Earlier this month I was lucky enough to be invited on board the new Saga Luxury Cruise Ship – Spirit of Discovery which had docked at Dover. Saga invited a selection of UK Travel Agents to a two night event in order that they could experience everything that the ship has to offer potential clients.
Spirit is indeed beautiful and, whilst it is larger than Saga’s other ships, it is still only a medium size cruise ship holding a maximum 999 passengers. All cabins are outside with balconies, have lovely fitted bathrooms, and spacious wardrobes and drawers. Some even have walk-in wardrobes.
We ate in various restaurants from the main dining room to the specialty restaurants (at no extra charge) and the food was excellent throughout.
Spirit is also the first of Saga’s ships to have a theatre on board (albeit quite small) and the cast put on excellent evening shows on both nights.
Our cruise out from Dover was only short but enabled us to judge the ship at sea where she was very quiet and smooth.
Clients can look forward to good food, good service and lovely accommodation plus if they wish they will have the benefit of the Saga VIP Home Service – pick up and return from your doorstep to any port up to 25o miles free of charge!
