Sinking of Titanic to be remembered

The 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic is to be marked in April 2012 with a once-in-a-lifetime cruise experience following the ship’s original route in 1912.

Passengers will enjoy an entirely Titanic-themed cruise including a memorial service in the early hours of the morning of April 15, 2012 above the original Titanic vessel that lies in the Atlantic, exactly 100 years after the ship sank that horrific day.

The Balmoral, a liner operated by Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines – whose parent company Harland and Wolff built the Titanic – will leave Southampton, England on April 8, 2012 and begin its journey to Cobh, Ireland, where the Titanic made its final port of call on April 11, 1912. Passengers can enjoy a Titanic heritage shore excursion in Cobh.

The cruise will continue following the route of the RMS Titanic and arrive over the spot where the Titanic sank on April 14. A special memorial ceremony will be held between 11:40 pm when the ship hit the iceberg and 2:20 am on April 15.
