About this cruise

Head to Dover to board Saga Sapphire on Wednesday 22nd August 2018.

This cruise is timed to visit Scotland to coincide with the final night of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo 2018. Tickets aren't included but an optional shore excursion can be booked (subject to availability - remember this is the last - and arguably most popular - night of the Tattoo) which includes return transport and tickets to the show.

Those who miss out fear not as Saga Sapphire will host its own Fringe themed experience on the ship. Festival acts will appear at various locations around the ship, and there'll also be a late-night buffet, a Scottish gala dinner, and a party band.

So you know, the map above shows point-to-point lines which may cross land. Don't worry, your cruise ship will not sprout legs and run across dry land. Instead it's water all the way! Mapping is approximate, and the scheduled times are estimates. Your trip is subject to change as, occasionally, operators have to alter itineraries due to bad weather or unforeseen events.
