100th Anniversary of Titanic


You've probably seen the movie trailer by now that features the return of of the HUGE blockbuster "Titanic" coming back to the big screen, but this time in 3D. Are you excited to see it? Are you wondering why they'd bother since we've all seen it at the theater, on TV, and probably own the DVD?

Part of the effort includes a tribute to the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the actual Titanic on April 15th. (I suppose the other part is to simply make a boat load of money.)

Possibly the most famous ship in the world, the Titanic was the largest passenger ship of her time. When the Titanic sunk after striking an iceberg in the Atlantic Ocean, 1,517 souls of the 2,223 passengers on board died in the icy water, making it one of the largest peacetime maritime disasters in history.

Changes in maritime law were made as a result of the sinking of the Titanic and people continue to be fascinated with its history and morbid story. No doubt you'll see documentaries about it on TV this weekend, the 3D movie debut, Titanic memorabilia sold on Ebay and everywhere else, and special events in cities around the world.

The renewed Titanic hype also includes a cruise line that is offering two memorial trips across the Atlantic. Fred Olsen's Balmoral will follow the route of the Titanic and has been booked for months, while the second cruise on Azamara Journey which stops mid-Atlantic at the Titanic sinking site, still has cabins available.

While some people think the idea of a cruise honoring death is macabre, there are still others who consider it a fitting tribute. "I think it's a wonderful idea," posted Jennifer on the Cruise Critic UK blog. "The fact that so many people still think of the ship and its victims warms the heart...I do believe it's a special tribute to the people on board that night."

Down to the smallest detail, these two cruises will feature food, decor, music, activities and all the ambiance of the historic Titanic's fateful trip.

One of the lessons learned is that changes were made to maritime legislation because of the Titanic's disaster. Too often we have to experience something horrible before we make changes to laws to protect us. When it comes to drinking water legislation, conversation still tends to circle around ways to prevent past water disasters from occurring again.
