SAGA ROSE - 2 Sept 2008

A visit aboard SAGA ROSE at Dover, England 2 September 2008
24528gt 1965 Bahamas
188.88m x 24.38m x 8.26m
ex SAGAFJORD, GRIPSHOLM
What a truely wonderful immaculate vessel in all respects. My photos do not do SAGA ROSE justice & with such appalling weather I do not have many 'on deck' pictures. I got wet enough as it was on the Promenade. Such a shame she is not SOLAS 2010 compliant & will see the end of her sailing days in April 2010.

SAGA ROSE on Deck & Views from
Sep 2, 2008

2 September 2008, was a very wet & very windy day, hence there was little opportunity for enjoying much of SAGA ROSE's lovely teak decks. One got lashed with rain anywhere except when huddled under the lifeboats; even then it wasn't rainproof. Unfortunately this means there are few photos, but quite a number of CRYSTAL SYMPHONY berthed at Cruise Terminal 2. Also the tug DHB DOUGHTY who remained midships for most of the day presumably ensuring SAGA ROSE remained alongside in the wind.
Note the sheer of SAGA ROSE's Promenade deck; quite pronounced & lovely to see.
