There’s been an announcement that Meyer Werft are to build a new ship for Saga. It’ll be medium-sized, somewhere around 55,000 tons. There are few details yet about the ship itself, although it is suggested that it will be all-balcony and that it will carry less than 1000 passengers in around 540 cabins. As many as 15% of those will be single cabins. The ship will be ready in 2019, and there’s an option for a second ship to be delivered in 2021.

This is a big step for Saga – they’ve always used old, small tonnage on charter. It will be interesting to learn more details of the ship as they emerge.

Now when will Fred Olsen bite the newbuild bullet?
