Eight Crazy Ways to Commemorate the Titanic’s Demise
Tempt Fate by Retracing the Titanic’s Route
If experiencing the Titanic’s journey via 140 characters isn’t enough, aficionados can take to the seas themselves to trace the Titanic’s route. British travel agency, Miles Morgan Travel, is offering two Titanic Memorial Cruises one eight-day journey that leaves from New York City on April 10 and one twelve-night voyage that leaves from the Titanic’s actual departure point in Southampton, England, on April 8. The Southampton cruise aboard the Balmoral will sail the exact route of the infamous ship, eventually meeting the other liner at the Titanic’s sinking site for a memorial service at 2:20 a.m. on April 15. In an odd, rather eerie twist, the Balmoral is owned by Fred Olsen, whose parent company is Harland and Wolff, who built the Titanic. Too close for comfort? Not for 1,300 plus fate-tempting enthusiasts. We can only hope they hired a few more watchmen to be on iceberg duty.
