In honor of the 100th anniversary of the start of Olympic's maiden voyage from Southampton, I am posting a link to the 6-15-11 New York Times announcement.

THE OLYMPIC SAILS.; Largest Completed Vessel Afloat Begins Her Maiden Voyage.

LONDON, June 14. -- Despite the efforts of the strike leaders to hold her up, the Olympic of the White Star Line, the largest completed steamer afloat, got away from Southampton on her maiden voyage to New York early this afternoon.

The whole run of the NYT coverage of Olympic's maiden voyage, beginning with her departure from Liverpool and ending with her return to Southampton, appears in this thread.
