Titan Travel has unveiled a new river cruiser now bookable for 2021 departures on the Danube.
The chartered vessel, River Discovery II, will operate along the Danube next year before two further full seasons in 2022 and 2023.
Built in 2012, River Discovery II will be Titan’s largest vessel at 135 metres long. It features three decks accommodating 176 passengers across six cabin grades.
The ship’s deck plan comprises 59 double cabins with French balcony, 12 double cabins with upper windows, 12 Deluxe Suites measuring 23sqm and one 30sqm Owner’s Suite. The ship also has eight single cabins with two upper windows, allowing solo travellers to enjoy a river cruise without having to pay a single traveller supplement.
Decks are connected by a lift and there are two lounges and a sun deck. The Panorama Lounge on the middle deck comes complete with a retractable roof and panoramic windows and there is also a library and gym.
From 2020, all Titan’s chartered river cruises will benefit from a more advanced Quietvox system, including GPS-guided commentary and interactive maps. This allows guests to take part in self-guided tours of towns and cities included in the itinerary. All guests will also receive a Titan-branded reusable water bottle refillable onboard to reduce single-use plastic consumption.
Titan managing director Andy Squirrell said: “As Titan’s exclusive river cruising product continues to go from strength to strength, we’re delighted to unveil River Discovery II as Titan’s new chartered river cruise ship.
“As part of our continued aim to deliver the best river cruises available, River Discovery II will provide guests with a more premium offering, complete with spacious lounge areas, as well as our greatest range of cabin options suiting all budgets, including dedicated single cabins.”
An eight-day Majesty of the Danube river cruise is from £1,599pp full board, including four excursions. The price also includes Titan’s VIP door-to-door pick-up, services of a Titan cruise director and tour manager and return British Airways flights from Heathrow.
