Date Posted: 15/05/2011

Saga Cruises’s latest fleet addition, Saga Sapphire will embark on its inaugural cruise in March next year, following an extensive refurbishment programme scheduled to begin in November.

Described as contemporary and eclectic with a British twist, highlights of the refurbishment will include the addition of a new balcony deck and a re-design of all public spaces including The Drawing Room and The Pier, which will have a British seaside feel with fish and chips, and ice cream parlour. New features also include an open-air cinema and hot tubs.

Pole to Pole will be the main dining venue, themed around the seven continents, along with Asian specialty restaurant East to West, and The Grill, offering a range of lighter meals.

Saga Sapphire will set sail on its inaugural voyage on the 26th March, with a 23-night cruise in the Mediterranean. Additional itineraries include Ireland and the Tall Ships five-night mini-cruise departing on the 24th August; Melodies of Norway seven-night cruise departing on 21st May; and 31-night cruise A Caribbean Celebration departing on the 17th November.
