Titanic disaster revisited on luxury cruise.
Titanic disaster. Looking for a way to celebrate the tragedy? Well, the British company Miles Morgan Travel is offering a Titanic Memorial Cruise coinciding with the anniversary. I’m sure you’ve got questions, so I’ve taken the liberty of putting together a little brochure to give you some more information.
Will the trip be a faithful reproduction of the original Titanic voyage?
You bet! You’ll depart from Southampton UK on Sunday April 8 aboard the MS Balmoral. The ship will travel to Cobh, Ireland–the Titanic’s final port of call. From there you head across the Atlantic Tuesday April 10th, Wednesday the 11th, Thursday the 12th, and Friday the 13th (uh-oh!).
