Saga takes passengers on Baltic journey of musical magic

Monday 26 June 2006

Saga is offering people the opportunity to join a selection of enchanting cruises with a musical twist in its new brochure for 2007.

Classical music will be the theme to complement three superb cruises taking passengers around the fascinating cities of the Baltic.

Each cruise will include a full programme of concerts and recitals onboard, and guests will also be given the chance to learn about the works of some of the great composers and participate in classical music quizzes.

The cruises' itineraries also have a strong musical theme with many of the optional excursions including visits to the ballet, concert halls and opera houses.

Saga Rose leaves Dover on May 30 2007 on what will be the first of the three classical music themed cruises. Her new 13-night Baltic Jewels tour includes optional excursions to Amsterdam, Hamburg, Stockholm, Helsinki, St Petersburg, Tallinn, Berlin and Copenhagen. Prices start from £1544 per person.

Saga Ruby then sets sail from Newcastle-upon-Tyne on June 5 2007 for her Baltic Splendours cruise. The 13-night tour's first port of call will be Copenhagen, before taking in Stockholm, Helsinki and a Russian ballet in St Petersburg. The homeward journey will include visits to Berlin and Aarhus, home to the Danish National Opera.

Prices start from £1536 per person.

Saga Ruby then returns to the Baltic region when she leaves Dover on August 3 2007 on the Spirit of the Baltic Cruise. The itinerary includes visits to Brunsbuttel Lock (for Hamburg), Stockholm, Helsinki, St Petersburg, Tallinn, Riga, Warnemnde (for Berlin), Kalundborg (for Copenhagen) and Oslo. Prices start from £1686 per person for the 14-night cruise.

Andrew Goodsell, Chief Executive of Saga Group, said: "This line up is yet another impressive performance from Saga. The destinations on each of these three cruises offers the perfect complement to the arranged recitals and concerts onboard."
