Saga’s five-night Edinburgh Fringe at Sea sails in summer 2018 and the festival itself features a variety of performances, comedy, dance, opera and theatre in Scotland’s vibrant capital city.

Saga Sapphire moors overnight in Leith, so guests can immerse themselves in the atmosphere of the Edinburgh Fringe where many famous comedians started their careers, including Rowan Atkinson, Billy Connolly, Ben Elton and Jo Brand.

Guests can also join an optional tour to celebrate the last night of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and watch the fireworks and light show. The cruise also includes an overnight call to Newcastle so art aficionados can opt for a city tour to see the Sage Gateshead performing arts venue designed by Norman Foster’s architectural team and visit the nearby Baltic Flour Mill, which has been converted into one of the largest modern art centres outside London. Clients who want to go further afield can choose from optional excursions to Alnwick Castle, Hadrian’s Wall or Cragside gardens. 

A five-night option leads in at £976 for an August 22, 2018 departure and includes UK travel packages to and from Dover, all meals and entertainment, a choice of table wines at lunch and dinner, afternoon tea, 24-hour room service, a welcome cocktail party, unlimited tea and coffee in selected venues, free Wi-Fi, all on-board gratuities, porterage, a free shuttle bus to the nearest town centre, optional travel insurance and additional cancellation rights, or a discount if the passenger has their own insurance. Prices are based on two sharing the lowest available Inside cabin grade.
