Enjoy the thrill of the Isle of Man TT Race – A cruise perfectly timed for Saga Sapphire passengers to go ashore to watch the world-famous motorsport spectacle

Motorsport lovers can enjoy the thrill of the Isle of Man TT Race during Saga Sapphire’s British Isles and Ireland cruise in May 2018.

The cruise has been perfectly timed to coincide with the motorcycle race and the 700-passenger ship drops anchor near Douglas, the capital of the Isle of Man.

Guests can join an optional excursion to watch the race at the famous grandstand, The Noble Park Fanzone, or consider a quieter option to join a transfer to Ramsey Town to watch the TT racing in Parliament Square and later head off into the pretty town with time for a spot of lunch and some retail therapy.

The cruise also includes raising a glass or two in Dublin and sailing into Liverpool to perhaps ‘twist and shout’ through The Beatles Story exhibition in the Albert Dock.

Meanwhile, back on board, the party atmosphere continues with live bands and host of entertainment and activities.

Saga Sapphire’s last port of call to Portland, in Dorset, gives guests the opportunity to admire the sweeping Jurassic Coast.

Optional excursions include a tip-toe through a colony of nesting mute swans at Abbotsbury Swannery or visits to Bovington Tank Museum, Sherbourne Castle or Minterne House, featured in the book ‘England’s 1,000 Best Houses’.

Seven nights from £1,352 departing Dover on May 29, 2018. Price includes includes UK travel package to and from Dover, all meals and entertainment, choice of table wines at lunch and dinner, afternoon tea, 24-hour room service, welcome cocktail party, unlimited tea and coffee in selected venues, free Wi-Fi, all on-board gratuities, porterage, free shuttle bus to nearest town centre (whenever possible and when the ship is berthed more than 500 yards away), optional travel insurance and additional cancellation rights, or a discount if passenger has own insurance. Excursions mentioned are optional, at an additional cost, and subject to availability and change.

Price based on two people sharing an Inside Guarantee where guests receive their cabin number shortly before sailing or at embarkation and not at the time of booking. The cabin may be allocated anywhere on the ship and twin cabins may have either two single beds or one double bed. Further terms and conditions apply.
