In addition, a further nine cruises are featured in the programme on board the A-Rosa Brava, the Douro Queen, the Spirit of Chartwell and the MS Johannes Brahms.

Over the years, Titan has chartered many river cruise vessels for individual sailings, but never one for an entire year. Commenting on the new ship, managing director Andy Squirrell said: “This is a brand new venture for Titan. After many years of working with some of the world’s leading cruise lines, we like to think we know exactly what makes a fantastic cruise.

“We are excited to be able to offer a selection of wonderful European river cruise holidays aboard this stylish ship, where every aspect of the cruise experience has been designed with the needs and interests of the Titan traveller in mind.”

Brand new itineraries about Serenade 1 range from the six-day floral Dutch Waterways and the beautiful Keukenhof Gardens to the historic eight-day Southern German Romance and the stunning 16-day Grand River Voyage with Budapest.

The Dutch Waterways and the beautiful Keukenhof Gardens itinerary takes in the delights of the Netherlands from the comfort of the MS Serenade 1, including one of the largest arrays of beautiful flowers and tulips at the famous Keukenhof Gardens. The journey is rounded off with a cruise along the 17th-century waterways and canals of Amsterdam. Prices start from £899 per person based on 31 March 2017 departure (including a saving of up to £100 per person when booked before 30 June), including Eurotunnel or ferry crossings, five nights’ cruise on MS Serenade 1, 14 meals, three excursions and visits.

The Southern German Romance itinerary offers the chance to sail the Rhine and Main rivers , discovering the historic cities of Bavaria and the Rhineland before crossing the border to Alsace and concluding in the Swiss city of Basel. Along the way visits include the Unesco World Heritage Sites in Bamberg and Würzburg, plus the picturesque medieval town of Miltenberg and the seat of the European parliament, Strasbourg. Prices start from £1,399 per person based on 2 October 2017 departure (including a saving of up to £100 per person when booked before 30 June), including scheduled British Airways direct flights, seven nights’ cruise on MS Serenade 1, most meals, three excursions and visits.

The 2017 programme features a further nine cruises including a relaxing eight-day no-fly The Rhine in Flames with Koblenz cruise aboard the A-ROSA BRAVA. Taking in the Rhine’s spectacular scenery and historic cities it coincides with the exciting pyrotechnic displays of the Rhine in Flames festival in Koblenz in August. Beginning in the cathedral city of Cologne and sailing to Basel in Switzerland, the cruise will glide through the beautiful Unesco-listed Middle Rhine Valley to Strasbourg, Basel and Mainz, before returning to Cologne. Prices start from £1,549 per person departing on 11 August (including a saving of up to £100 per person when booked before 30 June), including seven-nights’ cruise, 20 meals, three excursions and visits.
