It is 100 years since the ill-fated British passenger liner, the RMS Titanic, collided with an iceberg that resulted in around 1514 deaths. Now the journey of the doomed ship is being retraced aboard the MS Balmoral to commemorate the centenary of the sinking of the liner. The Titanic Memorial cruise is a 12-night voyage with the same number of 1,309 passengers excluding the crew aboard the MS Balmoral. Included in the passenger list are relatives of the survivors, historians and authors apart from people fascinated by the Titanic story.
To recreate the environment, meals provided on the cruise are from the Titanic’s original menu. There will also be a five-piece Grupetto band from Belgium hired by the organisers to play era style music in honour of the Titanic’s musicians who are said to have played until the ship sank. The cruise from Southampton however left two days earlier than the Titanic as it cannot steam as fast as the latter. The ship will trace the same path as the Titanic that is, via Cherbourg in north-west France and Cobh on the south coast of County Cork, Ireland, to exactly the spot where the liner sank 100 years ago.
