Titanic 100 Years Anniversary Expedition

The RMS Titanic was the brainchild of the famous White Star Line, which specialised in luxury passenger vessels, and Harland & Wolff, the Irish shipyard that designed and built her.
 
268 metres long, Titanic was not only the largest moving object ever built by man, she was also the most opulent. More than 14,000 labourers and craftsmen poured their hearts and souls into her design, construction and appointment, toiling on her for four long years.
 
On the night of April 14, 1912, the unsinkable Titanic, just days into her maiden transatlantic crossing, struck an iceberg and immediately began to take on water. Within a few short hours, the greatest ship in the world had come to rest on the bottom of the ocean, taking with her the lives of more than 1,500 people.
 
The mystique surrounding the Titanic disaster has diminished little over time. Each generation has held the memory close, preserving it in books, music and movies. Today, the story stands as modern myth: a luxurious dream ship brimming with the Gilded Age's celebrities and its steerage class; a technological wonder so sophisticated, so sound, as to be deemed invulnerable and 'unsinkable'.
