How do YOU plan to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Titanic disaster

I suspect we all have different plans on what we will do on April 15 2012, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Titanic sinking...
It's still a few years off, but have you given a thought on what you might do?

I hope there is a cruise to the wrecksite- The cruise on the QM2 was apparently cancelled due to lack of interest- but we still have a few years- some people wait until the last second to male travel plans...

I was hoping to go on one of the Deep Ocean Expeditions dives to the wreck, but they haven't had access to the MIR subs for a few years- and the odds of them returning to titanic dim as another year passes...
I might just surround myself with my Titanic collection and watch all the movies...
No doubt james Cameron will re-release his Titanic movie in theatres- interest will spike- Titanic will be a fad again, then in a year or two will fade..
The Mayan calender predicts the end of the world in Dec 2012, so that shouldn't disrupt your plans for April ; )

Tarn, you would be excited to see this.

Your wishes have come true. Now comes the problem of actually having the money to get there

Not really. I'd like to be able to get to some sort of gathering/convention if I can but four years hence, it's not something I can really plan for.

Ben,is that cruise definately happening? I know something was planned for the QM2 but was cancelled-I'm just trying to figuring out what ship it will take place on-if no ship is lined up at this time, how do they determine how much space is still available?
If I send in a deposit for a 2012 Titanic cruise, I want to make sure it's for a sure thing..

I'm hoping that I'll end up going for the 100th Anniversary to New York. I'll go to the Statue Of Liberty and look out toward the Sea and contemplate the unfinished Voyage of a hundred years before.

I'm planning to be on the cruise, all being well. According to their website, they are supposed to be announcing a ship next year.

Hey Jason T,

D'oh! I meant to say crossing, not cruise.

I settle for a cruise. I'd be in heaven to get a crossing.

No what I settle for is a trip to New York City and the Statue Of Liberty. So I could contemplate the unfinished Voyage of The RMS Titanic.​

I expect a commemorative meeting of the German Titanic Information Centre will be held and I certainly will participate.

Hi George,

You'd enjoy it. It's an unforgettable experience, seeing the Statue of Liberty as you come in to New York.​

Howdy Jason,

Now that's what I thought.

Also Jason, I hope you enjoy your crossing.

Another thing I'm hoping to do for Titanic's Centennial is go to Boston and have a look through the records. That where my Swedish Ancestors came in at.​

Don't you know something about exhibitions in Belfast or other cities in 2012?
