The Spirit of Adventure, the second new cruise ship for the British cruise line Saga Cruises, was handed over yesterday in Emden by MEYER WERFT to Saga Cruises.

MEYER WERFT delivers Spirit of Adventure

MEYER WERFT was thus able to deliver the new cruise ship a few weeks after the Ems passage. The Corona crisis had caused these important milestones to be post-poned.

"Despite all the adversities in the last few months caused by the corona pandemic, we were able to complete both the construction in Papenburg and the testing and commis-sioning of the ship within a manageable time frame. This is mainly due to the good part-nership with Saga Cruises, our partners and the commitment of our teams, who com-pleted the ship with dedication and know-how", says Thomas Weigend, Managing Di-rector of MEYER WERFT.

The Spirit of Adventure (CruiseMapper) is characterized by an environmentally friendly and resource-saving design. Like her sister ship Spirit of Discovery, an eSiPod drive from Siemens is used. With a length of 236 metres, a width of 31.2 metres and 999 passengers, she is one of the smaller and exclusive cruise ships.
