I think over the years most pre conceptions for Saga is that they are floating retirement homes as they are for guests over the age of 50. However in recent weeks I have been looking over the details of what they have to offer on their new ships and I have been very impressed. So I really cannot wait to get on board and really find out what Saga are all about.
Keep up to speed by following my travels on facebook and I will be sure to tell you all about my trip on my return.
Until next time
