Titanic II

A British cruise company is organising a cruise to mark the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the titanic, the ship will trace the exact route taken by the titanic and leave on exactly the same day as the titanic as well as having exactly the same number of passengers (not sure if that would include any stow aways that they did not account for).

The cruise leaves Southampton on the 8th of April 2012 and will arrive at the exact point where the titanic sank on the 14th of April, it is "expected" to dock in New York on the 15th of April 2012 the exact date 100 years on that the Titanic originally sank, OR WILL IT?

Apparently tickets for the cruise start at 1,999 Pounds sterling and go up to 7,995 - I somehow don't think I would tempt fate, would you?

Not at THOSE prices, I won't! If I could afford it, I would go, but I wouldn't sleep and I wouldn't go below deck.

Totally agree Keith, and thank you for all your comments on my blog, please email me at oceanos.survivors at gmail dot com - I have been travelling and as soon as I have my feet firmly on the ground I will try and find out what happened to the captain and the crew at this stage I think he may have changed his name as I can not find anything on the web.
