Epic December 2022 Sailing with Saga

This year is a big one for cruise lovers, not least for fans of Saga, who might let themselves be tempted by the firm’s extraordinary 35-night Caribbean Christmas and New Year cruise departing 8th December 2022 aboard the Spirit of Adventure.

Travel insurance with COVID19 cover is included, as are the usual benefits (all-inclusive drinks, speciality dining, complimentary Wifi, and a return travel service from your home to the port), meaning you can look forward to this trip safe in the knowledge that everything is covered.

Your Cruise

Departing Southampton, you’ll visit, in turn, Ponta Delgada in the Azores, St John’s in Antigua (with an inclusive shore excursion), Gustavia in St Barthélemy, Road Town in Tortola, San Juan in Puerto Rico (with another inclusive shore excursion), and Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic.

You’ll spend Christmas Day relaxing at sea, enjoying all the facilities of your remarkable vessel, a boutique cruise ship who sailed her inaugural season in 2021. On Boxing Day you’ll enjoy the delights of Kingston, Jamaica, with a shore excursion included, before heading to Willemstad in Curaçao, Port of Spain in Trinidad (with an inclusive shore excursion) and Castries in Saint Lucia – with a late-night departure on New Year’s Eve.

You’ll spend the first day of 2023 experiencing the buzz of Barbados’ Bridgetown, perhaps heading to one of the island’s famed white-sand beaches for a day of pure relaxation. You’ll then head back across the Atlantic to Southampton, with a stop-off in Funchal, Madeira, en route.

Spirit of Adventure

The lovely sister to Spirit of Discovery, this vessel also has surprises of her own, including exciting new restaurants and contemporary artworks and decor. As she’s a boutique ship, there’s a private balcony as standard. This is one of the Saga’s most distinctive features: every cabin has a balcony, including single cabins, so everyone has their own space to enjoy the views and fresh air and soak up the sunset views as they head to their next fabulous destination.

With a guest-to-crew ratio of 2:1, the levels of service on board are second to none; there’s always someone on hand. All gratuities are included in the price, too, ensuring that every guest receives the same fantastic levels of service.

The exciting new line-up of speciality restaurants, all included in your cruise package, includes Amalfi, Saga’s first-ever Italian venue, and Khukuri House, the world’s first-ever Nepalese restaurant at sea. This is in addition to the main Dining Room, Grill restaurant, and all-new Supper Club.

Impressive outside spaces include the Lido outdoor pool, wide decks, a wraparound promenade, and bars and alfresco dining areas. Also aboard you’ll find more bars, the Playhouse theatre for live matinée and evening shows, the Britannia Lounge for music and dancing, and an indulgent spa for a spot of pampering.

Every Spirit of Adventure itinerary departs from the UK ports of Dover or Southampton, so there are no airport delays.
