once completed the new class ship will be 55,900 gross tons and carry less than 1,000 passengers. The yet to be named ship will have 540 all balcony cabins and 20% of staterooms will be able to cater for single cruisers. Saga Cruises has already revealed the ship will feature single-sitting dining, observation lounge, signature Britannia lounge and all the usual pools, bars and restaurants expected on a new ship.

New build director David Pickett, said:

“In fact, the whole ship has the ‘wow’ factor. It is being built at the Meyer Werft shipyard, in Hamburg, and at the moment we’re heavily focused on technical design, the engine, generator and propulsion plant; everything to make sure we deliver a practical, working ship of the highest specification.”

“The Britannia Lounge is going to be a magnificent signature space set across two decks. I know how important this area will be to our loyal guests, so we’ve worked hard to ensure it doesn’t disappoint.”

“It’s been our aim to listen to current passengers during consultations and get as many of their wants and desires into the new ship while future-proofing the build, so it can operate for many, many years ahead.”
