Join a ‘mini cruise’ to the Continent

In addition to our longer itineraries, we've introduced a selection of ‘mini cruises’ – ideal for trying a Saga cruise for the first time at a great-value price, and perfect if you want to combine a cruise with visits to friends and family in Britain.

Bruges - the city of chocolate

So much to discover

Hop aboard our welcoming small ships for just four, five or six nights and you’ll be surprised by how much you can see and do!

There are so many interesting itineraries to choose from, whether you want to see a master Belgian chocolatier at work in Bruges, explore the cobbled streets of Amsterdam or enjoy a festive cruise shopping for gifts in famous Christmas Markets.

Coastal France

Coastal France

Discover the ports on the north French coast and visit ancient Quimper, rustic Locronan, one of the “the most beautiful villages in France”, and to try the apple calvados brandy at a local distillery.

If you’re a history fan, we offer several tours of the poignant war sites of the region, such as the D-Day beaches, the town of Arromanches, and a tour of the Bayeaux Tapestry museum.


Glorious Guernsey

On selected ‘mini cruises’ we make a welcome stop at Guernsey, a Crown dependency of Britain.

Spend the day in the glorious harbor of St Peter Port, head inland to the tiny yet fascinating Little Chapel, or if you’re feeling energetic, head for the hills on a walk with an expert local guide along the clifftops, from where on a clear day you can spot the neighboring Channel Islands of Alderney, Sark, Herm and Jersey.
