Saga Cruises give you value for your money


Saga holidays or Saga Cruises is a branch of Saga Group and is a British-based cruise line founded in 1951. This cruise line is specifically designed for travelers 50 years of age and above and is only open to them. If you are 50 years of age and above and are looking for a cruise line that is comfortable, informal, and yet elegant, Saga Cruises is the one for you. In keeping with the needs of the modern world, passengers have access to small but modern spa with fitness centers and hair saloons, internet cafes, along with alternative dining in the Intimate View restaurant of Saga Ruby that can only serve 30 passengers every evening. Keeping in mind the needs and desires of people who are in the age group of 50 and above, the cruise line has no casinos, lavish shows, or even shopping malls and keep it low key with a relaxed but fun social life, libraries, and different types of games.

Another interesting feature of Saga Cruises is that every afternoon you are treated to English tea in two locations. At night you can enjoy cabaret-style entertainment and ballroom dancing.

As mentioned above, this cruise line is only open to travelers of 50 years of age and above. However, a traveling companion of 40 and above is also allowed. The average age of passengers on a two-week cruise will roughly be the active and fun loving 70 year olds. Most of the travelers are British though North Americans are sailing in more numbers now. This is because this cruise line was not exposed to the North American market until recently.

New Entry: Saga Sapphire is the newest entry to join this cruise line. The ship will begin its first journey or sail on March 26, 2012. The ship will have a contemporary and stylish design and have the same standard the other ships in the fleet have.

For the second year running, Saga Cruises has been voted the top cruise line by the readers of Which? Magazine. Keeping the term "value for money" true, the price of Saga cruises includes entertainment and food like all other cruise lines. But added to these are a chauffeured car that drives you to the port from your home and then back to your home after the cruise, a travel insurance, and gratuities along with its impeccable and friendly service and visiting great ports. In addition, Saga cruises give the assurance that they will refund the difference in money, if the price of a cruise falls after a booking is confirmed.

Saga Cruises bring you a wide range of activities onboard


Painting and computer classes, yoga or pilates, swimming, or attending guest lecturers are some of the day activities you can engage in. If you want to spend some quite time alone, you can relax in the out-of-the-way and cozy areas. You also have access to spa, gym, beauty saloon, and a library.

In the evenings you can dress up for a formal night and enjoy an extravagant night with great food and a dazzling show. You can also socialize with friends--old and new- watch a film, dance, or simply enjoy the live music. In some selected cruises, you may also be entertained by celebrities.
