Passengers are from across the world and deny that this is a morbid cruise. Instead for some it has a personal link whilst for others it is part of their fascination with the Titanic. The cruise will hold a special memorial service on April 14. It will start at 11:40 p.m. in order to mark the moment when the Titanic hit the iceberg, and later at the exact moment when the ship sank.
The Titanic remains one of the world's most famous and devastating tragedies. It put mankind firmly in its place. The premise that the Titanic was unsinkable was shattered. 1,500 people lost their lives.
The cruise began on April 8 2012 and ill last for 12 days. It is not a cheap cruise and has cost passengers £2,799 ($4,445) to £5,995($9,520).. Passengers in the spirit of 1912 dressed in Edwardian style.
The Balmoral has 1,309 passengers on board and will retrace the journey of the Titanic, hopefully not to its final journey's end in reality though. It will however visit the site of the sinking of the Titanic.
