The 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic will be marked with a cruise that will follow the same route the Titanic originally took in 1912. The departure is set for the beginning of April 2012 which marks 100 years since the Titanic sank on her maiden voyage and more than 1,500 people lost their lives.
The 2012 cruise on The Balmoral will carry 1,309 passengers, the same number that sailed on the original Titanic voyage. The twelve night cruise will arrive at the location where the boat sank, which will be marked by a special memorial ceremony held between 11.40pm, when the ship struck the iceberg and 2.20am on 15 April, when the Titanic actually sank.
The cruise will then continue on to Halifax, Nova Scotia, where passengers can visit the Fairview Lawn Cemetery where 121 Titanic victims are buried.
There is no doubt that this unique trip will be a once in a lifetime opportunity and will recreate the food, dance and music from the original sailing.
