The SAGA pick up service was excellent. On arrival at Dover the check in was done in minutes and while we waited we were served FREE drinks and food, and entertained with a Scottish Piper. The Spifire display as we were leaving was brilliant , un forgettable. Weather prevented us from reaching our destination of Kirkwall in the Orkneys but the change was handled so well by SAGA that it really didn't detract from our enjoyment of the trip. The Superior Balcony cabin was spacious, clean well equipped and more than enough hanging and storage space. The food at every meal was excellent, always varied and nothing repeated, unlike Cunard Princess Grills!. The Beach Club with its' sweety shop, Ice Cream shop and Fish and Chip shop is inspired and very popular. The staff are happy, friendly, helpful and always ready to help with any request. Entertainment was varied, professional and very enjoyable. Trips were well organised from the ship but two were let down by a leaky coach , soon remedied, and a not so good guide in Edinburgh. We saw wonderful places like the Bass Rock, Bamburgh Castle and the Highland scenery. Disembarkation was as smooth as it is possible to be, done in minutes and our driver home was fabulous. We didn't get our fling to Orkney but we had a wonderful holiday and would recommend this ship to anyone.
