Titanic. This name is usually associated with the movie when we all meet Jack and Rose. This just makes it even more sad than it was. But it’s more than that because it was never supposed to sink. And it became the most well-known tragedy in history. In 1912, this was supposed to be a luxury transatlantic ship.

It embarked on its maiden voyage from Southampton, England with the destination of New York, USA. Unfortunately, it would never see American shores.

This disaster killed almost 1,500 people. It was designed to be completely safe, or so they thought, but who would have thought.

At 23:40, two sailors said that there were icebergs in the water, but unfortunately, the message came too late. Around 00:30, the first boat, which was the first boat with only 12 passengers, was launched, although it had initially been tested for the weight of 70 men.

Two hours after the iceberg hit, the Titanic sank.

    I know that I died on the Titanic. At age 10 or so, I voraciously read everything I could about the doomed liner – and felt an intense connection. I was fascinated with some of the stories of the passengers. Two newlywed couples from my area, Deephaven, MN were on the Titanic. I can’t recall the couples’ names but one young groom commandeered a life boat, as he had experience sailing, on my beloved Lake Minnetonka!

    About 23 years ago, there was a Titanic exhibit at the Science Museum in St. Paul, Minnesota. I cried, viewing items that were brought to the surface: clothing, eye glasses, china, bottles of wine, etc. We were given a name at the beginning of the tour. Of course, I was one of those who perished.

    I’ve had many readings, to glean, who was I on this ship. Always felt that I was in third class, can’t imagine the terror, of not being allowed to get to higher ground. The last reading I had was that I was a woman in my late teens, 1st class, who gave up my seat on a life boat, for a third class mother and child. That makes my altruistic heart happy. However, I will not know the truth, until I’m on the other side.

    I think naming an ocean liner Titanic, is a HORRIBLE idea!! and, I’ll never partake of an ocean cruise – need to see land.

  2. Fifty thousand dishes on the menu? What?
    And yes the pictures dining room was probably for first class only but the other classes had very good dining facilities, even the lowest class had better than on any earlier ships.
    The lifeboats were likely not filled because when they first started getting loaded, people did not really believe the ship was sinking and nobody realized that if you didn’t get in a lifeboat you were doomed.

  3. If another ship came by right after it sank to take that photo why didn’t they rescue them I know it’s just a movie but in the movie the closest ship was said to be 4 hours away.
