Saga launches free cruise guide

Saga cruises has worked with Cruise Expert, Jane Archer, to produce a free guide to cruising.

The guide is available to download from the Saga website and includes answers to questions such as:

  • How to pick the right cruise – what destination is right for you
  • What to wear and what to pack
  • Cruising tips for solo travellers
  • Life on board ships
  • Shore excursions
  • The top 10 destinations for new cruisers to try

Cruise expert Jane Archer says, "Trying to find your first cruise can be very confusing as there is so much choice in terms of the style and size of ships on offer, and the many wonderful places you can visit on a cruise.

“This guide has been written to help dispel some of the myths about cruising, put first-timers on the right track and hopefully inspire those who have already discovered the joys of a cruise holiday to spread their wings and visit some new and exciting destinations."

PR Manager for Saga Cruises, Naomi Thornton also added “For a quarter* of over 50s cruising would be their choice of holiday if they had no limitations (i.e. time, money or health). The popularity of taking a cruise is also on the increase with “Ship passenger days” up 7% to 336,000. It’s fast becoming a favourite choice of holiday for todays over 50s”.
