Those visual effects are (for the most part excluding the prison shot) amazing!

It is a shame we don't see more practical / model effects in films nowadays. The most recent to knowingly do this was Blade Runner 2049 but we sadly won't be seeing any thing similar any time soon...

Back to topic, and if that is Olympic (it could maybe be the France with the raised bridge and low funnels?) they definitely did their research with her, she was so well built, not even a tsunami and a boiler explosion could destroy her. ;)

Also, I wonder which unlucky ship this is? Maybe the Leviathan, the Imperator or the Majestic?

And think what a mess that would be, all the ships flooded in New York City and the harbor itself! It reminds me of the ship stuck in Manhattan in The Day After Tomorrow and a similar scene in When Worlds Collide.

This is the cargo ship next to the New York Public Library in The Day After Tomorrow.

This is the scene from When Worlds Collide.
