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.”

    Love the idea of visiting the German Christmas Markets. Not so sure about cruising in Dec as I have always been a poor sailor - don’t even like the ferry crossing to the IoW.

    I suppose the thought here is keep your brain as active for as long as you can because you never know what is around the corner. So many people these days start getting dementia in the late 60s and early 70s, it is hard to go away leaving your loved one behind

    I have never, ever been on a cruise so fingers crossed !

    The photo and description make it sound SO inviting! If one wraps up warm, the cold air and maybe snow scenes will be very seasonal and picturesque, a photo opportunity round every corner! And think of the placename dropping when one hands over the Christmas gifts bought at the Markets!!

    I am sure the ship will be beautifully decorated for the festive season, but maybe I can smuggle a piece of plastic mistletoe in my suitcase, just in case the real stuff is not available on the ship!

    Good Luck to all the other entrants! Hope whoever wins will really enjoy the experience.

    Went on a Christmas market cruise last year to Antwerp and loved it, so would love to do another to the German Christmas markets.

    Well, when you've reached that age you may as well go on a cruise to celebrate it. Fingers crossed-this sounds amazing.

    WOW, What an amazing prize. We have been married 58 years this year so this would be perfect for us. Saga will pick you up from your door and we don't drive far now so this would be perfect for us.

    I do love a Christmas cruise - we did one on QM2 a couple of years back. I joined the choir and we sang carols in the atrium - it was magical!

    Have very fond memories of Hamburg, and love the Christmas markets. Couple that with another helping of Saga's hospitality and - yes please!

    December would be lovely to go on this saga cruise it would certainly help me to get over my winter blues. I've never been to Germany I'm sure it's very nice and I'm sure the German markets are full of pure delights. Fingers crossed.

    It would be nice to find out what a Saga cruise is like as I haven't tried them yet. Also it would be lovely to visit the Christmas markets
