Maiden Voyage

8 items

RMS Titanic departed on her maiden voyage at 12pm on 10 April 1912. Large crowds gathered at the ocean terminal in Southampton to see her off. Prior to departure some passengers, including Lawrence Beesley and Adolphe Saalfeld had welcomed guests on board to show them around the new ship. The voyage was almost cut short by a near disaster with the SS New York as Titanic steamed slowly passed laid up ships on Southampton water, but swift action averted a collision and after a short delay she reached open sea and set course for Cherbourg.
