Why cruise on this ship?

We’re delighted to announce the addition of a second river ship, Spirit of the Danube, to Saga’s fleet of custom-built ships.

Launching in 2022, she promises the same levels of comfort, service and value as her sister-ship Spirit of the Rhine. We're also using the latest engine technology to significantly reduce emissions, ensuring that our ship is one of the greenest on the rivers.

Eurostar from London to Rotterdam, they lied why we could not get off at Amsterdam. Food not up to standard, waiting service very slow and the food was not hot.

Dining

Spirit of the Danube offers world-class cuisine prepared using fresh local ingredients by our own chefs on board. As well as waiter-served breakfast, lunch and dinner in the main restaurant, guests may dine free of charge in the more intimate à la carte restaurant, created in partnership with celebrity chef Mark Sargeant, at least once during your cruise.

Enrichment

Our new ship brings boutique cruising to the Danube, the iconic waterway that winds through the heart of Europe, along with selected itineraries on the Moselle, Main and Rhine. Better still, up to five included excursions on every cruise gives you plenty of opportunities to explore, at no extra cost.

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.
