Captain Spekman’s Mystery Cruise - Saga Pearl II
Will Captain Kees Spekman sail left or right from Dover on the Saga Pearl II’s mystery cruise?

Passengers on this all-inclusive sea adventure will be left guessing as the itinerary will only be revealed day by day.
Captain Spekman’s morning announcements are always informative and cheery but on the mystery cruise guests will be hanging on his every word to hear which country they will visiting each day.

Passengers have been known to bring compasses and attempt to log on to shipping websites but all electronic charts will be switched off to ensure the destinations are a well-kept secret.

And it will be no good trying to extract information from the crew! They will not be able to spill the beans as only Captain Spekman’s right-hand men and women will know the answer - and they are sworn to secrecy.

Captain Spekman has, however, revealed a few clues; he plans seven ports of call, in at least four countries, and three will be maiden ports for Saga Pearl II.

18 nights from £2518, departing from Dover on August 20, 2015.

Price includes half-day excursions in every port, travel to and from Dover, all meals, all house-branded spirits, draught beer and lager, cocktails and soft drinks, entertainment and activities, 24-hour room service, welcome cocktail party, afternoon tea, all gratuities, porterage, travel insurance and cancellation cover.

Vienna has been chosen as the port of departure but after that passengers will not know where they will wake up every morning.
