The Marella Explorer 2 is an adult only cruise ship, with a larger premium Verandah. But water stations outside the cabins and USB sockets beside the bed so you don't need to carry chargers is a little glimpse of sense for the now, not the future.  It has a larger sunbathing area than normal on this Century Class ship,...

The Aurora's very last cruise as a family ship saw it covered in snow with many guests staying inside. The sea got rough but it ploughed through it gracefully with few changes, the Headliners stage shows were cancelled as they could not dance as the ship moved about, but Elektra, the violin duo played (not in heels!).

The idea is to keep the smaller special style of cruising, but add some of the essential features the larger more family style ships have brought to the industry. That does not...
If you are a fan of Adults only cruising, and SAGA sounds old, then just take a moment while we convince you to rethink, because sexy new Virgin Voyages is Adult Only. SAGA are for 50 and above, adults only and are building two new state of the art cruise ships focussed on people just like you (and us)...
We are losing another small ship and there are just a few cruises left on which to sail on her. The SAGA PEARL 2 is sailing its way around the world for the last time, an amazing African coast farewell cruise. Now it is hello to the new ships. It is as rumour has it, still up for sale...
