Titan (0800 988 5858, www.titantravel.co.uk), the multi award-winning escorted tour operator, has launched a new series of both ocean and river cruise brochures for 2014. These include a new Escorted River Cruise brochure along with a new Cruise & Tour brochure and the third edition of its deluxe river cruise programme in exclusive partnership with Uniworld.
The third edition of the 2014 Uniworld brochure showcases some of the grandest and most scenic waterways of Europe, Russia, China, Vietnam and Cambodia, aboard Uniworld’s fleet of exquisitely appointed floating boutique-style hotels.
On many of these itineraries that are some very significant savings at the moment, such as £2,050 off a 17-day ‘Timeless Wonders of Vietnam, Cambodia & the Mekong’ tour departing on the 2 September 2014. The cruise now costs from £2,999 per person (if booked before 28 February 2014) and contrasts the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, with the tranquillity of the Angkor Temple Complex in Cambodia and an unforgettable 7-night cruise along the Mekong River. Cost includes flights, all meals onboard, wine, beer and soft drinks with dinner, 7-nights in hotels on a B&B basis, 7-night cruise, many excursions and Titan’s VIP Home Departure Service.
The majority of vessels in the Uniworld fleet have been designed by Red Carnation Hotels and include original works of art, antiques and elegant furnishings. Each one has an average capacity of 130 guests, the highest staff-to-guest ratio in the river cruise industry and is now rated as a Six-Star experience with guaranteed river-view staterooms and exceptional award winning fine dining throughout.
A further enhancement to the VIP Home Departure Service for passengers travelling with Uniworld this year is the addition of friendly Titan airport representatives to assist in the check-in process.
