A century has sailed by since the luxury steamship RMS Titanic met her tragic end in the North Atlantic, plunging two miles to the ocean floor after sideswiping an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York.
A legend even before she sailed, her passengers were a mixture of the wealthiest, basking in the elegance of first class accommodations, and immigrants packed into steerage.
The Titanic is considered the world’s best known shipwreck. Today, more than 100 years after the sinking, the Titanic continues to have a large following. The story of the sinking has been the subject of numerous documentary films, several feature films, and countless articles.
The Titanic Survey Expedition will allow a select number of individuals to explore the vessel that was once the height of opulence, but whose journey would end tragically with the loss of more than 1,500 lives.
