British-based cruise line Saga Cruises has revealed the name for its upcoming cruise ship coming in 2019.

Saga Cruises first brand new cruise ship which is coming in Summer 2019 is to be named “Spirit of Discover”. It is the first time the cruise line has ordered a new ship and will take Saga into a new era of cruising. The new class ship will carry just under 1,000 guests so the intimate and personal experience of Saga Cruises will continue.

Robin Shaw, chief executive, Saga Cruises, said:

“We have great pleasure in announcing our new ship will be named “Spirit of Discovery”.

In September 2015 we announced that we were to build our first cruise ship – we’re still on a high from that news. With the design nearing completion, today’s announcement is the next step on this exciting journey.

“The name “Spirit of Discovery” evokes the adventurous nature and new experiences that cruise customers desire.

Key to the whole design process has been our customer insight. We know they want to experience new things in a luxurious, small ship environment. Our new ship’s itineraries will take customers to fresh, new destinations and will include more overnight stays in key ports.”

Spirit of Discovery will also cater towards single cruisers with over a 100 cabins catered for them. The ship will be built by Meyer Werft in Germany at 55,900 gross tons, 234 meters long and 30.8 meters wide.
