Meyer Werft and Saga Cruises celebrate steel-cutting of new ship

Saga Cruises celebrated the steel-cutting of new ship, Spirit of Adventure, at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. The occasion marked the official start of construction on the ship which will enter service in August 2020. 

The 999-guest, 58,250gt, 236-metre ship will be a sister to the first of Saga Cruises’ boutique vessels, Spirit of Discovery, which will launch in July 2019. 

“Today marks a special moment in Saga Cruises’ history – the first steel cutting of Saga’s second purpose-built cruise ship, Spirit of Adventure,” said Nigel Blanks, chief operating officer of Saga Cruises. “Built by the same expert team at the Meyer Werft shipyard, she is a beautiful sister ship to Spirit of Discovery. With her striking design, distinctive new venues and innovative specialty restaurants, Spirit of Adventure will certainly have a unique personality and will fulfill our promise of boutique luxury, perfectly.”

Spirit of Adventure, which will have interiors designed by AD Associates, will sail from Dover in August 2020 with itineraries featuring the Norwegian Fjords, the Caribbean and the Mediterranean.
