Saga Holidays is a UK travel operator with an in-house cruise line. The company will operate two mid-size "Classic Cruising" ships in 2015:

photoSaga Pearl II (formerly the Arkona and Astoria, shown at right)--was built in 1981 and had a three-month,  20 million overhaul before joining the Saga fleet in 2010.

The line's newest "classic" ship is Saga Sapphire, which was built as Hapag-Lloyd's luxury cruiser Europa in 1981 and most recently sailed as the Bleu de France.

Saga Holidays caters exclusively to travelers over the age of 50, and most of its customers are from the UK.
