NEW: Saga's totally tropical Caribbean fly-cruises
Three choices in November and December 2016
featuring fabulous tropical island resort stays
Saga guests can choose their perfect 2016 Caribbean cruise from a new collection of all-inclusive fly-cruises on Saga Pearl II.
In a move to offer more flexibility, guests can choose to either sail from Southampton and fly back or fly out and sail back to Southampton.
Two of the fly-cruises include luxury hotel resort stays, in either Tobago or Antigua, offering the chance to soak up more of the laid-back Caribbean vibe.
The all-inclusive cruises feature a UK travel package with transport to and from Southampton or London Gatwick, selected house-brand alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks plus wine included with lunch and dinner.
