Review for Spirit Of Discovery to Europe - Western Mediterranean

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We had sailed with Saga apprx 10 years ago and then went onto other bigger cruise ships, but decided to return to a smaller ship. (No casino and no kids) Saga were exceptionally well organised throughout our pre embarkation. Always keeping us informed and constantly updating us especially on their Covid protocol. Saga offered us free chauffeur, free insurance, all inclusive (yes alright i know it ...

I have converted to a Saganaut and that is official. Having cruised for many years and with many different lines SAGA cruises have topped them all. No more laughing about “Send A Granny Away” – their service and attention to detail is second to none. In fact none of the so called “white star service” can touch them for service, food and general high standard to detail. A pre Christmas cruise ...

Nice ship & a great crew but let down by quality issues and a totally shambolic organisation at Saga head office

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

First the good points. This is a lovely new small ship [less than 1000 passengers] with well designed cabins and one of the best crews we have ever sailed with. The cruise director was also the best. The speciality restaurants are available at no extra charge and the Coast to Coast seafood restaurant probably the best we have eaten in. However the food quality in the main dining room ...

SAGA cruising – it doesn’t get any better!

My wife and I have been very fortunate to have experienced very many 6* all-inclusive cruises including Seabourn, Regent, Sea Dream, Hebridean International and Silversea among others. We have sailed with SAGA Rose on 3 occasions in the past and were now very keen to sample SAGA’s new ships booking on Spirit of Discovery while the vessel was still undergoing construction. The 14-night cruise to ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Although I enjoyed this cruise it was not the same standard as the Spirit of Discovery. The pick up was excellent and quickly went through testing check in and boarding. The same could not be said about departure where the taxi driver yet again went to the wrong terminal and I was left waiting a long time. The ship is similar to discovery. Booking of speciality restuarants differs, you can only ...

10+ Cruises • Age 80s

Our 1st Saga Cruise or Saga Holiday Booking process by phone simple and efficient. However from then on trying to communicate with Saga was difficult and a little frustrating. Final details arrived far too close to sailing date and presentation could be improved. Perhaps consequences of Covid ? So called Chauffeur pick up not quite what we expected. Car turned up just outside the ...

Nice ship but attention to detail required

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

This 2 week cruise down the French/Spanish/Portuguese coast was an excellent way to get back into cruising. It was our 7th Saga cruise and the second on the new Saga ships. As usual, we were picked up from home and , on this occasion, taken to Tilbury docks. The embarkation procedure was somewhat chaotic with too many taxis arriving at the same time. Coupled with the requirement for 2 COVID tests, ...

Traumatic embarkation

First Time Cruiser • Age 80s

It wasn’t a good start. Communication with Saga was very very difficult. Eventually promised faithfully that labels and pick up time would be advised a minimum of 5 days before departure, but nothing came until 2 days before. They were sent only to my daughter, as ‘Lead’, there was no time for her to post my labels on to me, so I had to set off with unlabelled luggage. On arrival at Southampton my ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This was our first cruise and we chose Saga because we wanted to be with people of our own age. We love children but the fact that they are not allowed on Saga ships was for us, a relief. We were picked up from home at the appointed time and taken to Southampton where the embarkation process was faultless. The Spirit of Discovery is a beautiful ship and extremely well designed. Our standard ...

Saga “Celtic Escape” five night cruise aboard the Spirit Of Discovery. Just returned from this cruise. We booked this cruise just to get going again after the pandemic and it called in at Belfast, a place we have never been. It was also well priced considering it was truly all inclusive with door to door pick up/drop off, drinks, tips, speciality restaurants and some excursions. The big plus ...
