Cruiseco has released its 2009 brochure of cruise experiences aboard two of the world's finest small ships, Saga Rose and Saga Ruby that cater exclusively for the over-50s seeking the indulgences of yesteryear cruising ambience, combined with all the trappings of the 21st century.

It includes a total thirty-cruises out of England that range from four nights to seventy-three nights to such far-flung parts of the earth as the Arctic, Mediterranean, Africa, the Caribbean, Scandinavia and America's New England – and Saga Rose's around-the-world Commonwealth World Cruise of 104 nights from January 5 that will include Australia.

Cruiseco, a consortium of cruise-specialist travel agencies Australia-wide, represents Saga Cruises in Australia and says cruise bookings from here on the "Saga sisters" have increased substantially in the past couple of years.

It largely credits this to the ship's sizes (Saga Rose carries just 587 passengers and Saga Ruby 655,) their concentration on fine dining, daily activities that include exercise classes and guest lecturer programs that are both physically and mentally stimulating, and an ambience of polished timber and brasswork, promenade decks, ballrooms, nightly West End-style shows, late-release movies, computer learning centres, pools and quiet lounges.

For a free copy of the Saga Cruise Collection for 2009 that includes prices and early booking discounts, phone 1800 225 656 for the name of your nearest Cruiseco cruise-specialist agency Australia-wide, or visit
