Titan pushes the boat out by chartering MS Serenade 1 for a full 2017-18 season

For the first time ever Titan, the escorted tour and cruise operator, has exclusively chartered a river cruise vessel, the MS Serenade 1, for a full season in 2017 and 2018.

Titan took ownership of the 4-star, 68 cabin vessel in March 2017 to ply the tranquil and picturesque waters of the Rhine, Danube, Main and Dutch Waterways.

Having already sold well for its 2017 departures, the new programme features 18 varied itineraries for 2018 departures and three new Christmas 2017 itineraries to some of Europe’s finest festive markets.

Prices start from £629 per person, for a five-day Rhine Christmas market cruise, plus early booking discounts of up to £250 per person on selected departures, subject to availability).

Commenting on MS Serenade 1, Andy Squirrell, MD for Titan, said “We’re excited to be offering a chance to explore some of Europe’s finest waterways in true style and comfort and by chartering our own vessel. We have been able to tailor all aspects of the cruise, from the itineraries, excursions and cuisine to the inclusions and on-board ambience, specifically to suit UK travellers”.

The ship has been refurbished to Titan’s specifications. The 68 superior outside cabins are located across three decks offering some of the most spacious cabins on Europe’s rivers, with French balconies on the two higher decks.

The cabin interiors have a contemporary décor with minibars, tea and coffee making facilities and generously sized bathrooms, with each having a bath as well as a separate shower. To the rear of the ship are two 22 sqm suites with full private balconies and a private seating area.

The spacious Panorama Lounge provides a place to relax during the day and is the hub for musical entertainment or to enjoy a cocktail by night. The Sun Deck and Sky Lounge provide scenic 360 degree views and for those looking to keep active there’s an on-board gym and revitalising sauna.

In the relaxed elegance of the restaurant, dishes on the four-course lunch and dinner menu reflect the regions through which the ship is sailing, using locally sourced ingredients for a true flavour of the area. Breakfasts are made to order and for those who are still a bit peckish a midnight snack is served in the Panorama Lounge.

Varied, included onshore excursions provide opportunities to appreciate the best of each location with Titan’s experienced tour managers, as well as local guides, to add knowledge of a favourite café or hidden local gem.

The new five-day Traditional Christmas Markets on the Rhine offers the chance to embrace the festive season with prices from £629 per person based on 14 December 2017 departure (including a saving of up to £100 per person). There’s time in the cities of Koblenz, Frankfurt, Rüdesheim and a walking tour of Mainz, taking in magnificent squares full of festive wooden market stalls.

Also new is the chance to celebrate Christmas in style with an eight-day Christmas on the Rhine
cruise. Prices start from £1,499 per person based on 21 December 2017 departure (including a saving of up to £50 per person).

In March 2018, the season kicks off with a six-day Dutch Waterways and the Beautiful Keukenhof Gardens cruise. Prices start from £1,149 per person departing 31 March (including a saving of up to £100 per person).

For those seeking a longer cruise, the comprehensive 17-day Eastern European Odyssey starts from £3,249 per person based on 11 June 2018 departure (including a saving of up to £250 per person). Sailing through seven countries, this journey follows the Danube River from Budapest to Romania’s Black Sea Coast.
