Saga Cruises Christmas and New Year’s deals from UK are an excellent choice, especially for the Xmas cruise travelers in the category of active and “fun addicted” over the age of 50. The Saga Holidays cruise line operates with convenient England round-trip departures from Southampton and Dover. Saga ships offer most affordable prices to taste that very special relaxed, yet good-mannered atmosphere during the merriest Holiday times of the year. SAGA Holidays is a top seller of UK Xmas cruise deals – together with Thomson Holidays – another traditional player on the British cruising market. This is the link to the Saga line’s website.
The following short review of the line starts with Saga cruise experience. Saga as cruising style symbolizes classical travel with emphasis on Stay & Relax holidays. The elegant, yet comfortable and informal ambience suits best Saga Holidays passengers, who prefer low-key entertainment. Food on Saga ships is waiter-served in the Dining room, and buffet-style in the Verandah. However, no matter which one your choice is, all meals are prepared to perfection. Traditional English tea is served every afternoon in the Discovery Lounge, with sugar sculptures and beautifully crafted cakes.
Saga Canary Islands cruises for Christmas and New Year are from Dover and Southampton. Caribbean and Mediterranean Holiday deals are also available, but just like the Canaries Holiday voyages – only on board Saga exclusive couple of Sapphire and Pearl ships. As prices, Saga Cruises Xmas deals are not cheap and cost around £180 per day per person. Better try the early booking deals as Saga Holidays are not among the cheap UK cruise lines.
Saga Christmas Cruises 2016-2017 New Years Eve
Your Saga Christmas cruise and New Year holidays will be marked by a large percentage of British passengers. North Americans are also welcome on board, but because Saga Holidays wasn’t marketed (until recently) to them, the majority of guests are still British. A division of the based in the US Yankee Holidays Inc., “Cruise and Tour Reservations”, handles Saga’s reservations for North American travelers. Both Saga ships target passengers over the age of 50 (a minimum age of 40 is set for traveling companions). The average age on a typical voyage will be more like 70, and most of the company still quite active and eager to sail with like-minded souls.
The Saga cruise ships special holiday deals offer a modest number of choices as itineraries and destinations. The Saga Holidays cruise line has a small fleet of only two vessels sailing in warmer climates during the winter – as part of a world cruise, or tasting the waters of the Canary Islands and Caribbean on roundtrip Transatlantic crossings from UK. Regardless of destination or length, all Saga voyages start either from Southampton or Dover. During summer, Saga focuses on regions such as the Baltic, Norwegian Fjords, British Isles and the Mediterranean.
