Saga’s first purpose-built boutique cruise ship was christened as Spirit of Discovery by HRH The Duchess of Cornwall on 5 July at the Port of Dover in Kent, UK. Prior to the naming ceremony, The Duchess of Cornwall toured Spirit of Discovery, which features boutique British-style interiors designed by UK-based company SMC Design. She met captain Julian Burgess and crew on the bridge, entertainers in the theatre and English pianist, bandleader, singer, composer and TV presenter Jools Holland OBE in ‘The Club by Jools’. Also on display during the tour were some of the ship’s 400 original artworks, which were created by UK-based artists and artisans, including Peter Layton who crafted a glass sculpture inspired by the Royal Gardens at Highgrove, the private residence of TRH The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall. Following the tour, The Duchess of Cornwall cut a two-metre-long cake replica of Spirit of Discovery, which was designed, baked and decorated by Mark Tilling, an award-winning chocolatier and winner of ‘Bake Off Crème de la Crème’.
