Grand Dining Room on Saga's Spirit of Discovery cruise ship


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.

A Forward Suite on-board Saga's Spirit of Discovery


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.

Playhouse theatre on Saga's Spirit of Discovery cruise ship


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.

The Spa Saga's Spirit of Discovery cruise ship


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.
