Saga Orders New Ship

I can honestly say I’m a bit surprised by this. Saga seemed like they were content with secondhand tonnage. I guess there were no viable options for them.

  

from Saga:

Exciting news! After lots of work behind the scenes, we can finally reveal that we have begun plans to build a brand new Saga ship!

Being delivered to us in Summer 2019 from the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany, we’ve designed every inch to meet the demands of our customers.

Carrying less than 1000 passengers, it will retain the intimacy and personal service for which we are renowned. There will also be single-sitting dining in a choice of speciality restaurants, a selection of bars, indoor and outdoor pools, a spa, fabulous library, signature Britannia Lounge and much more – all with a fresh and contemporary twist on the traditions of classic Saga cruising.

The cabins are going to be a real showcase – spacious and modern, the ship’s design also means every one will have a balcony. In addition, around 15% of the accommodation will be just for solo travellers, with a choice of single cabin grades.

Below are some of the artist’s impressions of the new ship. Hopefully you’ll agree, she’s going to be a real showstopper!
