People. Honestly.

From those nice folk at The Globe & Mail:

"Exactly 100 years after the world's most famous maritime disaster, a cruise ship is to recreate the fateful voyage of the Titanic, complete with dinners and dancing from the era.  The Titanic Memorial Cruise will depart from Southampton, England, on April 8, 2012 and head for the exact spot where the ship sank on April 12, 1912, between 11:40 p.m. and 2:20 a.m. the next day....Replica menus of food on the 1912 voyage will be served and there will be a fancy dress dinner and numerous lectures on the history of the famous ship". 
 
No indication has been given as to how authentic the trip will be once it reaches Sea Zero, so to speak, possibly because of insurance issues.
 
The relative dimensions of the Balmoral and the Titanic are quite some way apart.

She's not nearly as quick as Titanic so they might be OK!

...after careful checking of their website, neither "Health&Safety" or "Disembarkation" make any mention of lifeboats.

Some hope was raised by the "Going Ashore Independently" option but also no joy.

Good luck to them, but include me out.

Mr E - Thanks for that.

ASE - How utterly gutless of them. Can't say I fancy the jaunt much either.
