 Saga Rose

Built in 1965 as Norske Amerikalinje's Sagafjord, this classic liner was operated by Cunard Line for many years, before being retired in 1996. It is now operated by British Saga Cruises exclusively for passengers over the age of 50, Saga Rose offers a classic and well-run cruise experience in comfortable old-world surroundings. This can be seen in the way that it represents a highly mannered society with a strong code of behavior, more so than you will find ashore in Britain, yet it's neither stuffy nor overly formal in dress. In spite of its relatively small size by today's standards, the 24,474-ton Saga Rose is imposing, aided by its long upwardly raked bow, pleasingly high superstructure amidships and its large single funnel sporting Saga's traditional black and yellow colors. The Saga Rose has a crew of three hundred and fifty, has eight decks and carries five hundred and eighty seven passengers.
