Saga Cruises is offering customers a chance to see its new ship being built during one of its 2018 itineraries.

Guests will get a ‘sneak peek’ at the Spirit of Discovery which is currently under construction at the Meyer Werft shipyard near Hamburg.

The visit is available on the Saga Sapphire’s six-night Easter Getaway cruise in March next year which also visits Falmouth, Guernsey and Bremen, Germany.

Customers will be able to tour the shipyard and learn about the construction and design of the line’s first purpose-built ship.

The ship will carry less than 1,000 guests and include a choice of specialty restaurants, a selection of bars, indoor and outdoor pools, a spa, a library, an observation lounge and a theatre.

The sailing departs Southampton on March 28 with prices starting from £968.
