Newbuild for Saga Cruises

Saga Cruises (UK) and MEYER WERFT have signed a contract for the delivery of a new cruise vessel in summer 2019. Currently operating two vessels and with a long-standing tradition, the cruise line is very successful in its market segment.

With this project MEYER WERFT’s building dock I, which is presently used for block construction, will be reactivated. Therefore in 2019 three new cruise ships will be delivered to clients instead of the currently planned two ships.

MEYER WERFT has been in contact with this cruise line for many years and an agreement has now been reached for the first new build of this long standing shipping company following intense negotiations and with the decision to reactivate building dock I. Saga specialises in services for people over the age of 50. In addition to cruises and holidays Saga also provide insurance, health services and financial services.
