I heard more of a chance now due to global warming - the bergs are floating more to the south than they used to.

That would be incredibly accurate... waking on the morning of April 15, after dawn, to see icebergs floating nearby. The technology on ships these days will keep us quite safe, but to feel the cold air, see the icebergs, and know this is what the survivors on Carpathia saw 100 years before... it could only add to the authenticity of the experience.

I dont know if it is within the policies for me to post the website. Here is a USAToday article which lists the website where you can go to find out more about the trip: http://travel.usatoday.com/cruises/legacy/item.aspx?type=blog&ak=88121.blog

the trip is not until April, 2012. As long as staterooms are available, there is no "deadline".

If you can't get onto the Titanic Cruise, United Airlines is offering a Twin Towers flight from Boston that may interest you.

I didn't find that amusing. This cruise will go to the wreck site to perform memorial services, broadcast images to schools on three continents, and to honor those who died in the waters.

Just an FYI, there are many memorials to those who perished at the WTC site, and I myself have been there to reflect and give homage to those who perished.

On this trip are passengers from the UK, New Zealand, Canada, Switzerland, Germany, France, Ireland, and from the states of Alaska, Connecticut, NJ, MD, NC, SC, FL, IL, CA, MA, Missouri, and LA. Several other states are represented as well who are going for many reasons.

I agree with you Will. No humor in that comment.

The Titanic cruise is simply to mark the 100th anniversary of the tragedy at the site where the ship went down. If you have a problem with that, don't go- you won't be missed.
Cheerio.

I'll be attending as one of the speakers. It will be an amazing time, and is is conciderably cheaper than the other Titanic memorial cruise that will be departing from England, and there will be so much going on. I think it will be much more hands on, activity centered than the trek out of Southampton.

This cruise will be extra convenient for me, as it will depart from Boston, and I just happen to live in Boston.

Here is the website of the Titanic cruise 2012 out of Boston:

Sail to the site of the RMS TITANIC and enjoy a complete learning experience aboard the AZAMARA JOURNEY.


Throughout the voyage Titanic researchers will give presentations on various aspects of that fateful night in 1912. Some will discuss the ship, others the passengers...
One person made a dive to the wreck a few years ago and will discuss that experience, and another is an avid collector of Titanic memorobillia and will give a presentation on that topic. I worked for several years at the Titanic Artifact Exhibit, and that will be my topic of discussion....

Here is the itinerary:

The CNN article from 9/22 has sparked a frenzy in the amount of people interested in this trip.

I find this comment amusing as it serves so well to highlight the absurdity surrounding global warming. Ice was in the path of the Titanic that fateful Sunday in 1912 because it had been an unusually warm winter and the bergs and pack ice had drifted further south then was normal.

So here we have a case of unusually warm weather over 100 years ago, that contributed to one of the greatest maritime disasters in history. Too bad Al Gore wasn't around he could have just blamed the whole thing on global warming and then there wouldn't have been a need for two separate legal inquiries in two different countries in to the cause of the disaster.

Your ignorance of the world around you is showing. Maybe you should go back and re-read my comment. I didnt say the sinking 100 years ago was because of global warming. Just repeating a news story that I heard. I suppose the polar bears are dying of starvation because they don't feel like hunting? It probably has nothing to do with the fact that the polar ice is melting.

I'm sure your expertise and scientific qualifications on global warming make your "absurd" opinion correct, and thousands of scientists worldwide wrong.

The Cruise now has scheduled 21 sessions of different interests and content. I'll post them very soon on the website for those who are interested.

We have been getting interest and bookings from Australia, France, Ireland and several Spanish speaking countries.

The new itinerary of sessions is available on the website.

This was released yesterday:
School Children Worldwide to Benefit from Titanic Cruise Aboard Azamara Journey

School Children Worldwide to Benefit from Titanic Cruise Aboard Azamara Journey

We have two categories sold out, limited availability in several, but plenty available at this moment. Already this morning, the website has over 400 hits just from the press release of the Educational component.

We will release information about our Titanic 2012 Memorial within the month, after we get reviews from descendants of Titanic passengers. So far, with the responses we've received, it has been unanimously supported.

Azamara has been tremendously supportive and willing to make this an incredible trip for our guests on board. I've learned a lot about the cruise industry behind the scenes, and appreciate their willingness to work with us.

FYI...

Although the ships are going to the site of the Titanic wreck - you won't see the Titanic since it is underwater almost 2 miles deep.

There is a company that plans on sending down a submersible on the same day - but this is not yet affiliated with the Balmoral and Azamara Journwey which are planning on doing this voyage.

In the submersible are scheduled to be Sir Richard Branson and Kate Winslet (who starred in the movie). Hopefully the submersible will be taking some pictures and sensding them to the surface, but there is no guarantee.

I have to amend the statement above as I just spoke to the person who runs that submersible, a Mr Rob McCallum.

The rumor that Richard Branson and Kate Winslet were going down inb that submersible was not ture - they have not booked it, and the submersible is not even scheduled to be there.

This story was published just last month:

Kate Winslet, Richard Branson to visit Titanic wreck in 2012 - Celebrity News - Digital Spy

But Rob is the guy who has taken director James Cameron down to the Titanic every time says "Well, I read the story, too, but they never called me."

Question Why Boston?

Wouldn't it make more sense to have it start in New York, where the Titanic was going, than Boston? I don't see any reason to embark in Boston when that was not the Titanic destination port.

Yes, it would make more sense - but since Titanic never arrived, I guess you could say it doesn't make that much difference.

This trip from Boston includes an excursion in Halifax, and will have descendants from actual passengers of Titanic on it. For one of the three memorial services, the Azamara band on board will play some of the same songs the actual Titanic band played.
