Saga restart cruise before tours


Recommended Posts

Re: topics about various press reports, some saying Saga plan to restart in 2020, some saying not until April 2021.

These must have been taken from the company interim results published on their corporate website for shareholders.

https://corporate.saga.co.uk/investors/results-reports-presentations/

It is an open website (no need to be a shareholder) and the file dated 10th September, which is the updated interim report from 31st July 2020, gives the clue.

To avoid breaching CC rules about cutting and pasting, I'll just highlight(paraphrasing) the pages of interest.

 Page 2, all protocols are in place ready to resume cruising as soon as they have the green light.

Page 6, they lead the way for the cruise industry with their response.

Page 22, expecting to resume cruise operations November 2020, with the tours operations resuming April 2021. They are also planning for cruises to be suspended again January to May 2021.

Page 26 repeats this.

Page 35 repeats this, with the clarification that another suspension could happen in the event of another lockdown.

Page 57 repeats that cruises are expected to start 2020, with tours April 2021.

And..... I just LOVE the CEO statement on page 6, that Saga have always operated heir cruises in a bubble, with all passengers being picked up from home and transported to the ship, then back home again at the end.

No mention of the fact that this is provided you live within 250 miles, or that some passengers catch trains/flights/coaches to get to and from the ship.

Hey h.

Reading it is quite interesting, but also evident that Saga are none too confident that things will be back to normal any time soon,
