With so much culinary choice in a selection of venues, mealtimes onboard Saga Sapphire are a definite highlight of each day.

Pole to Pole

Experience: complimentary

Pole to Pole, the main 620-seater restaurant, is a large space, but still retains an intimate atmosphere.

This is thanks to its ‘zones’ – each styled to reflect a different continent. Dine in:

  • Africa
  • Asia
  • Europe
  • or the Americas

Dotted with antiques and curios, it’s a sophisticated space to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner, all expertly served by own team of friendly waiters.

The majority of tables are open seating, but if your prefer a fixed-seating table, there are a number of these available.

East to West

Experience: complimentary

Food: asian

For something a little different, reserve your table at East to West, the ship’s 64-seater specialty restaurant – for no extra charge!

Here, experience a taste of Asia as waiters serve up the best Oriental flavours in a medley of Asian-influenced dishes.

Make sure you book in advance as its popularity ensures a full house on most nights!

The Grill

Experience: complimentary

Food: varies

If you’re looking for a more casual dining experience, look no further than the Verandah and Grill.

    Britannia Lounge

    During the day the Britannia Lounge is the venue for dance classes, quizzes, music recitals and much more.

    And although, she's every inch a modern ship, Saga Sapphire still retains the finest of cruising traditions - the lounge hosts a tempting afternoon tea each day.

    But it's as the sun sets that this area is transformed, as singers, instrumentalists and the ship's own resident theatre company take to the stage for dazzling evening entertainment.

    Cooper's Bar

    Unwind with friends in Cooper's Bar, styled as a tribute to the wit of comedian Tommy Cooper, with fez shaped lampshades and cushions brandishing his one-liners.
