When you’ve been on a cruise, have you ever wondered who was behind the scenes, taking care of everything for you? Now here’s your chance to find out a bit more about some of Saga’s top people


Captain Alistair McLundie saga sapphire


Saga Sapphire’s captain has a wealth of maritime experience. He spent 12 years with Harrisons (Clyde) of Glasgow, then worked for Seacontainers before joining Saga in 1997, where he was quickly promoted. He took command of Saga Rose in 2000 at the tender age of 34. Cpt Mclundie describes himself as “an ordinary, down-to-earth chap” who is lucky enough to be doing a job he loves. Cpt Mclundie is looking forward to working with a


great team under his command. “i will be sailing with well-known and respected colleagues such as chief engineer len Blinston, and Horst pint, our hotel director, both of whom are heavily involved in the refit, along with Matthew Henderson, one of our staff captains.” Cpt Mclundie has been following the refurbishment


of Saga Sapphire closely: “i can’t wait to sail on her and show her off to guests,” he says.

Captain Wesley Dunlop Quest for adventure


Cpt Dunlop sailed on Quest for Adventure in her former incarnation as Saga Pearl II. “i have fond memories of the intimate and informal atmosphere on board,” he says. “i’m reassured to hear that we are not changing the exquisite food, excellent service or friendly crew, we’re only changing the name.” The captain is looking forward to the departure


date of Quest for Adventure’s maiden voyage – 6 May 2012. “i can guarantee that passengers will be amazed by the number of suprises the British isles and ireland have to offer,” he says. Cpt Dunlop sees his role as making sure guests have the chance to make the most of their voyage. “Of course,” he says, “the very nature of Quest for Adventure’s cruises means that you’ll have the opportunity to do some pretty amazing things.”
