Saga Cruises has today announced their new cruise ship will be named “Spirit of Discovery”.
The new ship will carry fewer than 1,000 passengers, retaining the intimacy and personal touch for which Saga is renowned and will have more than 100 cabins for solo travellers, 20% of the ships capacity. The 55,900 GT vessel will be approx. 234 metres long, 30.8 metres wide and with a planned completion date of summer 2019.
Saga’s “Spirit of Discovery” will be delivered in Summer 2019 and will be built by the renowned Meyer Werft shipyard.
Robin Shaw, chief executive, Saga Cruises, said:
“We have great pleasure in announcing our new ship will be named “Spirit of Discovery”.
In September 2015, we announced that we were to build our first cruise ship – we’re still on a high from that news. With the design nearing completion, today’s announcement is the next step on this exciting journey.
“The name “Spirit of Discovery” evokes the adventurous nature and new experiences that cruise customers desire.
Key to the whole design process has been our customer insight. We know they want to experience new things in a luxurious, small ship environment. Our new ship’s itineraries will take customers to fresh, new destinations and will include more overnight stays in key ports.”
This year Saga Cruises celebrates its 20th anniversary.
Today, Saga has two small-sized ships, Saga Sapphire and Saga Pearl II, offering itineraries sailing from the UK to Northern Europe, the Mediterranean, the Baltic, the Caribbean and Canada and offering excellent standards of service, in quality surroundings with inclusive pricing.
