Entertainment

The Saga Sapphire has plenty onboard to keep her passengers entertained. From the energetic Britannia Lounge to the panoramic views from the Drawing Room, there's an area to suit all moods.

The Beach Club

Visit The Beach Club, where you'll find beach huts and a decidedly British seaside vibe - it's the perfect place to soak up the sun!

Take a splash in the large outdoor pool, or sit and relax on one of the many deck chairs.

Grab an ice cream or a handful or sweets from the counter, or enjoy a gourmet spin on the classic British dish, fish and chips!

View from the Top

During the day, soak up the sun on one of the may sunloungers at View from the Top, or relax in one of the two hot tubs.

In the evening, sit back and watch a film under the stars on the big screen as it becomes an open-air cinema.

Britannia Lounge

During the day the Britannia Lounge is the venue for dance classes, quizzes, music recitals and much more.

And although, she's every inch a modern ship, Saga Sapphire still retains the finest of cruising traditions - the lounge hosts a tempting afternoon tea each day.

But it's as the sun sets that this area is transformed, as singers, instrumentalists and the ship's own resident theatre company take to the stage for dazzling evening entertainment.

Cooper's Bar

Unwind with friends in Cooper's Bar, styled as a tribute to the wit of comedian Tommy Cooper, with fez shaped lampshades and cushions brandishing his one-liners.

Plus, you'll be taken on a trip down memory lane to the classic humour of yesteryear with our picture gallery.

Aviator Lounge

The Aviator Lounge is located midship and offers striking themed decor dedicated to the heroes of our skies.

Drawing Room

If you're looking to put your feet up for some real 'me time' surrounded by all your home comforts, then head up to the spacious Drawing Room.

With plush seating and a larder stocked with homemade treats, you can sit back and watch the ever-changing views from the triple-aspect windows.

Library

Enjoy quiet reflection in The Library - the perfect opportunity and atmosphere for a bit of escapism or to research your next port of call
