Spirit of Discovery

Awaiting its launch in 2019, Spirit of Discovery completely redefines the luxury and comfort of a Saga Ocean Cruise. Donning a classical style, the majestic interior and facilities offer a step into the past with a contemporary touch that keeps the British atmosphere that Saga's ships carry.

Every luxurious cabin offers guests their own private balcony, and there are plenty of excellent public areas and facilities including multiple dining venues and lounges, a library, a theatre, indoor and outdoor swimming pool, spa and more.

Spirit of Discovery comes with four distinct dining venues, each with unique flavours and dining styles. All of your meals are included - even specialty dining - along with tips and service charges. For no extra charge, guests can enjoy a range of house red, white, rosé and sparkling wines with any of their meals, as well as UK-sourced craft beers, ales and a British-style gin-trolley.

The classical Grand Dining Room is an open seating venue which serves a la carte breakfasts, lunches and dinners. The afternoon tea sessions will also be hosted here each afternoon.

Choose to dine indoors or outdoors at the Verandah and Grill and enjoy lunchtime help-yourself buffet, evening 'a la minute' dishes and great healthy/vegetarian dishes. Grill some fish or meat on one of the Verandah's barbecue station for a more casual approach to dining.

Taste the flavours of the sea in the speciality Coast to Coast restaurant. Here, guests will enjoy excellent dishes of British and locally-sourced fish, shellfish and more, cooked minimalistic to allow the food to speak for itself.

The oriental East to West restaurant is an exciting alternative serving menus of authentic Asian dishes. From traditional and iconic to unique and contemporary dishes, there's always something new and sumptuous each day.

Spirit of Discovery boasts fantastic fitness facilities including a cutting-edge gym, Fitness Center, a number of exercise bicycles, and a sports court. Other features of Saga's fitness programme are Pilates, yoga, tai chi classes and 1-to-1 sessions with fitness experts.

Relax and refresh yourself in the ship's Spa centre which is fitted with a hydrotherapy pool, steam room, five private stone massage and treatment areas, and an infrared sauna.

Socialise with friends, have a browse at the shop, relax with a cup of coffee and a pastry or cake, or enjoy the evening views with a champagne glass in the ship's spacious Living Room.
Named after the Saga Ruby's bar, the South Cape Bar is an alternative social hotspot with warm colours, inviting furnishings and a great selection of drinks on offer. The bar also have large television screens which occasionally displays live sporting events, while the evenings will provide a programme of entertainment.

A variety of entertainment including shows from the ship's own theatre company, live music, cinema screenings and guest entertainers will be available at the Playhouse, a 400-guest theatre.

In the Library, indulge in a number of fiction books, discover and learn from the informative reference books or simply surf the web and catch up with family and friends. Whatever you choose, you can relax with complimentary tea, coffee and a range of homemade cakes. Additionally, a crafts area can be found here where free classes and workshops are available to join in.

At the rear of the ship lies the Terrace, a garden area which allows guests to enjoy great views in the evening with cocktails or perhaps take a walk along the wraparound promenade.
