Construction begins on Spirit of Adventure
A steel cutting ceremony has been held for Spirit of Adventure, Saga Cruises’ second newbuild and sister ship to Spirit of Discovery, launching in July.

The event took place today at Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, marking the start of construction for the 999-passenger vessel. Spirit of Adventure is due to start sailing from Dover in August 2020.

‘Today marks a special moment in Saga Cruises’ history – the first steel-cutting of Saga’s second purpose-built cruise ship, Spirit of Adventure,' chief operating officer Nigel Blanks said.

Interior designed by AD Associates

Spirit of Adventure’s bold and contemporary look is being masterminded by British design agency AD Associates.

Spirit of Adventure will be a 58,250gt vessel measuring 774.3ft in length with a beam of 102.4ft.

She will sail from Dover in August 2020 with itineraries featuring the Norwegian Fjords, the Caribbean and the Mediterranean.
