Originally launched as the Vistafjord in 1973, prior to becoming the Saga Ruby it spent many years sailing as the Caronia for Cunard Line. After rechristening the ship the Saga Ruby, it went an extensive facelift to the tune of about $30 million and certainly does not show her age with onboard decor ranging from contemporary to sleek and even minimalist. All cabins feature a bathroom with a shower (most also have a bathtub), a wardrobe with drawer space, a dressing table or writing desk and chair, a flat-screen television, a DVD player, radio, telephone, air conditioning and a hair dryer; twin beds convert to a king-size upon request. The 25,000-ton, 655-passenger Saga Ruby boasts first-class entertainment, friendly and attentive service, and fine cuisine. However, it is important to note that in order to sail onboard Saga Holidays' Saga Ruby, passengers must be over the age of 50, so it's a great get-away, for those with grown children.
