Saga extends cruise options

Monday 2 June 2014

This summer, Saga Travel, the holidays and cruise specialist for the over-50s, will be able to offer its customers cruises provided by other operators in addition to their own highly popular Saga Sapphire and Saga Pearl II. 

The portfolio of selected cruises from a number of different partners shows that Saga recognises the importance of providing a variety of different cruising experiences that will appeal to a greater number of today’s over-50s.  With more to be announced, Saga’s first cruise partners include Azamara Club Cruises, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines and Celebrity Cruises.  Booking any of these cruises through Saga will provide people with the added extras that Saga cruisers have come to expect - such as door-to-door car service, a cruise escort and any necessary visas, along with included travel insurance.  Overall, by combining their extensive travel experience, the partnerships will be able to offer some wonderful cruise or cruise and stay holiday options. 

Robin Shaw, chief executive, Saga Cruises, commented:

“This is an exciting time for Saga Travel and this venture allows us to reach out to more people.  We will now be able to offer even greater choice to today’s over 50s. With cruises on ships big and small, sailings to all four corners of the globe, from exotic fly cruises or embarkation points in the UK, there’s lots of choice.  By booking any cruise with Saga, customers have the security of knowing we will offer a great experience at excellent value.”
