Saga Cruises have confirmed the Saga Pearl II will embark on its final Saga Cruises voyage in 2019.

The 1981-built Saga Pearl II at just 18,627 gross tonnes and carrying 512 passengers was originally launched into service as the Astor. Her final voyage, will take passengers to South Africa, Gambia, Namibia and Mozambique.

The  Spirit of Discovery will be  joining the fleet as the line’s first newbuild in summer 2019 and will  sail alongside the Saga Sapphire.


Malcolm says: Another small-‘classic’ ship finds herself fleet-less. Let’s hope another cruise line buys her and saves her from the scrap heap of Alang.  Her sister is also amazingly charming.

    Well spotted Edwin. The funnels are completely different and I’ve cruises on her sister (a charming ship) – so no excuses! Thanks for noticing.
