For some, it might sound too much like tempting fate — and for others, it smacks of "disaster voyeurism". But for more than 2,000 Titanic enthusiasts, the chance to mark the centenary of the maritime disaster by sailing on a large cruise ship to commemorate the sinking on the very spot of the tragedy is proving difficult to resist.
To mark the centennial of the Titanic’s sinking, a British company is offering a chance to reconstruct the ship’s fateful journey by traveling to the location where the ship sank.
Marketed towards relatives of those on board, as well as history buffs and those who are simply curious, Titanic Memorial Cruises has organized two voyages that will retrace the transatlantic journey.
When it comes to famous voyages, the trip of the RMS Titanic is likely one of the most well-known in the history of the travel industry. While the voyage ended in catastrophe, a Titanic Memorial Cruise is retracing the exact route, and serving the same menu, to mark the 100th anniversary of the Titanic disaster, as reported by the Post Chronicle. While the Titanic Memorial Cruise is sold out, another 100th Anniversary Memorial Cruise from New York is offering cabins for 50 percent off, as reported by USA Today.
