The 58,250 gross tonne Spirit of Adventure has arrived in Emden, Germany having successfully completed its conveyance of the Ems River from the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg.
Spirit of Adventure is the second brand new cruise ship built at Meyer Werft shipyard for Saga Cruises, following the launch in Spirit of Discovery in 2019.

The new ship was carefully maneuvered backwards from the shipyard along the Ems River with the assistance of two tugboats. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic there was a significantly reduced number of people on board.
The 999-passenger Spirit of Adventure will undertake technical sea trials before its planned delivery to Saga Cruises later this year. The ship was originally due to be launched and named in Portsmouth in August 2020 but this was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
