» Saga Ruby

Owned by: Saga

Previously the Vistafjord built by Swan Hunter in 1973 and renamed in 1999 the Caronia (now Saga Ruby as of 2005) is the sister ship to Saga Rose in the Saga fleet coming in 24,492 tons. She's around six times smaller than the Queen Mary 2! but still has a lot of charm with her blue, yellow and white colours. Being able to carry a maximum of 668 passengers and 379 crew she's one of the most intimate and classic looking cruise ships roaming the oceans.

The Caronia is 627ft long, 82ft wide with a draught of 27ft, she will cruise at 20knots and her passengers will not be bored with plenty of facilities including two swimming pools, a Spa Gym and Sauna, onboard office, library numerous shops (including a barber's!), casino, theatre and of course the Grand Ballroom.

Having only been in service with Cunard since late 1999 an re-fitted in 2002 she's fitted into the role admirably and is definitely one to look out for.
