Saga Sapphire UK Debut
The brand new Saga Cruises flagship, Saga Sapphire, arrived in Southampton on the 26th March 2012.  She had undergone a six month major refit in Palermo after she ended her Bleu De France career, and, due to yard strikes, she wasn't ready for her first fare paying passengers on the 26th.  Instead she arrived for 7am that day, docked in Mayflower Terminal and her new maiden voyage would be on the 2nd April.
It was lovely to see her again after more than twenty-four years.  To see photos of her as Europa, click here and maiden voyage as Saga Sapphire, click here.
