The delivery took place in Emden on 29 September 2020 and comes a month after the river conveyance of the newbuilding.

Despite all the adversities in the last few months caused by the corona pandemic, we were able to complete both the construction in Papenburg and the testing and commis-sioning of the ship within a manageable time frame,” Thomas Weigend, Managing Director of Meyer Werft, said.

The 58,250 GT Spirit of Adventure is the second of two new cruise ships built for Saga. The first unit, Spirit of Discovery, was delivered to the company in 2019.

Both cruise ships feature a length of 236 metres, a width of 31.2 metres and are able to accommodate 999 passengers.

The sister ships are characterised by an eco-friendly and resource-saving design, according to Meyer Werft.
