With the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic on the horizon, a memorial cruise has been scheduled to celebrate the occasion. The cruise will depart on April 10th from New York and will include a number of Titanic themed events. It is aimed to celebrate the life and death of the legendary vessel.
Those participating in the cruise will enjoy dressing up in Titanic era attire, enjoy freshly prepared dishes served on the vessel, and get to visit the graves of those who died in the wreck at a graveyard located in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Visitors will also get to participate in a nighttime memorial service in the middle of the Atlantic where the Titanic itself met the bottom of the ocean. Participants will get a first hand look at how the art of cruises have changed over the years and which elements have stayed the same.
With tickets priced from $4,900 to $14,850, the cost is extreme but the 100th anniversary cruise is sure to be a once in a lifetime experience. With the recent disaster of the Costa Concordia, much of the focus will surely be that sailing in the vast ocean relinquishes a great deal of control and people see that tragedies still do happen even during the modern era. The sense of adventure and willingness to partake in dangerous endeavors in unrelenting elements is part of the human experience and a testament to what makes this cruise possible.
This pleasure cruise is an all-inclusive look at the beauty of nature, the vulnerability of a person, and just how alluring the idea of a cruise can be. Gamble, take in a show, enjoy gourmet food, drink around the clock, enjoy the beauty of the ocean, and still feel like there is more to do. The Titanic anniversary cruise promises to be a look at the history of the Titanic and how the mistakes of the past have been used to improve the future.
