A small ship holding only 720 passengers the Saga Sapphire is elegant, luxuriously intimate and extremely welcoming and is operated by British holiday makers Saga Travel. An informal atmosphere and contemporary approach make sailing across the seas a very pleasant holiday. With a huge array of amenities and personalised approach, the Sapphire is a ship that radiates magnificence.

Relax as you spend your time cruising through the Caribbean, Mediterranean and Norwegian Fjords. Spend your time outside at the Beach Club, indulge at the Aqua Spa or enjoy some ‘me time’ and take it easy in the Drawing Room.

Accommodation on Saga Sapphire

Whatever cabin you choose, it is guaranteed to be light, bright and spacious making them one of the highlights of the ships. With an average size of 220 square feet, the cabins are larger than the industry standard and some of the greatest afloat. Beautiful fabrics and crisp white linen make sure that wherever you stay it will be a home from home.

Be welcomed by fresh fruit, mini fridges and soft fluffy bathrobes. Retire to your comfortable cabin at the end of the night and turndown service and all the latest films before preparing for your next day. Catering for all there is 44 cabins that are especially for single travellers whilst still making sure you have all the space you need or for those who stay in a suite enjoy full butler service.

Although small, Saga Sapphire still has a lot to offer when it comes to fine dining options. With four restaurants onboard, you can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner full board from world class dishes to fine wines and irresistible desserts.

Pole to Pole
The main 620 seater restaurant is a grand space but still manages to retain Saga’s intimidate approach to cruising. Inspired by four different continents- Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas, Pole to Pole will serve you exquisite dishes of game, meat and fish and with open seating you can dine wherever and with whoever you choose or for something more exclusive a number of tables can be reserved for fixed dinner times.

East to West
At no extra charge cruisers can enjoy specialty dining at East to West and with only 64 seats makes for a meal most exclusive, so do not forget to book. Delicious oriental cuisine offering Chinese, Indian, Sri Lankan and Thai is served and the décor includes traditional wood carvings.

Verandah and Grill
The more casual Grill and Verandah offers breakfast, lunch and dinner and with a show kitchen you can get your food made to order. Enjoy buffet style lunch or waiter served dinner, making your dining experience tailored to how you prefer. Sit inside or on the alfresco veranda to appreciate healthy meals over stunning sea views.

The Beach Club
Encompassing true Britishness the Beach Club offers lunchtime fish and chips, burgers and hot dogs where you can sit on deck chairs around the pool. Finish with an ice-cream or some pick-and-mix to really make the most of the British seaside onboard.

Britannia Lounge

In the evening the Britannia Lounge transforms to provide dazzling entertainment, hosting the Captain’s Cocktail Party amongst singers, instrumentalists and the ship’s own resident theatre company.

Coopers Bar
Themed around comedian Tommy Cooper, Cooper’s Bar pays tribute with attention to detail; red fez lampshades and one-liners embroidered onto cushions, make this the perfect pre-dinner bar.

Enjoy a spot of pampering in the Aqua Spa which features state of the art treatment rooms, steam rooms, sauna and heated pool. With refreshingly indulgent treatments such as body wraps and manicures, a treat is recommended for all.
