The 999-passenger ship will be built at the Meyer-Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany -- marking the first new-build vessel for the over-fifty travel specialist.

Saga has employed design company SMC Design, which has extensive experience with cruise ship design, having worked on P&O Cruises' popular Indian restaurant, Sindhu; Norwegian Cruise Line's Mandara Spa; Viking Cruises' the Explorers' Lounge and many other restaurants and bars on ships.

The ship will have 540 all-balcony cabins and suites, 100 of which will be specifically designed for solo passengers.

Other features include:

  • Two specialty restaurants
  • A main dining room and a Britannia Lounge
  • Two swimming pools
  • A theatre
  • A library, spa and beauty salon.

Spirit of Discovery will replace Saga Pearl II in 2019; Spirit of Adventure will replace Saga Sapphire the following year.

The 55,900 GT vessel will be approximately 234 metres long and 30.8 metres wide.
