Do you have to be over 50 for Saga cruises and holidays?

Have you ever considered the cruises, holidays and services offered by Saga, but weren’t sure if they’re intended only for older people? Here, we answer that question and look into what Saga Holidays offer, from classic European city breaks to tropical getaways and peaceful retreats.

Who are Saga Holidays designed for?

Saga and their sister brand Titan Tours offer a varied collection of itineraries for anyone over 50. It’s globally recognised for its high-quality approach to hospitality, a testament to its 70 years’ experience. 

With this in mind, Saga Holidays are designed for travellers aged 50 and over, curious to see more of the world while enjoying the comforts of premium facilities and accommodation.

What Saga Holidays offer

A Saga Holiday can take you to some amazing places. From romantic river cruises through the Douro Valley to epic solo ventures by train through the Rocky Mountains. Saga also has close partnerships with fantastic hotels throughout Europe so you can choose between a lively location or a more tranquil setting for your next holiday. 

If it’s an ocean cruise you’re looking for, Saga has two prestigious vessels – Spirit of Adventure and Spirit of Discovery – that set sail from the UK. Every booking offers a chauffeur service so you can travel from your front door right to the ship with ease and without the worry of flying. Another bonus of a Saga cruise is its all-inclusive offering, allowing guests to make the most of the onboard bars, cafés and restaurants. 

Saga also offers tailor-made experiences that can be personalised to your preferences. The planned itineraries include independent tours to Canada, self-drive roadtrips in Costa Rica and small group escorted tours like the Northern Thailand Tuk Tuk adventure. 

*Note that Saga tours work in conjunction with Saga’s sister company Titan Travel

Activities and excursions

If you have a particular passion for gardening or you’re an avid birdwatcher, Saga has designed Special Interest holidays. These trips include everything you need for a truly memorable holiday that will also bring you closer to the thing you love. 

Every cruise also includes plenty of excursions so you can discover the local area, either at your own leisure or accompanied by a guide. Onboard, you can find a full programme of live music, entertainment and talks, including lectures from guest speakers, theatre productions, recitals, craft classes, activities and outside deck games.

All hotel holidays also include a guided orientation walk and live entertainment

Social Aspect 

Whether you’re travelling alone, in a group or with a companion, Saga Holidays are a perfect opportunity to meet other fellow voyagers. 

As well as excursions, there are plenty of onboard activities on the river cruises and ocean crossings that will give you an opportunity to meet other guests. Plus, Saga organises many get-togethers to encourage people to mingle. At a singles lunch or drinks party, you can meet like-minded independent holidaymakers. Saga can also find you a companion for a day ashore and a dance partner for those moments when the band strikes up. 

It’s also worth noting, meals on board a Saga cruise work on a free-seating basis so you can choose to dine solo or join a group.
