Spirit of Discovery and -Adventure, are the only small ships currently being built for the British market, offering a balcony for every guest and a choice of free speciality restaurants. All backed by Saga's famous personal service and inclusive value. It are the first newbuilds for Saga ever.
After five years of planning, Saga Travel CEO Robin Shaw was visibly excited and said: ‘This ship is transformational for us. Our customers will experience a boutique ship like no other. She is absolutely stunning.
Our passengers do want a midsize ship so we have built this ship for a British market with London hotel-style speciality restaurants, a superb spa, a theatre and an Art Deco-influenced Lido area. She is stylish, even a little quirky, and filled with stunning artwork by British-based artists, which we are sure our customers will love. The centrepiece, a magnificent bronze relief spanning three decks of the atrium depicts scenes of the British Isles, including the Saga head office in Folkestone. ‘Spirit of Discovery handles beautifully; she has the latest technology with a superb manoeuvring system and I feel very honoured to be master of such a superb ship.’ according to a statement of Capt. Julian Burgess, who sailed the ship from Meyer Werft to Dover.
This ship offers plenty of space for relaxation, from two pools, a luxury Spa and a theatre, to the delights of a secret Terrace. It’s all been thoughtfully designed with a single aim: to help you find the spaces and places that will help you unwind, as only you want to.From bow to stern, every aspect of our luxury, boutique ship has been designed to surprise and amaze. Featuring design cues from some of the world’s finest hotels, she will be spacious and contemporary, and packed with places to get active, relax and indulge. It’s going to be a distinctly British cruise experience – there’s simply not going to be another ship like it!
