Spirit of Discovery

Sailing from 2019, Spirit of Discovery completely takes the luxury and comfort of a Saga river cruise out into the ocean, with itineraries departing from Dover and Southampton. Donning a classical style, the majestic interior and facilities offer a step into the past with a contemporary touch that keeps the British atmosphere which is so popular amongst guests. 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 where guests will find a number of exercise bicycles, as well as a sports court. Other features of Saga's fitness programme are Pilates, yoga, tai chi classes and 1-to-1 sessions with fitness experts.

When it comes to winding down, relax and refresh yourself in the ship's Spa which is fitted with a hydrotherapy pool, steam room, five private stone massage and treatment areas, and an infrared sauna.

With your free time onboard Spirit of Discovery, head to the Living Room where you can socialise with friends, have a browse in the shop or relax with a cup of coffee, all while taking in the fantastic view.

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 for you to join.
