The Spirit of Adventure will be delivered in June

Final preparations for
Spirit of Discovery’s June delivery

The 999-passenger Spirit of Discovery, soon to be delivered to Saga Cruises, has been floated out from the building hall at Meyer Werft Shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.

Sea trials are to be conducted early in June, the ship’s delivery is scheduled for June 20th and its naming ceremony will take place in the UK channel port of Dover on July 5th before the inaugural cruise starts five days later.    
The 58,250gt vessel is 236m long and just over 31m wide. Its delivery will come just a few days after the keel-laying of the Spirit of Adventure, the next ship to be built for the British cruise line.
The Spirit of Discovery will fly the Red Ensign and be registered in London. A number of British companies have supplied components for the ship which will feature more than 400 pieces of original British art.
Spirit of Discovery has been meticulously designed for our customers and to epitomise Saga’s unique British boutique cruising concept,” said Nigel Blanks, Saga Cruises’ COO.
