Join the Saga sapphire in 2019/20 to say farewell…

2019/20 will be Saga Sapphire’s final season, so Saga has prepared a wonderful calendar of cruises, culminating in five spectacular new voyages. Plus her cruises include unlimited onboard drinks…

Our very own Stephanie Giarnese writes about her ‘Scandinavian Delights’ trip on board the Saga Sapphire, which she took in September 2018.

With the Saga Sapphire currently running through its farewell tour, so the chance to experience a stay on this ship is limited.

Nightlife…

The ship had its own entertainment provided each night after dinner in the Britannia Lounge.  Ranging from comedians, a classic cabaret act, a singing and dancing show and an acapella group stealing the show, there really was something for everyone. Also featuring multiple bars, perfect for those seeking a chilled drink or those wanting to listen to some music a skilled pianist was playing in the background.

Up on deck 11, you’ll find home to the drawing-room, providing a live singer, a large dance floor and various entertainers. If this wasn’t enough, you’ll also find large sofas and comfy seating, perfect to wind down at the end of the evening.

A taste of perfection…

Superb cuisine, including the Oriental flavours in East to West, along with exceptional service, are both as much a part of Saga Sapphire as her hull or funnel.

Cruising on the Saga Sapphire is like having reservations at the best restaurant in town, each and every night.

However, you want to dine is always up to you. Choose from the main Pole to Pole or alternative Verandah restaurant. Enjoy the freedom of open seating, or book a ‘fixed’ table throughout your cruise. Look forward to free specialty dining in East to West, not to mention other mouthwatering options, such as fish and chips in the Beach Club and an exclusive room service menu.

It’s little wonder Saga Sapphire was recently recognised as ‘Best for Small Ship Dining’ at the prestigious Cruise Critic awards!

Ports of call…

On the Scandinavian Delights tour, we docked in the ports of Norway, Stavanger, Gothenburg.

If you’re an early bird you could watch the scenery as you pull into port Stavanger being particular pretty with rows of little colourful wooden houses and church steeples in the distance.

Cabins…

With some of the largest standard cabins at sea, Saga Sapphire’s spacious cabins are your own private haven to enjoy. Wherever in the world you happen to be.

Explore…

Cruises are perfect for exploring, as you spend each night travelling either partake in one of the many guided tours or take off into the town on your own.

Saga also arrange a meeting point for single travellers to meet up each morning in port so that they can arrange to go out in groups and pairs between themselves.

Retail Therapy…

There are plenty of opportunities to get in a bit of retail therapy, there is an onboard shop and stalls up throughout the duration selling a range of luxury and novel products to enhance your trip or provide a token souvenir. Each port of call comes with another opportunity to indulge in perusing the shops for trinkets and souvenirs.

For added luxury the Saga Sapphire also has its own onboard spa facilities with a range of treatments and special offers throughout the length of the cruise.
