This evening the cruise ship Saga Rose, one of the oldest cruise ships in the world, will set off on a historic voyage from her homeport in Southampton – its 44th (and final) round-the-world-cruise, more than any other cruise ship.

The voyage is a whopping 32,499 miles that will take 104 nights, 39 port visits and passage through both the Suez and Panama Canals.  The 620 ft. ship, formerly known as Sagafjord, was built in 1965, and has been operating as Saga Rose since 1996.  This 44th voyage round-the-world will mark 1 for every year in operation.
