Great! - Plans are that from May 2012 she'll sail as Quest for Adventure, replacing the Spirit of Adventure, which was sold to FTI Cruises (new name will be FTI Berlin. Saga Pearl II will be replaced by Saga Sapphire (now still sailing as Bleu de France).
Regards, Jens

SAGA PEARL II, IMO 8000214. ex-ASTORIA, ARKONA, ASTOR, built 1981.
I think she was on her first cruise for Saga when you took that shot. Must have been a cold cruise though! :-)
