Why cruise on this ship?

Exclusively chartered for Saga guests, this elegant, compact vessel is the ideal introduction to river cruising in Europe and has the great advantage of navigating routes which larger vessels cannot.

As a result, it's small enough not to overwhelm yet large enough for you to find your own space, from a quiet corner in the Panorama lounge, enjoying the view from the sun deck or relaxing in your cabin, watching the scenery pass by. With no more than 80 passengers on board, the atmosphere is warm and informal – perfect for making new friends.

Enrichment

The Saga cruise director will always be mingling with guests and making sure everything's running smoothly. They'll no doubt organise a few impromptu games and quizzes too, for those who wish to join in. After dinner the pace remains just as leisurely. If the ship is berthed, you might like to take a stroll along the river bank – it's very easy to come and go as you please. Or if you're staying on board there might be a pianist playing, perhaps music to dance to, and occasionally local performers are invited on board to put on a show.

Explore Ashore

An exciting service led by our on board team of experts, brimming with local knowledge. You’ll find them at the travel desk on your ship, ready to help you get the most out of your time on land.

More than a normal excursion

Of course there will be a varied programme of shore excursions each insightful and fascinating in their own right. But Explore Ashore is much more than that.

Rather than a tour of thousands, let us show you the main sights of your destination on a small‑group excursion. You won’t feel rushed or herded around on the tourist trail. Its far more personal, and memorable too.
