YMT Vacations, the leading provider of affordable group travel packages, has added a tour of the new Titanic Belfast museum free of charge for all guests on the 2012 Best of Ireland tour and 2012 Ireland Farming tour.
The new visitor attraction opens on March 31, 2012 in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where the Titanic was built. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the maiden and only voyage of the Titanic.
“Titanic Belfast is set to become the most renowned museum experience across Ireland and Northern Ireland,” stated Jerre Fuqua, President of YMT Vacations. “Adding this attraction to all of our 2012 Ireland itineraries provides our guests the opportunity to discover the rich history of ship building in Northern Ireland and remember the legacy of the ill-fated Titanic.”
The brand new $150 million attraction is the World’s largest Titanic visitor experience, extends over nine galleries, and draws together special effects, dark rides, full-scale reconstructions and innovative interactive features. Guests can explore the Titanic story in a fresh and insightful way; from conception in Belfast in the early 1900s, through the construction and launch, to the infamous maiden voyage and catastrophic demise. The journey goes beyond the aftermath of the sinking, to the discovery of the wreck and continues into the present day with a live undersea exploration center.
