Saga will resume its international cruise itineraries on 5 October.

The line is planning to run a Taste of the Continent cruise on new ship Spirit of Adventure, departing from Dover and taking in Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Zeebrugge.

Prices for the five-day itinerary start from £1,156pp.

Following this, Spirit of Discovery will sail a 22-night Treasures of the Croatian Coast cruise, departing Southampton on 24 October, visiting Hvar, Split and Venice, among other destinations. Prices from £6,299pp.

Saga’s international itineraries follow the line’s round-Britain cruises, which are currently available with up to 35 per cent off. The line said these itineraries are “expected to sell incredibly quickly, given the unprecedented demand so far”.

UK cruises include Spirit of Adventure’s six-night itinerary, departing on 10 August, stopping first in Portsmouth, followed by cruising around Falmouth and a stop in the Isles of Scilly, with an included excursion to Tresco Abbey Garden before heading to Portland.

On August 16, the same ship will depart for the seven-night Britain’s Western Wonders cruise, visiting the Isle of Anglesey and the Pembrokeshire National Park with visits to Holyhead and Fishguard, followed by a stop and excursion in Liverpool, before heading to Falmouth in Cornwall. Prices start from £1,386pp.

The Scottish Highlands and Islands will be visited by both Spirit of Discovery and Spirit of Adventure on three separate cruises departing 15, 23 and 27 August.

Spirit of Discovery will also depart on a new six-night cruise around Wales and the West Country on 2 August.

Speaking about the resumption of international operations, Saga Travel CEO Nick Stace said: “We are pleased that the government has confirmed that restrictions will lift on international cruising. The entire cruise industry has been working closely with government to reach this point and it is a huge boost to receive the news that we will once again be able to welcome guests on non-domestic voyages.”
