Saga UK cruises prove popular as itineraries sell out

Saga says limited space available on UK cruises as itineraries sell out

Saga has revealed that a majority of its summer UK cruises are sold out and it now has only limited space on one itinerary.

Spirit of Adventure’s inaugural cruise and three of the four British Isles cruises on Spirit of Discovery sold out within two weeks of officially going on sale on 29 March, the line said. 

There is now limited availability on the Great British Isles Adventure itinerary departing from Tilbury on 11 July.

This 14-night sailing is scheduled to call at Falmouth, Holyhead, Belfast, Greenock, Ullapool, Kirkwall, Orkney Islands, Newhaven and Newcastle.

Sight-seeing tours of Belfast, Kirkwall, Edinburgh and Newcastle are included. Prices start from £3,899pp.

All passengers will need both doses of a Covid-19 vaccine to travel with Saga.

Saga Cruises CEO Nigel Blanks said: “Our guests had told us how much they wanted to get travelling again and we couldn’t have more proof of that than our inaugural Spirit of Adventure cruise and three of our four Spirit of Discovery itineraries selling out so quickly.

“We’d prioritised guests whose Saga Cruises had been cancelled due to Covid by proactively offering them the option to rebook on to the British Isles cruises prior to them going on general sale on 29 March, which a good number took up, and since then the rest of the cabins have been snapped up.

“We put it down to the fact that our guests know that, not only is their safety and wellbeing our number one priority, as evidenced through our requirement that all travellers have received both doses of the vaccine prior to boarding, but that they will also enjoy an incredible experience on our ships.”

The summer cruises include a choice of UK travel to and from the port, including a private door-to-door chauffeur service up to 250 miles each way, car parking near the port, domestic flights or standard class rail or coach travel.
