Saga adds further UK summer sailing ahead of international calls

Spirit of Discovery and Spirit of Adventure will commence international sailings in October
Saga’s Cruises has announced a further UK sailing on board Spirit of Discovery, before the ship plus its sister vessel, Spirit of Adventure, visit Europe this winter.

New UK itinerary plus UK summer sailings

A new six-night cruise around Wales and the West Country on board Spirit of Discovery departs August 21 calling Portsmouth, the Cornish town of Falmouth, before continuing to the Isles of Scilly and on to Fishguard, set within the heart of the Pembrokeshire National Park. 

Departing August 10, Spirit of Adventure cruises for six nights in the UK, arriving first in Portsmouth, sailing around Falmouth followed by a stop in the Isles of Scilly, with an included excursion to Tresco Abbey Garden. The vessel then sails to Portland’s UNESCO-listed Jurassic Coast, home to Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove and Kimmeridge Bay. 

On August 16, Spirit of Adventure will begin a seven-night cruise visiting the Isle of Anglesey and Pembrokeshire National Park, with visits to Holyhead and Fishguard, followed by a stop and excursion in Liverpool, before heading to Falmouth in Cornwall. 

The Scottish Highlands and Islands will be visited by both Spirit of Discovery and Spirit of Adventure on three separate cruises departing August 15, 23 and 27, 2021. The itinerary will take in the fishing town of Scrabster, close to John O’Groats, Lerwick, the main town and port on the Shetland Islands and Invergordon, the gateway to the Highlands, Urquhart Castle and Loch Ness. 

International sailings

On October 5, Spirit of Adventure will depart on a five-day ‘Taste of the Continent’ cruise calling Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Zeebrugge. 

On October 24, a 22-night ‘Treasures of the Croatian Coast’ will take place on board Spirit of Discovery as it sails the Adriatic calling at Hvar, Split, Venice, Valetta’s Grand Harbour, the fjord-like entrance to Kotor and across the sheltered harbour of Minorca.   

 All cruises include a choice of complementary UK travel to and from the port including a private door-to-door chauffeur service up to 250mi each way, car parking near the port, domestic flights or standard class rail or coach travel.
