Hi Debby.
Her arrival in New York was scheduled for Wednesday April 18.
Had it been for Bruce Ismay though, she would have docked one day earlier. ThatÕs why he made Capatain Smith speed her up to full capacity.

Regards, Jean

I wouldn't say 22.5 knots after 7 p.m. was her full capacity - Olympic comfortably did 23 knot average crossings several times during the 1920s, albeit with new propellers and oil, but before 1915 she maintained for 24 hours in the Atlantic 24.2 knots aided by the gulf stream.
