Excellent food, service and cabin, but lots of black soot towards the stern of the ship

Absolutely fantastic cruise

The cruise was called "A Taste Of The Continent". My husband and I have enjoyed another wonderful cruise on the Spirit Of Discovery. This was our 5th cruise on this lovely ship. I have not reviewed this ship before but the quality of this cruise necessitated that I review. We were collected from home by a chauffeur who looked like he had walked out of a Saville Row window, so incredibly smart. He ...

Our first Saga cruise: lacking the 'wow' factor

We have just returned from our first Saga cruise on the Spirit of Discovery – 14 days round trip from Dover, departing on 17th August 2022, calling at St Peter Port, La Rochelle, Bordeaux, La Coruna, Gijon, Santander and Brest. Although this was our first cruise with Saga we consider ourselves seasoned cruisers with many trips over the last 18 years, including Celebrity, Princess, Azamara, ...

This was our first cruise with Saga, having only done one other cruise on the Queen of Elizabeth to Norway nearly 3 years ago. Once we had navigated through the covid tests the welcome aboard was excellent with a crew member showing us to our cabin. We had booked a standard cabin on D deck which was fine although we could have done with more drawer space. The stewardess who looked after some of ...

Fantastic service staff, excellent food and wine, filthy aft decks

We chose the cruise to try out the newish Saga vessel for a cruise to the Med in good weather with several interesting ports of call all of which the cruise provided. While the crew, food wine were excellent the experience was badly let down by the fact that the open aft decks were for much of the time filthy with greasy black soot spots. It didn't seem to matter what the wind direction /speed the ...

We sailed on the beautiful Spirit of Discovery on the 27th of April on the 15 night “Baltic Ensemble” cruise. We were collected from home using Saga‘s marvellous chauffeur service. The vehicle was spotlessly clean and the driver confirmed that he had taken a Covid test that morning and was negative leaving us feeling a little safer. The chauffeur was very attentive and informed us that we could ...

We booked this Cruise on the 25 January 2022 as a special birthday celebration which included visiting Sicily and Sardinia the highlights for us. We paid the total, but confirmation of my Travel Insurance was not included until we heard from the Insurance Department. We did receive a call from Saga and gave the requested information. We were told we would be contacted from another colleague. ...

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 ...

Saganauts Rule OK - Even a Captain Jason!

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
