Cruise to mark Titanic centenary





A travel company is to mark the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic with a cruise following the route, it has announced.

The Titanic, built in the Belfast shipyard of Harland and Wolff, sank on its maiden voyage in April 1912, with the loss of more than 1,500 lives.

The Balmoral, operated by Fred Olsen Cruise Lines, whose parent company now owns H&W, will recreate the voyage.

The 97th anniversary of the sinking was marked with a ceremony in Belfast.

Wreaths were laid at the memorial in the grounds of the City Hall, followed by a minute's silence.
