cruise, she grew in stature and even majesty.

With a bigger ship one wondered whether Saga would retain the warm community feel of her earlier vessels. They had. Immediately one boarded one saw the smiles of the staff and to be frequently greeted by name was astonishing.

Cabins (ours was a Standard Cabin) are very comfortable with a pleasing balcony and pleasant sitting area. The one limitation is the gap between the end of the bed and the cabin wall/television which is fairly narrow. But you make it work. The bathroom is neat and compact with a very fine shower.

Cabin Review

Cabin Standard

Very comfortable. Good balcony. Pleasant seating area as well

Too narrow a space between bed and cabin wall/television.

Bed large, and welcoming.

Wardrobe large, though not enough space for shoes. We were always “hiding” them.

A little short of drawer space........ though you manage.

Bathroom, splendid. Compact and apt. Great shower.
