Titan (0800 988 5867, www.titantravel.co.uk), the multi award-winning escorted tour operator, has released the first edition of its 2015 Cruise & Tour brochure showcasing 20 brand new itineraries that combine ‘the best of both worlds’, with the freedom of a journey by sea alongside the opportunity to get to the heart of a chosen destination with a land-based tour.
Titan pioneered these innovative holidays more than two decades ago and the concept has now developed into an exciting range of 55 unique globetrotting tours, from exotic adventures in far-flung corners of the world to experiences much closer to home.
The breadth of the tours includes world renowned cruise lines such as Fred. Olsen, Holland America, Voyages to Antiquity, NCL and Hurtigruten as well as small ship operators such as the MV Adriatic Queen (with fewer than 50 passengers), Turkish Gulets and Galapagos Islands Cruises.
For the single travellers there are no single supplements available on a range of itineraries including – Dubrovnik and the Dalmatian Islands, Lakes and Islands of Undiscovered Croatia and Terra Magica – Istria and Croatia’s Bay of Islands. Single cabins are limited so early booking is advised.
Among the new routes for 2015 is the stunning 16-day New York and the Southern Caribbean itinerary – a unique winter holiday combining a two-night break in the Big Apple with a 12-night Caribbean cruise. Take in the sights and sounds of New York before embarking the award-winning Norwegian Breakaway ‘super ship’ for a 12-night cruise around some of the most beautiful islands of the Caribbean including the US Virgin Islands, St Lucia, Barbados and the idyllic St Kitts. Departing on 16th or 30th January 2015, this unforgettable cruise costs from £1,695 per person with a free Balcony Stateroom upgrade (limited availability – book early to avoid disappointment) and includes flights, two nights in the 4-star Marriott East Side, a New York city tour, 12 nights’ cruise on the Norwegian Breakaway, 37 meals, the services of a Titan Tour Manager and Titan’s VIP Home Departure Service.
For a no-fly option, the new Scandinavian Islands and Archipelagos cruise departs from Southampton and offers a 15-day itinerary exploring the best Scandinavia has to offer, from the 20,000 islands that make up Finland’s beautiful Turku Archipelago to the historic cities of Turku and Helsinki, with additional stops in St Petersburg, Stockholm and Copenhagen. It costs from £1,499 per person departing on 11th July 2015 and includes a 14 night cruise on Balmoral, most meals, a variety of daytime activities, lectures, talks and evening entertainment, £75 per person on-board credit, the services of a Titan tour manager and Titan’s VIP Home Departure Service. Book before 30th September 2014 to receive a free drinks package worth an additional £140 per person.
Also new for 2015, the Island Beauty of Greece and Turkey itinerary offers a unique ‘small ship adventure’ aboard an exclusively chartered traditional Turkish Gulet. These traditional wooden vessels have evolved from their original purpose for fishing and cargo to become full-service hotels on the water. The beauty of the gulet is its small size (up to 35 metres), which enables access to the deserted bays and secluded coves of the coastline and also facilitates an informal and friendly atmosphere on board, with luxury and deluxe accommodation and the facilities and creature comforts of a hotel. This 8-day cruise explores the turquoise waters and beautiful scenery of the Datça Peninsula and its surrounding islands at a tranquil pace, including a night docked in Rhodes to offer extra time on the largest of the Dodecanese Islands. Departing from May to October 2015, it costs from £1,349 per person including flights, 7-nights’ cruise on an air-conditioned gulet, most meals, walking tours of Rhodes and Marmaris, the services of a Titan tour manager and Titan’s VIP Home Departure Service.
There are many impressive savings to be had – travellers wishing to go further afield can save up to £680 per person on the incredible 22-day Passage to Sri Lanka and India itinerary which takes in the island of Penang in Malaysia, Colombo in Sri Lanka and the Malabar Coast of India before embarking on a five-day land tour of India’s Golden Triangle. Prices start from £4,595 departing on 11 March 2015 and include flights, 6 nights in hotels and 13 nights’ cruise on the MV Aegean Odyssey, all meals on-board the ship and breakfast in the hotels, 12 excursions and visits, selected wine, beer or soft drinks with dinner, a Titan tour manager and Titan’s VIP Home Departure Service.
