The same number again are new no-fly cruising holidays to destinations as diverse as Greenland, Cape Verde and the Ukraine – bolstered by the popularity of cruising closer to home.

The new brochure equally appeals to those wanting immersive UK escorted tours that are strong on both culture and history. Further afield Titan’s tours for 2012 focus on giving the traveller a real sense of geography, sights and scenery.

Each tour begins and ends with the unique Titan VIP Home Departure Service ensuring that Titan passengers arrive at their destination relaxed and ready to enjoy the tour.
