Saga SapphireThis prize draw is now closed.

Start 2016 in style! This month you could win a Maritime Heritage Cruise with Saga, for 5 nights sailing June 30, 2016 aboard Saga Sapphire. And for the runners-up, a fabulous pamper package, courtesy of Emerald Waterways.

1st Prize - The Saga Maritime Heritage Cruise

And what a fabulous prize. Enjoy the Saga small-ship experience beginning with chauffeur service to the port of Dover, and join a poignant service off the coast of Folkestone to commemorate the First World War soldiers who departed from here. After sailing away from the iconic White Cliffs, continue to Portsmouth, where harbour boat tours of the historic dockyards will give a unique view of HMS Victory and the Royal Navy fleet.

The Needles, Isle of WightNext is a unique front-row seat at the 85th anniversary of the famous ‘Round the Island Race’ where over 1,000 brightly-coloured spinnakers turn the Solent into a sea of colour for the 50-nautical-mile dash around the Isle of Wight. Live coverage on board by expert commentators will fuel the excitement, and Saga Sapphire will be in a prime position to witness both the start and finish.

Honfleur, FranceThen cruise across the Channel, pausing at Guernsey to discover this island's Continental charms and wartime history, before visiting Le Havre in Normandy. Visit Arromanches to spy the remains of a Mulberry harbour, an ingenious platform used during the Allied invasion of Normandy.  Finally enjoy the leisurely sailing back to Dover followed by Saga's return travel back home.

    I've not yet been on a cruise but have been looking at them recently. Some of the ships are enormous, the rooms spacious and the options varied for everyone's tastes. Certainly thinking of taking the plunge :)

    Sounds a fantastic cruise to go on. Not too long and not too far from home either!
    It would be good to sample a cruise like this having never been on one before.

    If I don't win this prize I will have to try and save to buy it - it looks brilliant.

    This cruise sounds really interesting, My husband and I are both interested in trying a cruise but as yet never tried this type of holiday. We love anything historic and my husband's favorite history is of WW1 or WW2 therefore this cruise could combine both.

    like thelma winyard, my would-have-been uncle died aboard a ship torpedoed in the channel ~ i'm sure he would have been a hero, but instead he died as one of the many underage army recruits, who lied about his age to be allowed to join up. such a sad loss of life. would love the opportunity to take this cruise ... honour his and so many others' sacrifices.

    Have been browsing Saga brochures and would love to go on our first cruise, this one would be ideal. Have never been to Guernsey and years since I have visited the Isle of Wight. Fingers crossed!

    Can't talk my Hubby to go on a Cruise, but I think he would agree to this one.

    This cruise is really different. It would be memorable to see the coast of Great Britain and view the race around the Isle of Wight so closely and from a cruise ship. We have never been on a cruise so here's hoping.

    This would be an unbelievable experience. Thinking positive - here's hoping.
