Meet the 2020 Sagababes!

Supermodel Naomi Campbell turns 50 in 2020 along with a host of celebrities who become eligible to join to Saga’s holidays and cruises

Supermodel Naomi Campbell reaches her landmark 50th birthday on May 22, putting her on another fashionable runway – eligibility to join Saga’s holidays and cruises. 

Naomi, who has been one of the world’s top five models for more than three decades, has no worries about reaching her half-century. She told The Guardian newspaper (November 16, 2019): “I’m not afraid of being 50. I’m looking forward to a good old dance, too.

“I want to make sure I dance the night away, surrounded by people I love and who have been with me through thick and thin. I just want us to be in a beautiful place I have chosen.”

Wherever Naomi decides to celebrate, we at Saga wish her the happiest of birthdays and congratulate her, too, on the projects she has been working on in Africa over the last 25 years, encouraging the fashion industry to invest in fashion colleges in Ghana, Nigeria and Kenya.

For fun, the Saga team has chosen holidays to recommend for Naomi and other A-listers who hit their BIG 50 in 2020!

 

Naomi Campbell
May 22 - 
Pride of Africa tour

Naomi enjoys sunshine and loves Africa, so we suggest the 16-night Pride of Africa tour covering Zimbabwe, Botswana and South Africa which features a journey on an elegant vintage train, game safaris in Chobe and Hwange National Parks and sundowner cruises on the Chobe and Zambezi rivers.
16 nights from £4,799pp with a departure on May 2 or June 22

Louis Theroux
May 20 - 
Greenland Explorer cruise

Broadcaster Louis Theroux does not shy from difficult subjects, but he has admitted being a ‘nervous flyer’ so we could recommend Louis joins new ship Spirit of Discovery to enjoy luxury travel at sea. The all-inclusive Greenland Explorer would offer plenty of opportunities to meet interesting people, including a choir of Innuit children, plus a wealth of wildlife in stunning landscapes.
21 nights departing June 16, 2020 departing Dover from £5,856pp

Matt Damon
October 8 - Wonders of Iceland tour
The Good Will Hunting actor is also a co-founder of the charity Water.org which pioneers solutions to give people access to safe water in countries such as Ethiopia. Water.org has given millions of people access to safe water and sanitation through affordable financing so the Saga team thinks Matt would enjoy new five-day Wonders of Iceland tour to tap into ideas for pure drinking water, one of Iceland’s natural resources.
Five days from £1,195 with departures from June 2020 to September 2021

Mariah Carey
March 27 - 
Flora and Fauna of Costa Rica tour

The Guinness Book of World Records lists Mariah as the ‘Songbird Supreme’ due to her five-octave vocal range and style. We think she would love listening to the amazing birdlife in San Gerado do Dota in a deep valley surrounded by the Talamanca mountains, to watch and listen to the wonderful birdlife during the coast to coast tour of Costa Rica.
12 nights all-inclusive from £3,099 pp departs November 10, 2020

Alan Shearer
August 13 - 
Rhythm of the Caribbean cruises on Spirit of Adventure

The former England and Newcastle footballer loves to play a round of golf while he is on a sunshine holiday so for something different, he could practise his swing on The Fairway of Spirit of Adventure’s virtual golf course at sea. Whether Alan wants to play on his own or join a tournament, this state-of-the-art digital simulator allows guests to try some of the world’s most famous courses. It’s a sporting experience that’s certainly ‘above par’!

31 nights from £7,119 departs Southampton on November 15, 2020

Uma Thurman
April 29 - 
Gorillas of Uganda
Uma Thurman rose to prominence with her performance in Quentin Tarantino's 1994 film Pulp Fiction. Off-screen, the actress is an animal lover and joined the Rhino Rescue Project in Africa to help relocate the threatened black rhinoceros. She said her experience with the animals was "spiritual and surreal" so we think she would love our Gorillas of Uganda trip, an active small group tour to observe these wonderful rare creatures.

11 nights from £4,099pp departing Jan 11, 25, March 7, June 13 or October 10

Warwick Davis
February 3 - 
Jersey Island Escape at The Merton Hotel

English actor Warwick Davis says he loves a holiday on home turf and as a child he used to go caravanning with his family. The Saga team would entice him to try our Jersey Island Escape the best of the British food, beaches – and a digital detox!
