Cruise Ship Jobs - Saga Cruises Profile

Saga Cruises is a British-owned cruise line specialized in voyages exclusively for mature passengers. Saga cruises operates two classic cruise liners which would have been considered relatively large ships in the 1970's, but compared to the modern cruise vessels are small and seductively old-fashioned. These are gracefully looking ships with a classic ocean liners profile. The 661-passenger Saga Ruby started her carrier with Norwegian America Line, then it was purchased by Cunard Line in 1983, renamed Vistafjord and later Caronia. Vistafjord was sold to Saga Cruises fleet in 2004 and started cruising under the name Saga Ruby. The second ship in Saga Cruises fleet - Saga Pearl II was originally ordered by Hadag Cruise Line - a German cruise operator and named Astoria. Later the ship was sold to a South African company - Safmarine, which used Astoria for voyages between Soth Africa and Europe. In late 2009 the ship went through a 20 million pounds refit in Swansea, Wales and as of the beginning of 2010 is sailing for Saga Cruises under the name Saga Pearl II. The atmosphere aboard these two cruise ships is very much British, representing a highly mannered society with a strong code of behavior.
