Cruise ship prepares for April 2015 Gallipoli visit


On 25 April 2015, cruise ship Saga Sapphire will be anchored off Anzac Cove – 100 years to the day that the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps went ashore there.

Passengers will be able to take part in trips to the Gallipoli battlefield and the Greek island of Lemnos, near the entrance of the Dardenelles, which acted as the muster point for the landings. They will also be invited to join the ship’s War Literature Club – a chance to read and discuss poetry, novels and letters from World War I, accompanied by an expert on this literary genre.

Saga Sapphire departs Southampton on 5 April 2015 for 31 nights visiting El Ferrol, Cartagena and Palma, Spain; Tunis, Tunisia; Piraeus, Syros, Thessaloniki and Lemnos, Greece; Canakkale, Istanbul, Anzac Cove, Turkey; Iraklion, Crete; Valletta, Malta and Gibraltar. Prices begin at £3,499.
