Who goes on Titan Travel cruise ships?
Firmly aimed at Brits, Titan Travel holidays are only on sale in the U.K. and republic of Ireland. In addition to London airports, regional flights are available for passengers living in northern England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands. Titan's customers tend to be mature family groups, couples and single travellers and many will have previously travelled on the company's land tours.
Do I have to dress up on a Titan Travel cruise?
There's no strict dress code for dining on Titan river cruises. Smart casual is the norm, although most passengers like to don a suit or cocktail dress for the weekly captain's gala dinner. During the day the accent is on comfortable, casual clothing with good walking shoes for shore excursions. The various lines feature on Titan's ocean cruise programme have individual dress codes -- if any at all -- and Titan will advise at the time of booking.
Is everything free on Titan Travel cruises?
Just about. Titan designs its own river cruise itineraries and sailings on its exclusive chartered ships and vessels operated by other companies include a very large number of inclusions and extras in the fare. On all sailings these include VIP home pick-up service -- with unlimited mileage throughout the U.K. mainland -- flights from London and regional airports -- with meet and greet service at Heathrow and Gatwick -- all meals with wine, beer and soft drinks with lunch and dinner, bottled water in the cabin replenished daily, 24-hour tea and coffee, and Wi-Fi. On sailings with lines such as CroisiEurope all drinks are included. Inclusions on ocean cruises vary from line to line and a Titan representative will run through them at the time of booking.
Notably, Titan's price promise protects early bookers, meaning passengers are guaranteed the best price once their deposit is paid. If Titan reduces the price after a booking has been made, it will contact customers and refund the difference in cash.
What are Titan Travel’s most popular activities?
River cruise passengers can expect daily shore excursions, sometimes a choice of more than one, which will feature guided walking tours in ports of call and coach tours to places of interest such as vineyards and castles. The Quietvox system, used by guides to relay information via personal headphones on excursions, has been recently improved to include a GPS-guided commentary so independent, active passengers can embark on self-guided walks at ports of call. After a day's sightseeing nightly entertainment tends to be low-key, with passengers generally enjoying cocktails and conversation in the lounge bar, with occasional live music or performances from local singers, musicians and dancers. Some cruises have onboard activities such as learning how to waltz in Vienna or painting miniature wooden clogs in Amsterdam.
