I loved the movie and wish I could see the ship. Anon.

RMS Titanic was a British passenger White Star liner that sank in the North Atlantic on 15 April 1912, after striking an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southhampton to New York City, via Cherbourg in France and Cobh in Ireland. The watertight compartments were breached and there were insufficient lifeboats for all of the passengers. Over 1,500 of the 2,224 passengers and crew perished.  This is one that several children asked for when they heard about the project.
