  • Fleet: 10 Ships
  • Destinations: 2
Bringing the award-winning Saga Cruise experience to the rivers of Europe, guests will be delighted by the luxurious range of venues, accommodation and dining onboard. Whether you're enjoying mouth-watering cuisine or dazzling shows, you'll feel right at home on a Saga river cruise.

Shore Excursions

Shore excursions are the easiest way to make the most of the fantastic destinations on a Saga River Cruise. The standard shore excursion programme offers a choice of activities ranging from hikes to museum visits and city tours. However, if you’d prefer a more bespoke experience, the Explore Ashore teams onboard the ships are led by experts with local knowledge who can advise you on how best to spend your time on dry land.


Dining onboard a Saga River Cruise is tailored to the destination, meaning that experienced chefs use fresh and local ingredients to serve up delicious cuisine every day, paired with fine wine and beer. Guests can also vary where they eat by visiting the speciality restaurants onboard, all of which can be enjoyed free of charge.

Saga is pleased to provide diners with flexible eating options, and with one dinner sitting from 7-9pm, there is no need to rush your meal. If you find yourself feeling hungry at any time of day, you are more than welcome to enjoy afternoon tea, late-night snacks and room service at no extra cost.


Entertainment onboard Saga River Cruises is second to none and guests will be sure to enjoy every evening they spend onboard. Each ship has a Main Show Lounge with a repertoire of live bands, classical recitals, guest speakers and cabaret shows taking place every day. If you'd rather simply sit back and enjoy a drink, the expert bartenders will be delighted to whip up your favourite drink.


Between shore excursions and evening entertainment guests can take advantage of the other facilities available onboard. From a workout in the gym to taking part in an exercise class or some time winding down in the sauna, there are plenty of ways to stay active or relax. Alternatively, grab a coffee, sit back and watch the stunning landscapes slide by.

Saga River Cruises Ships
