Enjoy the thrills of Isle of Man TT’s 100th anniversary year in June on Saga Sapphire

Guests will experience the high-octane thrills of a 100th anniversary Isle of Man TT superbike race during Saga Sapphire's seven-day June cruise that also features stops in the world-class port cities of Dublin and Liverpool.

The ship’s visit to the Isle of Man is perfectly timed to coincide with the world-famous superbike races, when the TT riders burn up the island’s roads for two weeks every year at the end of May and early June.

Saga guests can take up pole position and watch the legendary TT racing from its famous grandstand, or soak up the atmosphere at Noble Park Fanzone or in Ramsey Town’s Parliament Square, each providing perfect places to savour the action.

Dublin, with its grand mansions and beautiful squares, is another port of call for Saga Sapphire during this coastal cruise. Alongside its elegant Georgian and Victorian architecture, many of Dublin’s historic pubs and bars are themselves a living testament to the city’s history, literary heritage and reputation for good times.

There is also the option of an excursion to the magnificent Powerscourt Estate in County Wicklow, a large country house with enchanting Japanese and Italian gardens.

In Liverpool, the National Trust-owned childhood homes of John Lennon and Paul McCartney are now firmly on the tourist map for Beatles fans. Saga guests can further immerse themselves in all things Fab Four with a trip to Strawberry Fields, Penny Lane and the Beatles Story exhibition.

On sailing in to Portland Harbour off the Jurassic Coast, there is the opportunity to visit beautiful Abbotsbury Gardens, see Benedictine ruins and a 600-year-old swannery.

The all-inclusive boutique style cruise departing from Dover on 29 May costs from £999 and includes all additional food including afternoon tea and room service, plus free on-board Wi-Fi, plus return chauffeur service to the UK departure point.
