“Fifteen-hundred people went into the sea when Titanic sank from under us. There were twenty boats floating nearby, and only one came back. One. Six were saved from the water, myself included. Six out of fifteen-hundred. Afterward, the seven-hundred people in the boats had nothing to do but wait - wait to die, wait to live, wait for an absolution that would never come.”
— Rose Dawson, Titanic (1997)

The Royal Mail Ship (RMS) Titanic was christened and launched in 1912. This so-called "unsinkable" ship famously went down during its maiden voyage from England to America after striking an iceberg in the North Atlantic. It was the largest luxury liner ever built at the time.

The story of the Titanic has been relived in countless books, movies, permanent and traveling museum exhibits. Perhaps the most famous of these is the 1997 film starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

Tourists visit the wreck site each year, and a replica ship known as the Titanic II is scheduled to take its maiden voyage in 2022. Passengers will be able to relive their Titanic daydreams, as the BBC reports, "The ship, which has been designed to have the same interiors and cabin layout as the original vessel, will follow the route of the original liner carrying passengers from Southampton to New York." Around the world cruises will follow the maiden voyage.
