Saga reveals images of new cruise ship

Saga Cruises has released the first images of its planned new cruise ship.

Saga Olympic, which will carry under 1,000 passengers in 540 cabins and suites, is due to enter service in summer 2019.

Facilities will include two speciality restaurants, a signature Britannia Lounge, outdoor and indoor swimming pools, a spa, sauna, treatment rooms and a beauty salon.

All cabins will have balconies with a choice of standard, deluxe, mid-ship suites and larger suites.

The vessel is to be built at the Meyer Werfrt shipyard in Papenburg, Germany and will run both ex-UK and fly-cruise itineraries.

Saga has an option on a second new-build ship from the same shipyard but no decision has yet been made.

The build is being overseen by new build director David Pickett, who previously worked at Carnival UK on launching P&O Cruises’ ships such as Britannia, Azura and Ventura.

Around 15% of the accommodation will be for passengers travelling on their own with a selection of single cabin grades.
