Saga cruises direct from the UK

Saga Cruises

Saga offers a fantastic collection of cruises, exclusively for the over 50s, although travel companions can be in their 40s. With 99% of guests rating their holiday as ‘good’ or ‘excellent’, Saga’s award-winning cruises allow you to explore a variety of destinations in the company of like-minded adult passengers.

Saga includes complimentary home-to-port transfers to Dover or Southampton if guests live within 250 miles of either port. If customers prefer to make their own way there, free car parking and regional flights are available.


Saga Sapphire carries 720 passengers in well-appointed en-suite cabins, some of the largest at sea. There is complimentary 24-hour room service in every cabin as well as a turndown service and modern amenities, from a mini-fridge to a flat-screen television and safe. Saga Pearl II carries just 449 passengers yet still offers comfortable en-suite accommodation and stylish public areas, including an elegant dining room.


There is plenty of choice when it comes to dining. Guests can choose open seating or fixed seating, al fresco dining or indoor dining.

The Pole to Pole restaurant on Saga Sapphire has four distinct areas which represent Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas, while the speciality restaurant, East to West, serves superb Asian cuisine to just 64 guests. There is also the option to dine al fresco in the informal Verandah and Grill.

Enjoy waiter service in the stylish main Dining Room on Saga Pearl II or opt for buffet-style in the casual Verandah. Occasionally, guests are invited by the Captain to dine with him in the small Chart and Ward Rooms.


Saga Sapphire and Saga Pearl II explore a variety of destinations, from the diverse Baltic cities of Stockholm and St Petersburg to the breathtaking Norwegian fjords and dramatic landscapes of Iceland, known as the Land of Ice and Fire. Perhaps venture further afield to the sun-drenched Canary Islands or the idyllic islands of the Caribbean.

Shore excursions are optional so allow guests to choose the ones that interest them. They can be pre-booked and range from active hiking tours to relaxing panoramic coach tours. Every excursion is accompanied by an experienced English-speaking guide. In addition, Saga offers a complimentary shuttle bus service to the town or city centre when docked in the majority of ports.
