It is a huge privilege and delight for us to give you the chance to join to us as our guests for the historic unveiling of our magnificent new cruise ship, Spirit of Discovery.

Marking a significant moment in Saga's history, one lucky Possibilities member and your guest will have the opportunity to experience the naming ceremony of Spirit of Discovery in Dover this July.

Spirit of Discovery features the high-end design ethos, cuisine and the top levels of service you would expect in the world’s best boutique hotels.

With cuisine styles from all over the world, the new luxury ship boasts our widest-ever selection of restaurants on a par with London’s finest, from the glamour of the Grand Dining Room to oriental and seafood eateries.

Spirit of Discovery also offers plenty of space for relaxation, including two pools, a theatre and a sumptuous spa, plus the delights of a secret terrace. The spacious cabins have a real wow factor, too. Each has a balcony, giving guests your own private space, inside and out.

On arrival guests will be shown to their cabin prior to the ceremony on the quayside. Entertainment, food and drink will be available on the Quay at a Grand Afternoon Tea party before guests are asked to take a seat for the formal ceremony and blessing led by the Saga leadership team.

Spirit of Discovery's Godmother (to be announced) will formally name the ship by the traditional smashing a bottle of bubbly against the bow, before guests are invited back on board to continue the festivities over dinner, with further entertainment and an overnight stay in one of the new ship's luxury cabins.
