Saga Sapphire to sail on mystery winter cruise from Southampton

Saga SapphireSaga Holidays has just announced it is offering a cruise with a difference for this winter. Passengers embarking on the company’s Secret Cruise in November will not know which ports-of-call they will stop at until their cruise ship docks there.

The Saga Sapphire will set sail for destinations unknown from Southampton on the 27 November. The cruise is 21 nights long and package prices include everything from meals, including an afternoon tea, to welcome aboard cocktails and complimentary alcoholic drinks.

Even chauffeur services to Southampton and shuttles and excursions at stopover ports are included. The only things passengers will have to pay for during their seaborne odyssey are premium wines and other beverages. Like all Saga packages, the Secret Cruise is aimed at the over-50s although one of the travellers in each pair is allowed to be a decade younger

Prices for the cruise are not exactly cheap and are a little under £5,000 per person for two sharing a twin occupancy cabin. Outer cabins, superior cabins and suites come with higher price tags. Two people sharing a deluxe suite will not come away with much change from £20,000.

With a maximum capacity of 720 passengers, the Saga Sapphire provides a more intimate and personal cruise experience. The vessel is loaded up with a huge collection of entertainment amenities plus four restaurants.

Passengers would not be bored even if no ports-of-call were included. Highlights of the facilities are the Beach Club and its pool, a fitness centre, a spa, crazy golf and shuffleboard. The dining outlets serve up international and Asian fusion specialities and standard grilled dishes.
