Titan HiTours launches a programme of small-ship cruises around the world, exclusively on-board the Spirit of Adventure
Titan HiTours, the escorted tours specialist, has released a brochure of enticing cruise itineraries aboard a single small ship, the MV Spirit of Adventure, for 2011/2012. The schedule of cruise holidays follows the ship from country to country and from continent to continent as it makes its way around the world, offering a string of exciting and imaginative experiences along the way. With a range of destinations covering the British Isles and the Baltic Sea through to Asia and Australia (and just about everything in between!), the brochure features a diversity of incredible cruises that really is second to none.
Unique to clients booking through Titan HiTours the cruises also include Titan renowned VIP Home Departure Service which collects clients from - and returns them to - their own front door, ensuring an unrivalled and hassle free cruise experience.
The intimate environment that's fostered aboard this smaller cruise vessel makes for a supremely relaxed and comfortable ambiance and has led The Spirit of Adventure to be described as being “more like a super yacht than a cruise ship”. With accommodation for a maximum of just 348 passengers it large enough to feature a full range of facilities (including a 3,000-volume library and a spa) yet small enough to never feel crowded. What's more, its small size means that the Spirit can put in at charming ports and harbours that are beyond the reach of larger vessels, affording passengers an authentic glimpse of a destination that those on a 'regular' cruise ship might not get to see. An extraordinary entertainment schedule puts a strong emphasis on learning, with musical recitals from the ship's resident ensemble and additional performances from local folk groups and a programme of talks and presentations from guest lecturers covering such topics as archaeology, astronomy, ornithology and marine ecology. There are also daytime activities encompassing everything from painting classes to wine-tasting as well as a full offering of carefully-planned shore excursions for whenever the ship makes landfall.
The brochure contains a total of 27 exotic and enticing cruise holidays, with a particular highlight being the seven brand new itineraries that are being introduced to the programme for the first time. These follow the ship as it journeys from Australia via the Far East and Southern Asia to the Red Sea, with the first being a journey From Australia to Asia departing 18 January, 2012. Highlights include snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef; sailing into a volcanic crater in Indonesia's Banda Islands; visits to the original 'spice islands' and the unforgettable opportunity to see orang-utans at the Sepilok Rehabilitation Centre. This 21-day trip costs from £3,235 per person and includes flights; transfers; full-board accommodation on the Spirit of Adventure; onboard gratuities; shore-based excursions as detailed in the itinerary; and Titan's exclusive VIP Home Departure Service.
The Spirit continues from Borneo for its next itinerary, which discovers the Spirit of South East Asia with stops in the Philippines before crossing the South China Sea to terminate in Hong Kong. This 17-day trip departs from the UK on 5 February, 2012 and costs from £2,695 per person. The next two itineraries focus on the continental Far East, starting with the Pearls of the Orient itinerary (departs London on 4 March, 2010). This leaves Hong Kong and continues down the Chinese seaboard to discover the leading coastal cities of Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. This 17-day holiday costs from £2,645 per person and is followed by the 17-day Jewels of the East Indies itinerary, which sees the Spirit retrace its steps to Sihanoukville, Ho Chi Minh City and Nha Trang before returning to Borneo and finally ending its voyage in Port Kelang on mainland Malaysia. This holiday costs from £2,745 per person.
From here, the Spirit continues on its odyssey with the 16-day voyage to the Colonial Spice Ports of the Indian Ocean, stopping in Phuket, Thailand; the Andaman Islands and on to the Sri Lankan ports of Trincomalee and Colombo before travelling up India's west coast as far as Mumbai. This holiday costs from £2,595 per person. This is immediately followed by the 16-day Magic of India itinerary, which returns from Mumbai to Mangalore and Kochi before heading north to Porbandar in the Indian state of Gujarat (birthplace of Mahatma Ghandi) and on to beautiful Sultanate of Oman before terminating in neighbouring Dubai. The price of this holiday is from £2,445 per person. What's more, customers can take advantage of a consecutive cruise offer by booking both these itineraries (or Colonial Spice Ports and Jewels of the East Indies) and save 15% off the combined fares.
The final new itinerary is the 17-day Red Sea Explorer, which departs London on 15 April, 2012 and sets sail from Dubai to take in Oman, Eritrea, Sudan, Egypt and on to Aqaba, Jordan, where the odyssey concludes. The itinerary takes in the Omani capital of Muscat and the country's second-largest city, Salalah, before moving on to visit Luxor and the Valley of the Kings (optional excursion). The holiday costs from £2,445 per person and can also be combined with the preceding Magic of India itinerary for the consecutive cruise discount of 15% off the combined fares.
Commenting on the new addition for Titan, Marketing director, Dan Whitehouse said, “We are proud of the exceptional value that Titan HiTours and the Spirit of Adventure represent to our customers.
