Spirit of Adventure is a cruise ship operated by Saga Cruises and constructed by Meyer Werft in Papenburg, Germany. As Saga’s second new-build vessel, she was originally considered as an option in the cruise line’s pursuit to renew its fleet, but the company finalised the order in 2017 after seeing rising profits in its travel business following the announcement of her sister ship, Spirit of Discovery. Her keel was laid on 3 June 2019 and she was delivered on 29 September 2020, but in response to travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the inaugural cruise was continuously postponed until she officially debuted on 26 July 2021.

Spirit of Adventure operates under Saga’s business model of targeting guests ages 50 and over and shares many of the same dimensions with her sister ship, but includes a different interior design to better distinguish her identity as a distinct vessel in the fleet.

Along with her sister ship, Spirit of Discovery, Spirit of Adventure operates under Saga’s model of exclusively serving guests of ages 50 and over. All voyages aboard the ship will also include Saga’s “all-inclusive” cruising experience, in which the cost of the cruise covers expenses incurred from beverages, gratuities, specialty dining, room service, internet access, and local chauffeur services to the port. Saga also commissioned a separate firm for the ship’s interior to craft an environment unique to her through new decor, a modified variety of accommodations and eateries, and redesigned lounge venues.

Spirit of Adventure is designed to match her sister ship’s dimensions, measuring 58,250 GT, 236 metres (774 ft) long, and 31.2 metres (102 ft) wide, and will also have 554 all-balcony passenger cabins housing a total of 999 guests. Saga partnered with Siemens to employ Siemens SISHIP SiPODs for the ships’ propulsion and power distribution systems. The ships are powered by four nine-cylinder 32/44 common rail MAN engines equipped with selective catalytic reduction, each producing 5,400 kilowatts (7,200 hp), for a total of 21,600 kilowatts (29,000 hp). To better recover waste heat, they are also equipped with a centralised heating water system that reduces pump power by 65 kW to save 200 MWh per annum.
