  1. Hi Hermione, How many formals have you had on your 14 night cruise and how strictly are they enforced? Can men wear a jacket and tie? Are the beds hard or soft or somewhere in between? 😁
  2. I remember that there was a 'pop-up' restaurant with waiter service on the aft deck of QV. It was dependent on the weather to some extent 😁 We used it a couple of times on one trip but I don't have any record of the menu. We could be going back 2 years or so. Sorry I can't be of any more help.
  3. We missed the ports due to storms as I recall. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2854595/Popular-holiday-destination-Canary-Islands-battered-80mph-winds-freak-storm-uproots-trees-sends-waves-crashing-beaches.html Sensible, safe decision by the captain.
  4. Just booked my included excursions and even though cart total was £0 I was still required to enter a card. I was then emailed a receipt for £0 🤣 Normally we book private tours but as my cruise was upgraded to O life ultimate after we booked, it would have been rude not to book them. We have visited all of the ports before but found new things to do in some and have chosen to revisit others.
  5. Think it is only only on the Northern lights cruise, although my partner who has sailed with Saga to the Antarctic remembers that all the landing tours on the peninsular were included as was the red jacket.
  6. I saw this and couldn't understand why they only awarded fitness and recreation a 3. Is it because there is no rock climbing wall, flow rider and ice skating rink? The ship has an indoor pool, gym and the usual deck games, the score seems on the low side to me.
  7. In the end we used a combination of shuttle bus and taxi to get to and from the pickup point. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Eoin 🙂
  8. They included a “Chasing the Lights” tour in February and a warm, bright red jacket too.
  9. Yes, collect luggage and then take them outside to your return ride.
  10. I think if you are taking 4 cases plus hand luggage it would be best to let Saga know in advance.
  11. I suppose you could go on to chat online or give them a ring and ask them to stop sending brochures? At least with email lists it is usually easy to unsubscribe 🙂
  12. Yes there is decaffeinated coffee on board. It seems to me that you need to give your TA the boot. Even though we booked our last cruise through a TA any questions or requests through our TA were actioned promptly. It is no fault of Saga that your TA is not doing his job.
  13. We are currently on Queen Victoria in Iceland. They have a step test for the tenders. There are a large number of elderly cruisers, many using sticks and wheelchairs. Certainly at least as many relative to the number of passengers that I have observed on Saga. I have only taken 2 Saga cruises one a port intensive 4 night cruise and the other a 15 night Notthern lights cruise. On neither did I witness confusion or deshabille in regards to my fellow passengers. Many passengers whichever line you travel on, will generally be retired and therefore more elderly. Fortunately reaching the grand old age of 50 doesn't signal an immediate decline in your faculties.
  14. Laura is one of the entertainment hosts 😀
