Titanic Memorial Cruise Is a Disaster Waiting to Happen

Posted by Nicole Fabian-Weber on Jan 12, 2012 at 2:46 PM

I admit, I'm wary about going on cruises to begin with. Something about waking up and not being able to see land with the naked eye, pirates, and international waters being lawless just doesn't appeal to me. But one cruise I don't want a G.D. thing to do with, besides the Kate Gosselin cruise, is a Titanic Memorial Cruise.

Apparently, I'm in the minority, though, because, shockingly, every single passenger slot has already been snatched up on this nightmare of a vacation. Who would want to do this?

The ship sets sail on April 8 on this year from Southampton, UK, and will head to the spot where the Titanic sank 100 years ago, on April 15, to spend two full days. It will then (God-willing) continue on the original Titanic's intended route, to Halifax and then on to New York City. The ship is made to look like the original, and people can even dine on the same food the original passengers dined on. Relatives of those who were on the first Titanic will be in attendance, and a memorial service will be held at 2:20 a.m. the night it sunk.

See, the thing about this is it sounds like the exact opposite of a vacation. It sounds like a terrible, panic-strickened mess of a situation, where something's bound to go wrong. I'm all for boning up on history, but I certainly don't want any part of a re-enactment of one of the most tragic events in history. Especially while I'm on vacation. I'm trying to see the other side of this here -- truly, I am -- but I honestly can't. I can only see a giant red flag and a neon sign saying, "Bad Idea Jeans!"

Like I said, though, I'm an anti-cruise person to begin with (and general scaredy-cat), so perhaps I'm biased. I don't really think so, though, because, seriously, I'd take a seven-day Kate Gosselin extravaganza over this any day.

Would you want to go on the Titanic Memorial Cruise?

I'm also anti-cruise. I've never been on one and am terrified of them. This sounds cool, but I'd be too worried something would happen!

It sounds really morbid.  I like cruises, but I think that I would like my destination to be someplace other than a watery grave.
