Saga has added four round-Britain cruises to its summer 2023 schedule.

The cruises last between six and eight nights and coincide with events such as the Rolex Fastnet Yacht Race and the Tall Ships Race and are currently available to book with a 35 per cent discount.

They first of the new cruises departs from Tilbury on Spirit of Discovery on July 16, 2023 travelling along Britain’s south coast for eight nights taking in Fowey, Falmouth, the Isles of Scilly, Portsmouth and the start of the Rolex Fastnet Yacht Race in Cowes, before finishing in Dover.

On July 24, 2023 Spirit of Discovery will head to the Shetland Islands. Departing Dover, the cruise will head to Invergordon and Scrabster, gateway to the Scottish Highlands. It will also visit Lerwick as it hosts the Tall Ships race before returning to Dover.

Spirit of Adventure will depart from Dover on August 28, 2023 along the Cornish coastline. She will visit the Isles of Scilly, Falmouth, Fowey and Portland, with excursions to  Tresco Abbey Gardens and a scenic drive along the Dorset coast included.

On September 3, 2023, Spirit of Adventure sets off for a full circumnavigation of Great Britain. Starting and finishing in Dover, this cruise will showcase the varied beauty of Britain’s coastlines from the sea.

Nigel Blanks, CEO of Saga Cruises, said: “Our round-Britain cruises always prove popular with guests. As they’re quite short, they’re a great way for newcomers to cruising to find out if it’s for them, and these new ones will take in some fantastic sights from yacht and tall ship races to the incredible coastline of Britain, which is really best seen from the sea.”
