Saga Cruises has announced four all-inclusive cruise itineraries from the UK aboard its new ship Spirit of Adventure and her sister ship Sprit of Discovery.
The Saga Cruises 2021 summer UK season will feature visits to Scotland, the Orkney Islands, Norwegian Fjords and cruises around the British Isles.
The cruise line has announced a ‘Scottish Highlands and Islands,’ ‘Great British Isles Adventure’ and ‘Northern Isles to the Fjords’ aboard Spirit of Discovery while its new ship will sail the ‘The Inaugural Cruise on Spirit of Adventure’.
“We know how much our guests want to get traveling again so we are delighted to be launching our all-inclusive, round-Britain Summer cruise itineraries taking in destinations from the Orkney Islands to the Norwegian Fjords,” said Nigel Blanks, CEO of Saga Cruises.
“The inaugural cruise of our brand-new boutique ship, Spirit of Adventure will be a real highlight,” he added. “Like Spirit of Discovery, she has a spacious feel and every detail has been designed with our guests in mind, from the modern, contemporary feel to the fantastic range of facilities and our incredibly high service standards.”
Saga Cruises, which is tailored at cruise passengers over 50 years old, is requiring that all its guests have had both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine prior to joining the cruises and will be ensuring social distancing, mask wearing and enhanced cleanliness onboard.
As a gesture of thanks for their loyalty, guests whose Saga Cruises had been canceled due to COVID-19were proactively offered the option to rebook on to the British Isles cruises prior to them going on general sale on March 29.
The Spirit of Adventure and the Spirit of Discovery are both small by today’s ship standards, hosting a maximum of 999 guests each.
They have a modern, contemporary look and feel and offer guests the choice of five restaurants, bars and entertainment facilities including the signature Britannia lounge with a dance floor and live entertainment, theatre, salon and sports amenities.
Outdoor facilities include an observation deck, impressive wraparound promenade and terrace, pool, games area, sports court and deck games.
