Saga Ruby (ex Vistafjord)

Saga Ruby was built by Swan Hunter as Vistafjord for the erstwhile Norwegian America Line. The history of Saga Ruby until her last years with Cunard, when she was renamed Caronia, is described in detail at www.cybercruise.com.
Following an extensive refit she emerged as Saga Ruby of Saga Holidays in 2005. You can get an impression of her present condition at www.shipparade.com. Whereas it seems that the ship is more beautiful than ever after the refit supervised by Alison Clixby this is at least for me personally embittered by the sad fact that Saga Holidays does not allow passengers who are younger than 50 years aboard Saga Ruby and Saga Rose - the only exception are accompanying persons for whom the age limit is lowered to 40 years.
