AAA's Grandma Marge Announces Titanic 100th Anniversary Remembrance Tour To Ireland

THE VILLAGES, Fla., May 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As the 100th anniversary of the storied Titanic voyage continues to captivate millions around the world, AAA South has partnered with CIE Tours International to create a brand new vacation adventure dedicated to this fascinating chapter of history. The Titanic 100th Anniversary Remembrance Tour is a 7-day, all-inclusive vacation package to Ireland highlighted by a visit to the just-opened Titanic Belfast Experience, pronounced by National Geographic as the travel attraction of 2012. The fully escorted tour convenes in Dublin on September 9.

The program is the brainchild of "Grandma" Marge Koser, who is well-known to residents of The Villages Florida and throughout the southeast U.S. as the mover-and-shaker behind AAA South's sold-out annual Mystery Tours. "This year, I decided to create a vacation package focused on the Titanic's centenary, which is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that is simply too good to pass up. The entire trip will be a fascinating adventure incorporating many special and exclusive highlights that few people will ever get to experience," the master travel planner says.

The fully escorted luxury motorcoach tour begins in Dublin and then heads to Belfast, the ship-building capital where the Titanic was forged. Grandma Marge's travelers will enjoy a full day at the $150-million Titanic Belfast complex, feeling all the wonders of the ocean liner and the lives of those who sailed on board her fateful maiden voyage. From there, the tour returns to Dublin where the exclusive itinerary includes an evening with diver Rory Golden, the first Irishman to reach the submerged vessel, where he honored the doomed passengers and crew by placing a memorial plaque on the broken bridge.  The adventure continues with a guided walk along the Titanic Trail in the charming seaside village of Cobh, led by renowned Titanic Historian Michael Martin, and a cruise of the harbor providing an intimate look at the ship's final port of sail.

No visit to Ireland is complete without kissing the famed Blarney Stone at Blarney Castle or a photo stop at the Rock of Cashel, both highlights of the trip's final days. The excursion wraps up with dinner at Taylor's Three Rock in Rathfarnham, where the group will enjoy a rousing evening of authentic Irish song and dance before returning home.

"Our Titanic Anniversary Tour is sure to be one of our most popular ever. We can hardly wait to get there!" Grandma Marge says.
