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.”

    This would be my winter treat away from home. Very interesting to visit the markets, I am sure I would come home laden with gifts.

    I went on my first ever cruise in December 2017 on Fred Olsen’s MS Balmoral. I was celebrating my 60th birthday and I took my daughter who was celebrating her 21st. We had the most wonderful time. I would so love to cruise again and the prize on offer here would be greatly appreciated.

    I have visited Hamburg and Bremen on business many years ago, but sadly never had the opportunity to do any sightseeing. Fingers crossed for this time.

    A festive cruise sounds the perfect way to celebrate Christmas. I've visited Christmas markets in this country and in Spain, but it would be lovely to see how other European nations put on a festive show. Good luck to everyone in this cracker of a competition :)
