Saga Names Spirit of Discovery's Suites

Sidney De Haan Suite Bedroom

Saga Cruises has announced that the Spirit of Discovery’s suites have been named after British Isles Shipping Forecast areas: Bailey, Fair Isle, FitzRoy, Hebrides ,Humber, Lundy, Thames and Trafalgar.

In addition are four top suites to honour inspiring names in Saga’s history including founder Sidney de Haan.

Saga’s chief operating officer Nigel Blanks said that "naming the suites with an original, British maritime theme was one goal but we also wanted to recognise our heritage and the important names in Saga Cruises’ own history."

Blanks added: “The Shipping Forecast’s areas are heard four times a day on the radio – but on Spirit of Discovery they will be ever present!

“Saga Rose and Saga Ruby were Saga Cruises’ first two ships and are still fondly remembered by our guests so The Rose Suite and The Ruby Suite have been named in their honour.

“The Sidney de Haan Suite and The Joseph Meyer Suite salute our founder and the new relationship we have developed with the Meyer Werft shipyard, in Papenburg, where Spirit of Discovery is being built. We are working with Bernard Meyer, who is the seventh generation owner at the family-run shipyard which started in 1873 when Joseph Meyer built the company’s first iron ship.”

Blanks added: “Our suites will enjoy a butler service and will be among the finest afloat – each with its own character and personality, sumptuous furnishings, fabrics and fittings as well as bespoke artwork. At 730sq ft The Sidney de Haan Suite and The Joseph Meyer Suite feature separate living rooms plus bathrooms to impress with twin sinks, a shower and a separate bathtub.”
