Did You Know?


Famous American author Morgan Robertson published a novella titled The Wreck of the Titan in 1898. It is a fictional story about a large passenger liner that struck an iceberg while sailing in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Ironically, the storyline in Robertson's book contains very striking resemblances to the events of the RMS Titanic, despite it being written fourteen years earlier. See more »


Even though the Titanic had a Ritz-inspired restaurant, it did not have a two-story tea room with huge windows. There was not enough room on the ship for such an establishment. See more »


Captain Smith: "Low, low. Breathe and blow, wind from the western sea. Over the rolling waters go, come from the dying moon and blow."
Second Officer Charles Lightoller: Sir?
Captain Smith: On my word, I have not thought of that verse since I was a cabin boy. Love of the ocean brought me to the sea as a lad and there's still wonder in it.

Probably the best.
24 December 1998 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

When I saw the real movie about Titanic (Kate Winslet f. ex.) I thought that I would never see a better movie. But then I got bored with it but I still considered it as the best movie, but when I saw this Titanic, everything changed! This movie was so real, much more real than the other Titanic. And actors were excellent! So, I think that this movie is very much better than any other Titanic movie!
