Fancy a cruise on board the Titanic Mark II?
Christ on a stick, talk about tempting fate. British company Miles Morgan Travel are to commemorate the centenary of the Titanic disaster in 2012. Guess how they're going to do that, then? Go on, it's not difficult. That's right - they're taking reservations for a cruise following the original route of the ill-fated vessel, although hopefully they're not following it too precisely.
The transatlantic cruise from Southampton to New York will include a memorial service on the morning of April 15, 2012 in the exact location where the Titanic went down with the loss of 1,500 lives. The ship is hoping to sail with 1,309 paying passengers - the same number that sailed on the Titanic - and serve a menu identical to that now resting on the ocean floor.
