Saga Pearl IIThis prize draw is now only open to those who vote for the Silver Travel Awards.

This month our free prize draw* will be a 6-day Saga Cruise, for two people, in December 2018 to get the winner into the Festive spirit at Bremen and Hamburg’s traditional Christmas Markets. The perfect start to the Christmas break, sure to get you in the right spirit for celebrations!

Leaving from Portsmouth, you’ll cross the North Sea to Germany, enjoying the delights of Saga Pearl II on the way, then have a day to discover the delights of Hanseatic Bremen, with its wonderfully decorated stalls and atmospheric lights in the main square. The next day you’ll be voyaging to Hamburg with the chance to buy unique gifts at the Advent Markets, which are the epitome of wintery sparkle and fairytale magic. Shop right outside the City Hall or head for the Winterwald market, where you can visit a manmade forest in the city centre!  

Saga Pearl II - Dining roomSaga Pearl II is a real favourite with Silver Travellers, as one cruiser explains, “It is a smaller ship but perfectly formed. Yacht-like and looks splendid in deep blue and white. A classic and classy looking ship. A maximum of 449 guests are catered for by a crew of 252 - a ratio that puts most cruise lines to shame. Such a wonderful ship. It kind of gives everyone a warm hug. People love this ship- they really do. Just look at the faces of fellow silver travellers and staff. Glowing with pride. Staff are clearly happy in their job. Smiles everywhere and every time.”

    My last trip to Hamburg was via a ferry called The Prince Hamlet from Harwich in 1971. It would be good to go back with Fred.

    We would love to win a Saga cruise to the Christmas Markets. It is a magical time which helps to dispel the winter cold and winter blues.

    This will "float my boat" with more staff than guests and it gives you something to look forward to when the nights are drawing in.

    Would love to win this for my partner and myself. I've never been on a cruise and I'd love to do the German Markets. So to win I would be able to fulfil two ambitions!!

    This sounds like a truly magical cruise. We have never been on a cruise ship before and this looks like a wonderful one to introduce us to the joys of the seas. This is our silver wedding anniversary year, winning this would be an absolute dream.

    As it happens, I've just been browsing through the Saga brochures and this trip caught my eye. I haven't cruised with Saga this would be a good 'taster'.

    A ship 'that gives everyone a warm hug' ooh - yes, please - would love to experience a German Christmas market in Germany rather than an English town. Fingers crossed!!
