Senior Travel on The Titanic

It has been 100 years since the Titanic made its voyage and had its  tragic ending. On this ship, there were souls from all over the world that died when the Titanic hit an iceberg and sank. The memory of this event is tragic. I have to say that commemorating the 100 year anniversary of this tragic event  is not something that I can feel celebratory about. Senior travel on the Titanic, is, however, is happening on a voyage that is traversing the same territory as the original Titanic. The voyage did not start out very calmly, as the fierce sea winds delayed the first day of travel.

The ship set sail Sunday from Southampton — as the Titanic did on its maiden voyage 100 years ago — on a 12-night cruise commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s sinking.

After being slowed by strong winds, the Balmoral reached Cobh on Ireland’s southern coast late Monday, the BBC reports.
