Titan Travel Group has rebranded its Grand River Cruises programme under the Connections brand as it targets independent travellers.
Unlike Titan’s other products, Connections’ holidays are not escorted by a tour manager and the operator’s VIP UK airport transfer service is only included on selected upgraded cabins.
Grand River Cruises director Hugh Clayson said: “By rebranding the brochure we want to attract independent discerning travellers who want a cultural journey through Europe and Russia.”
Clayson said the boats, operated by US-based Uniworld, are less formal than Peter Deilmann’s and all the crew are English-speaking.
“The Uniworld name doesn’t mean anything in the UK. That suits us as we want to get the Grand River Cruises’ name across.”
The 2008 programme includes three new cruises: a seven-night Rhine Discovery from Nuremberg to Basel from £1,295 per person a seven-night Danube Discovery, from Vienna to Nuremberg, from £1,395 per person and a 15-night Ukraine, Black Sea and Istanbul itinerary from Kiev to Nessebar in Bulgaria. Prices start from £1,895 per person.
