Saga goes the extra mile with a vast choice of cruise holidays to worldwide destinations, exclusively for the over 50s (a travelling companion can be over 40), featuring river cruises as well as ocean cruises aboard our own small ships - Saga Sapphire and Saga Pearl II. Saga Sapphire and Saga Pearl II can visit lesser-known smaller ports that larger cruise ships can't. Plus with no more than 720 passengers on board Saga Sapphire and 449 passengers aboard Saga Pearl II, they have a relaxed and sociable home from home atmosphere.
Saga offers a wide range of inspiring itineraries, which depart from Southampton or Dover. These include cruises to the Norwegian Fjords and Iceland, the Canary Islands and the Caribbean. With two members of staff to every three passengers, you can be confident yous will enjoy fantastic service. With the ocean cruises being exclusively for the over 50s, they combine exploring the world with all the comforts of a luxury hotel and have been recognised with several interdependent travel industry awards.
Saga have won several awards for Best Value for Money Cruise Line - not surprising when you realise they include all this in the price!
