About Saga Cruises

Their small, elegant ships are cosy and intimate, yet spacious enough to provide all the amenities you need - your home away from home. Due to their size, they can sail you to the heart of destinations beyond the reach of larger ships in comfort and style. 

We’ve all heard of the phrase ‘good things come in small packages’ and when it comes to Saga cruises, it couldn’t be more true. Being smaller means they can dedicate enough thought, time and attention to making everything just right for you, taking care of all the little details that larger cruise lines wouldn’t be able to manage. 

So from remembering your name and favourite drink to our nightly turndown service, discover the hallmarks of every cruise that you can always look forward to, whichever one of their small ships you sail on.

Reasons to book

Saga Ocean Cruises

  • First-class Service  With Saga, fantastic service starts long before you even get to the ship. It’s 100% free to call and plan your cruise with their friendly Cruise Consultants – all are based right here in the UK at their Head Office. They will also take care of your pre-travel plans, from optional travel insurance and additional cancellation rights to tourist visas. And when the big day arrives, a chauffeur will meet you at home and whisk you off to the port. So just sit back and enjoy the ride.
  • Life on board – Joining a craft or hobby class… working up a sweat in the gym... enjoying a talk or quiz… playing deck games… borrowing an iPad and surfing the internet with their free Wi-Fi… taking in the sea air as you sail to another fabulous destination… Life on board can be as active or relaxing as you want it to be. And when the evening arrives and your gem of a ship is sparkling in the night, there are more taxing decisions to make. Will it be a cocktail party and dinner in the main restaurant followed by a cabaret show? Or a quick bite, then more low-key entertainment such as a classical recital or film in the cinema?
  • A choice of dining options – Deciding when and where to dine is all part of the Saga cruise experience. From world-class dishes of game, meat and fish to fine wines and a selection of irresistible desserts, they give their talented chefs free rein to shop, plan and prepare their own menus. This means food can go from the market to your table in a matter of hours. There’s always the freedom to eat in their alternative venues too, such as East to West on Saga Sapphire. And where other cruise lines would charge extra for this special experience, they wouldn’t dream of it – all meals are included in the price, with no added supplements or charges.
  • Comfortable cabins – Step inside your own private space where you can relax in peace or catch the latest films on the free in-cabin movie channel. All while enjoying en-suite facilities with fresh fruit and water, complimentary luxury toiletries, fluffy bathrobes and a nightly turndown service. Plus, free 24-hour room service means you can dine-in or have drinks delivered whenever you choose, day or night.
  • Value for money – It’s long been a Saga hallmark to include a full package in the price of every cruise. Their generous range of inclusions means you’ll be free to budget for your holiday without worrying about the costs mounting up later on.

Saga River Cruises

  • An adults-only environment – River Cruising tends to offer a more mature atmosphere, and if you cruise aboard ships that are reserved exclusively for Saga guests, the entertainment, itinerary and food will be tailored to you. (But remember, just because river cruises are ideal for adults, doesn't mean you have to act grown up!)
  • You're never too far from land – If you’re more of a land lover, then a river cruise is still a great choice for you as land is always in sight! Rather than watching the endless rolling of the waves, you’ll be able to enjoy the gradual transition of beautiful scenery as you pass riverside towns, woodland and more.
  • No need to find your sea legs – Unlike on an ocean cruise, there are no rocking motions from the water, so if you do tend to feel a little green when sailing, a river cruise is an ideal alternative.
  • Visit a variety of destinations, but unpack once – One of the key advantages of a river cruise is that you can explore many towns and cities – sometimes travelling through a number of countries – without the need to unpack at every destination. You’ll have more time to make the most of the sights and life on board.
  • Moor in the heart of the action – For many centuries, the rivers have been the lifeblood for the growth of bustling communities and new cities, so you'll find many of the most famous places in the world are situated near a river. So it’s easy to explore the musical heritage of Vienna, discover the history of Budapest, or soak up the culture in Paris from your ship!
  • Itineraries created with you in mind – Our expert Holiday Creators know the world’s waterways very well, and love to create itineraries that combine the must-see sights with hidden gems they have discovered. We offer river cruises along the Danube, Rhine, Seine and the Volga, to name but a few, so you are sure to find the perfect river cruise for you.
  • A casual and comfortable environment – What could be more relaxing than sitting back on a Sun Deck with a refreshing drink as the scenery slowly slips by? We want your river cruise to be as laid-back as possible, which is why we have a casual dress code on board, though you will need to dress a little smarter for dinner in the evening
  • Not just another face in the crowd – Carrying less people than an ocean liner (usually no more than 200 passengers), you'll be able to enjoy a more personalised service on board a river cruise ship. As your cruise continues, it's not unusual for some crewmembers to not just remember your name, but also how you like your coffee at breakfast time!
