We’re delighted to announce the addition of a second river ship, Spirit of the Danube, to Saga’s fleet of custom-built ships.

Launching in 2022, she promises the same levels of comfort, service and value as her sister-ship Spirit of the Rhine. We're also using the latest engine technology to significantly reduce emissions, ensuring that our ship is one of the greenest on the rivers.

This new ship will cruise down the Danube which flows through 10 countries and passes some of the most dramatic and varied scenery in Europe. Our collection will showcase its finest sights and most famous cities along with some lesser-known gems too. With up to five included excursions on every cruise, you’ll be able to see, learn or do something new every day.

Like her sister-ship, Spirit of the Danube has been designed and built exclusively for our guests. Panoramic windows enhance the space, elegance and magnificent views from every public room, while a large sun deck complete with hot tub and separate terrace with alfresco barbecue offer further temptations outside.

All cabins are elegantly styled and beautifully appointed, complete with en suite bathroom and walk-in shower. Cabins on the Main and Upper decks have private French balconies for fresh air and floor-to-ceiling views, while large picture windows in the Lower deck cabins provide natural light and ever-changing views.


Every feature of Spirit of the Danube has been individually designed for Saga guests. This includes a panoramic lounge and bar, an inviting library, fitness area, and an expansive, shaded sun deck with a hot tub and alfresco barbecue, all with levels of service that are second to none.
