Saga Reveals New Spirit of the Rhine

When Saga launched their new river cruise ship Spirit of Discovery earlier this year, we already knew the cruise line had her sister ship planned for 2020. The cruise line announced ANOTHER new river ship to set sail in Spring of 2021, Spirit of the Rhine. The ship will be built by Vahali, a Dutch manufacturer with nearly 100 years of shipbuilding experience.

Using more than 60 years of insight gained from providing products and services exclusively to the over-50’s, Saga will be using the inspiration of their boutique ocean cruises to design the new build ship which will echo this luxury styling. Most cabins will have a French balcony and floor-to-ceiling windows for the best possible views. 

The ship will also feature a modest gym, a lounge with bar, a separate library area, a main restaurant as well as a reservation-only restaurant with show cooking, a large sun deck, jacuzzi, barbecue and extensive seating area. Wifi will be free for all guests.
