Saga Cruises have announced that their first ever new build cruise ship, which is to launch in summer 2019, will be named Spirit of Discovery.
The new 55,900 gross tonne cruise ship will measure 234 metres long and have a width of 30.8 metres. The ship has been designed to carry less than 1,000 passengers in some 540 cabins and suites. More than 100 cabins on board will be dedicated for solo travellers.
Robin Shaw, Chief Executive, Saga Cruises, said:
“We have great pleasure in announcing our new ship will be named Spirit of Discovery. The name Spirit of Discovery evokes the adventurous nature and new experiences that cruise customers desire. Key to the whole design process has been our customer insight. We know they want to experience new things in a luxurious, small ship environment. Our new ship’s itineraries will take customers to fresh, new destinations and will include more overnight stays in key ports.”
The new build cruise ship is to be constructed at the Meyer-Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. Saga Cruises have an option for a second ship, which would be delivered in 2021.
