Spirit of Discovery is the all-balcony flagship for Saga, taking the classic traditions and excellent service and raising the whole on-board experience to new levels. Contemporary and stylish, she is an exceptionally beautiful ship with fantastic leisure facilities to entertain all guests.
As she’s tailored more to the experienced cruiser, you’ll find authentic formal dining venues as well as casual options should you want a more relaxed meal. All dining is included when you sail with Saga, so you can enjoy a whole range of dishes at no extra cost! Head to the South Cape Bar to enjoy craft beers and cocktails, or visit the Playhouse to take in a live show – there’s some incredible entertainment for you to choose from.
Spirit of Discovery offers Saga’s widest ever selection of dining at sea. The Grand Dining Room offers authentic flavours of the world in opulent settings, with fine à la carte cuisine served at breakfast, lunch and dinner, and afternoon tea freshly prepared each day. The Verandah and Grill are two restaurants in one, with the daytime venue offering a delicious buffet lunch before transforming into a healthy, ‘à la minute’ show kitchen in the evening. Then there are the speciality restaurants: East to West and Coast to Coast. Impeccably presented Asian cuisine is the order of the day at the former, and in the latter, modern seafood dining that melts in your mouth.
Spirit of Discovery’s cabins are tranquil retreats made for relaxation, with the rooms offering plenty space to stretch out and make yourself at home. Enjoy modern-contemporary design elements which take inspiration from some of London’s most fabulous hotels. Best of all, every stateroom on-board Spirit of Discovery has a private balcony. Whether you want to throw the doors open wide and fill your room with fresh sea air, take breakfast al fresco or simply sit out and read a book, your balcony offers endless possibilities. Take your pick from Single staterooms, Single Suites, Standard Twin, Mid Ship Suite, Forward Suite or Aft Suite – each offering its own comforts to make yourself comfy.
As well as a choice of on-board activities, Spirit of Discovery has a stunning theatre, The Playhouse, which showcases all manner of exclusive entertainment. Raked seating for more than 400 guests means everyone has the best seat in the house; essential when there is such an array of entertainment options on offer.
Enjoy a colourful new production after a delicious pre-show cocktail in the neighbouring foyer. From live music and guest entertainers to cinema screenings and performances by the ships very own theatre company, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Spend some time in the Britannia Lounge, offering the perfect place to relax and unwind.
Spirit of Discovery has no shortage of leisure activities designed to enrich your cruise holiday and offer even more unforgettable memories.
Make the most of the ships healthy living programme by enjoying the cutting-edge gym; relaxing yoga, tai chi and Pilates classes, and one-to-one sessions with fully-trained experts. Or retire to The Living Room: Spirit of Discovery’s bright and inviting social hub. Meet friends, grab a coffee, go shopping or simply relax with an after-dinner cocktail. Feeling creative? Head to The Library’s adjoining craft area to enjoy a range of free classes and workshops.
As Saga is a cruise line for those over 50 years, there are no kids permitted to sail on-board Spirit of Discovery.
