On the 15th April it will be 103 years since the day the Titanic took its maiden and final voyage. At the time of service the titanic was the largest passenger carrier line in world, the ship itself could carry 2224 passengers and was designed to be the most luxurious of its kind.
The ship started its voyage from Southampton on April 10th 1912, it then called in at both Cherbourg in France and Cobh in Ireland to pick up more passengers. The Titanic then embarked on it voyage to New York, unfortunately during the trip it became the victim of a freak accident. The ship was struck by a large iceberg sinking the ship and horrifically killing all but 70 of the 2224 passengers on board.
