"SAGA SAPPHIRE" inaugural cruise

The latest addition to SAGA CRUISES, the 1981 built "SAGA SAPPHIRE" is starting her maiden voyage with SAGA on the 26th of March 2012, the ship will set sail from Southampton on a 23 nights voyage. "SAGA SAPPHIRE" was built in Germany by BREMEN VULKAN as the EUROPA, she was quite possibly the most sophisticated ship at sea when new. The ship is undergoing a refit before starting her new life with SAGA CRUISES a company focusing on traditional classic cruising. Images, the ship with the new SAGA livery, taken from SAGA's webpage, the full itinerary for her maiden cruise and in Lisbon during the 80's, a delightful passenger ship.

  2. It's such a fantastic ship. I had the pleasure of beeing onboard for some hours when she was Bleu de France, and she is just amazing.

  3. Hi Daniel

    I have never been on board, saw her many times in the 80's in Lisbon, what a splendour, I can't wait to see her with the new livery, thanks for your comment

    Take care
