Saga Sapphire

Saga Sapphire is an award-winning boutique ship dedicated to making you feel special. This classic vessel wows all who step on-board with her elegant décor, timeless character and intimate atmosphere.

Her small size means Saga Sapphire can reach cities and islands that larger ships simply can’t access, offering a real sense of adventure to passengers. And this ship’s on-board experience is no less special, incorporating the perfect mix of relaxation and entertainment. Saga Sapphire offers some of the most spacious standard cabins at sea, all complete with a chic design that turns each stateroom into your own personal haven. Add to this a serene Aqua Spa, a tranquil library, superb cuisine and fantastic on-board events, and you have a formula for a truly unforgettable cruise holiday.

Saga Sapphire will be waving a fond farewell to the Saga fleet in summer 2020. As part of her final send-off, all cruises on-board Saga Sapphire will be all-inclusive! With unlimited selected drinks, selected wines at lunch and dinner, Saga house-branded spirits, beer, mixers and soft drinks - you can enjoy your time on-board Saga Sapphire.
