There's no business like show business as West End star Lyn Paul joins Saga cruise

Tuesday 25 February 2014

Blood Brothers’ fame actress takes centre stage on Saga Sapphire

West End star Lyn Paul will be singing hits from top shows and her favourite chart-toppers when she joins Saga Sapphire’s cruise to the Baltic on June 17.

Lyn, who wowed the West End in Blood Brothers, was also a member of The New Seekers, whose single You Won't Find Another Fool Like Me went to No.1 and the catchy I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing sold an amazing 20 million copies.
As well as entertaining passengers on stage, Lyn will share anecdotes from producers, directors, cast and crew during an informal Questions and Answers session.

The award-winning film Les Miserables will be shown in the ballroom, with plenty of popcorn to share, plus Phantom of the Opera, Evita and West Side Story screenings will also feature during the 14-night West End-themed cruise which sails from Dover.

The journey to the Baltic will be made quick and simple along the Kiel Canal – a 60-mile channel through the German countryside. Once in the Baltic, the haunting white nights of summer begin at a latitude on par with the Arctic Circle. During this time the sun never sets so passengers can enjoy the midnight sun 24 hours a day.

There are new states to explore –Tallinn in Estonia is acclaimed for its fairy-tale skyline of turrets and spires; there's great shopping in Latvia's Ventspils and from the port of Klaipeda, in Lithuania, passengers can visit the 13th century Memelburg Castle.

The imposing grandeur of St Petersburg awaits and the relatively young city, which has packed a lot into its 300 years, is brimming with elaborate palaces and world-renowned museums. An overnight mooring offers guests the chance to enjoy evening attractions, too, from the ballet to theatre.
The Finnish capital of Helsinki is a refined metropolis packed with striking examples of modern art and architecture set amid historic buildings including Senate Square and the Suomenlinna sea fortress.

Sweden offers two alluring ports of call, Stockholm and Gothenburg, which celebrate northern Europe's maritime heritage. Cameras will be at the ready for the spectacular sail in to Stockholm.

14 nights from £2456, departing from Dover on June 17.

Price includes VIP door-to-door chauffeur service, all meals and snacks, afternoon tea, 24-hour room service, entertainment, cocktail party, porterage, unlimited luggage allowance and travel insurance.
