Saga Sapphire passengers can take a ‘sneak peak’ at Saga Cruises new ship which is still under construction at Meyer Werft shipyard Papenburg, close to Hamburg.

The new 6-night Easter Getaway 2018 cruise includes a tour of the shipyard to enable guests to see the progress of the new ship, Spirit of Discovery, and learn about its construction and design.
