we are booked on Saga Spirit of Discovery on Feb 16 2020. - Norways night Skies
We have seen the Northern lights several times with P&O (and are booked on Aurora in 2019)- although Discovery is more expensive they offer a better itinerary of 15 nights against P&O 12 nights - but Discovery will be far superior to Oriana or Aurora currently "doing" the lights

Future cruise bookings on board.

We are cruising on the Saga Pearl II next month, but are looking to try out the Spirit of Discovery next year. Is there any benefit in waiting to book once on board, or are we better off booking it now?

As its a new ship I am expecting it sell out very quickly, like many we book as early as possible to ensure we get the cabin we want.

Saga have a variable discount starting high when first released and dropping as the ship fills.

Prompted by jgw321 question re booking on board - just for fun I did a current price check on one of our future cruises. In Feb 2019 we are doing a Northern lights cruise from Southampton on P&O Aurora.

We booked a Mini Suite on deck B in September 2017, we didn't book on board while on an earlier cruise but via our agent

I checked today and all Mini Suites are sold out so I priced a deluxe balcony on B Deck - the deluxe balcony is £2400 total more expensive than the booked mini suite.

That's why we book as early as possible

Please is anyone able to offer me some insight into how Saga's cabin grades work? I've looked into it as best I can but am learning very little. I know I could ring them and ask but they are a little bit pushy once they find someone who's got half an interest and I'm not really up for being hassled just yet.
Sorry if I've hijacked a thread about something else, it's the Discovery I've seen an interesting itinerary on.

The Spirit of Discovery is being built so there are no "real" photos

Go to Saga's web https://travel.saga.co.uk/cruises/oc...in-grades.aspx which shows cabin descriptions, and deck plans. The pictures shown are obviously sales mock ups at this early stage but were good enough for us to book a Deluxe Balcony cabin on the Northern lights cruise in Feb 2020.
Hope this helps Alan

You are right, those pictures made the Spirit of Discovery look very enticing. I hope they paid the graphic design company well. They certainly seem to have found the best people for the job.
