Saga Welcomes Spirit of Adventure To The Fleet

The latest addition to Saga’s ocean cruise fleet, Spirit of Adventure, was handed over today in Emden, Germany, by shipbuilder Meyer Werft.

Spirit of Adventure is Saga’s second purpose-built boutique cruise ship, joining Spirit of Discovery which became part of the Saga Cruise fleet with much fanfare in July 2019. Spirit of Adventure has 554 all balcony cabins and can accommodate 999 passengers with a tonnage of 58,250 GT. She will soon set sail for the UK with her inaugural cruise now scheduled to leave on the 5th February 2021 for the Canary Islands.

Nigel Blanks, Managing Director of Saga Cruises, said:

“This is a really exciting day for us as Spirit of Adventure officially becomes part of the Saga Cruises family. Over the past 18 months, we have been focused on creating a British boutique cruising experience for our guests that is not available elsewhere on the market and Spirit of Adventure is an important milestone in this plan. While she shares some similarities with her sister ship, Spirit of Discovery, Spirit of Adventure is unique in her own right with distinctive design features and characteristics.

“Though the inaugural cruise will take place a little later than we had originally planned due to the ongoing restrictions on travel, we cannot wait to welcome guests onboard and see all she has to offer. Having recently visited the ship in Germany, I can assure you, she is worth the wait!”

The health and wellbeing of guests and crew is Saga’s number one priority and over the past few months, the team has worked to put in place detailed new procedures for a return to cruising in a COVID world. These include reduced capacity, pre-departure testing both at home and before boarding, increased medical staff and facilities and enhancements to our state-of-the-art air conditioning, which already provides 100% fresh air throughout our ships.
