(Left: China from the RMS Titanic) The RMS Titanic. The name evokes a bygone era of luxury, leisure, and class distinction. The beginning of luxury travel as we know it. The largest liner ever built, the Titanic also had the most advanced culinary facilities afloat with three galleys, and a staff of eighty preparing and serving 6,000 meals a day. All that ended on April 14th 1912. That day marked the last meal in the Titanic’s first class dining salon which was served to the pinnacles of high society such as John Jacob Astor, Benjamin Guggenheim, Isidor and Ida Straus and of course, the Unsinkable Molly Brown to name a few.

The dishes won’t be on the original cobalt blue and gold china by Spode, but, if you want, you can have Spode recreate pattern R4331, for a hefty price tag.

About Michael L. Grace

During the mid-80s, Michael Grace worked as a writer on the TV Hit Series THE LOVE BOAT. He wrote many of the two hour special featuring great stars of the past, including Lana Turner, Claire Trevor, Anne Baxter, Ethel Merman, Alexis Smith, etc. The public’s access to these stars, in familiar dramas and comedies, made them want to go on a cruise. They could see the stars in an ordinary world as “regular” people. The phenomenally successful series was responsible for creating the cruise industry as we know it today. By the time he was writing for Love Boat, the great steamship companies and their liners were flying hand me down foreign flags, painted like old whores, scrapped or doing three day cruises to the Bahamas. He had sailed on over thirty ships and liners with his parents, aunt and grandmother in late 50s to early 70s. The very successful CRUISING THE PAST website has been an outgrowth of Michael’s strong interest in cruise and social history. Drawing on his own knowledge and a vast maritime and social history collection, he is able to produce a very successful website. Michael is part of the award winning team that created the internationally performed award winning musical SNOOPY, based on PEANUTS by Charles M. Schultz. He has written for television and films. Read more by going to "About" (on the above dashboard) and clicking "Editor"…
