SAGA SAPPHIRE – goodbye to another small ship, Hello to the new ones

SAGA SAPPHIRE – small ship, big cruise

Built in 1981 The Sapphire had an extensive refit in Italy from November 2011 to March 2012, the vessel was renamed Saga Sapphire. Work included refurbishing the interior, creating new cabins (including additional balcony accommodation to her superstructure), an overhaul of the machinery, also repainting and maintenance of the hull. Now she is a very popular ship with SAGA CRUISES. Her past names have been exciting, MS Europa, MS SuperStar Europe, MS Superstar Aries, MS Holiday Dream and Bleu de France. She has been and still is quite a lady!

The Sapphire could offer no more than 720 passengers and 415 offices and crew, fantastic attention.
