Saga Cruises will christen Spirit of Adventure, its new cruise ship, in Portsmouth UK on August 19, 2020, marking the first time that the UK cruise port has hosted an official christening ceremony.

Portsmouth has been chosen as the christening location because of its maritime heritage, a beautiful harbour and ongoing regeneration plans, including a terminal transformation project and a significant berth extension.

Currently under construction at Meyer Werft Shipyard Papenburg, Spirit of Adventure is Saga's 2nd newbuild - with sistership Spirit of Discovery (2019-built).
