  1. quote from the end of the article in The Portsmouth News from Gerald Vernon Jackson The development comes as council officials look to strike a deal with Saga to become a base for its cruise ships. Civic chiefs insist the move could ignite an economic boom, with the city welcoming thousands more visitors each year. Portsmouth has already agreed an £18.5m expansion of the international port to transform it into a leading cruise terminal.

This is not a full list, The Spirit of Adventure is to be officially named in Portsmouth in August and there are a few more saga sailings not shown on that list there are negotiations underway to make Portsmouth Saga's home Port https://www.cruisetradenews.com/saga-spirit-of-adventure-named-portsmouth/
