Welcome to boutique cruising...

A new Saga cruise ship is on the horizon. Spirit of Discovery will launch in summer 2019. 

Saga's Spirit of Discovery will offer a boutique British experience while sailing to inspiring destinations around Europe and further afield. 

The intimately-sized vessel, carrying no more than 999 guests, offers spacious, all-balcony accommodation, over 100 dedicated single cabins, and the excellent service you'd expect from a Saga cruise. On Spirit of Discovery, Saga cruisers have never had so much choice when it comes to dining. Enjoy a fabulous meal in the traditional Grand Dining Room, choose from plenty of amazing dishes in the equally beautiful Verandah restaurant, or make your evening even more special by dining in one of the three complimentary speciality dining venues.
