Cruises on all 2019 Saga Sapphire sailings are now all-inclusive – and that means free drinks, a chauffeur service within 250 miles from the port, included travel insurance, daily afternoon tea and a 24-hour room service and free wifi – what more could you ask for from a cruise!

And as if that wasn’t enough, Saga also has a ‘no-tipping’ policy so guests are assured there are no surprise extras when they sail on the chic and friendly 720-passenger boutique cruise ship.

When calling into destinations, a free shuttle bus to the town centre (if the port is more than 500 yards away) also adds to the value-for-money cruise fare.

Fine dining in the Pole to Pole restaurant is standard, and eating in the specialty Asian restaurant East to West also comes at no extra charge.

Complimentary drinks include selected wines with lunch and dinner, house-branded spirits and cocktails, draught beer and lager, plus all mixers and soft drinks, so guests can enjoy their favourite tipple in their favourite spot on the ship – be it on the deck in the sunshine, Aviators or Cooper’s Bar or the beautiful Drawing Room.

At the Beach Club, poolside treats continue with fish ‘n’ chips and ice-cream, while in The Pantry, guests can help themselves to cakes or cookies as well as quality tea, coffee and hot chocolate 24 hours a day.

Whether in port or at sea, guests can tuck into a daily afternoon tea with sandwiches, cakes, scones, jam and cream while a pianist plays favourite melodies in the Britannia Lounge.

All entertainment, lectures and classes are also complimentary on-board Saga Sapphire.
