Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your journey to Southampton. Embark our ship in preparation for a late evening sailing.
Day 2 - Cruising River Seine - Rouen, France (overnight)
Slicing through the gorgeous lush-green countryside of Normandy's regional natural park Boucles de la Seine Normande, the route of smaller ships like Braemar along the River Seine presents unforgettable views to enjoy in comfort on board. Simply sit back, relax and take in stunning scenes of rolling valleys, floral fields and charming communes dotted with historic churches and traditional houses that have inspired many famous artists over the years, including Claude Monet and Henri Matisse. We’ll arrive in Rouen in the late evening.
Day 3 - Rouen - Cruising River Seine
The ‘City of a Hundred Bells’, Rouen is the capital of the French region of Normandy. This 2,000-year-old port city on the River Seine, important in Roman times and the Middle Ages, is a city rich with monuments and museums. The skyline is dominated by the spires of Cathédrale Notre-Dame, much-painted by Claude Monet. The churches of Saint-Maclou and Saint-Ouen are also must-see attractions, two of the best examples of Gothic architecture in France and an important part of Rouen’s history.
Day 4 - At sea
As we sail south, you’re free to do as much (or as little) as you wish. Maybe start your day off with a brisk walk around the deck. Or opt for a yoga class. Spend the afternoon learning a craft, or perfecting your golf swing. After your choice of dinner, you can catch a show or dance into the night.
Days 5-6 - Cruising Loire River - Nantes (overnight)
Much more than just the route into the heart of Nantes, the Loire - France’s longest river - is an undoubted highlight. Sailing this beautiful waterway makes for a relaxing and memorable experience, as you glide serenely through ever-changing landscapes, past charming cities, towns and villages. Nantes is a vibrant, friendly and welcoming city and we’ll stay here until the evening of day 6, so you have plenty of time to explore. The Château des ducs de Bretagne (Castle of the Dukes of Brittany) now serves as the Nantes History Museum and is a must-see. There are also several places to shop and enjoy a bite to eat or glass of wine in Place du Commerce.
Day 7 - At sea
With a variety of experiences, events, classes and much more to enjoy, each day on board can be as varied as you wish. Perhaps start your days with an energising early morning workout in the fully equipped fitness centre or refreshing walk on the open decks; try your hand at bridge, bingo, shuffle board and deck quoits after lunch, or perhaps indulge with a traditional afternoon tea; then in the evenings, enjoy sumptuous, five-course á la carte dining or a tasty buffet before catching a show - the choice is always yours.
Day 8 - Vigo, Spain
Situated on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, and with one of the world’s finest natural ports, the Galician gem of Vigo has been an important part of Spain’s maritime industry for centuries. Boasting a wonderful historic quarter, modern marina and pretty centre, this city is alive with attractions. The historic old quarter - like many of Vigo’s other attractions - is a great example of the influence the sea has had on the city.
Day 9 - At sea
Today is free as we continue our cruise. Enjoy a hearty breakfast then take your pick from the variety of activities on board. Show off your general knowledge in an afternoon or evening quiz. Try your hand at bridge, bingo or deck quoits. Or indulge in a traditional afternoon tea to while away your time. Top off the day with a sumptuous dinner or a simple tasty buffet.
Days 10-11 - Cruising Guadalquivir River - Seville (overnight)
The enchanting Guadalquivir is one of Spain’s longest rivers and a cruise along its winding course, through some of Europe’s richest, most fertile plains offers some fantastic natural scenery. Late morning, we arrive into Seville and dock overnight. Compact, rich in history and famous for its flamenco, tapas bars and orange trees, the capital of southern Spain’s Andalucia region, Seville, is bursting with antique charm. Located on the plain of the Guadalquivir River, Seville’s old Roman city is now home to three UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Days 12-14 - At sea
As we sail towards home you may want to rest after all your adventures. If you’re still full of energy, there‘s lots to fill your time - from quizzes, games and music recitals to walks on deck and dance classes. And of course there’s plenty of opportunity to enjoy all the tasty food options.
Day 15 Southampton
We arrive back early this morning and your Titan vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.
