Saga Cruise Applications close tomorrow

A reminder about the 2021 Saga Cruise applications

Dear All, 

Just a quick reminder that the 2021 Saga cruise applications close at midnight on Tuesday 18th May.

We are delighted that Saga have offered ORCA Survey Teams places on board their cruise ships the Spirit of Discovery and Spirit of Adventure in 2021. These cruises cater predominantly for individuals aged 50 years and over, however ORCA has special dispensation so our survey teams can include people from 21 years of age and above.

Of course, these cruises will be slightly different in 2021, with social distancing practices on board, face coverings to be worn in all indoor areas and the need for all guests and ORCA volunteers to be vaccinated against Covid-19, to name but a few. Details of Saga’s return to service safety measures and vaccination policy can be found in the links below:

Full details of the cruises, how to apply, COVID-19 specific information and what is required of ORCA volunteers on board can be found on the Applying for Surveys page on the Surveyor Network. 

With very best wishes,
Lucy
