The RMS Titanic, launched in April 1912, is one of the most famous of the mighty ocean liners on which the rich and famous plied the seas in an era before British aviators John Alcock and Arthur Brown made their first pioneering non-stop transatlantic flight in June 1919. A Royal Mail Ship built by Harland and Wolff in Belfast, Northern Ireland as the pride of the White Star Line with the finest modern luxuries of her era, Titanic departed from Southampton, England with additional passengers boarded at Cherbourg, France and Queenstown (Cobh), Ireland en route to New York City.
Titanic-related landmarks include Cape Race, a Marconi station in Newfoundland as the first point of radio contact in the New World for the inbound luxury liner, marine museums devoting permanent exhibits to this famous ship and various memorials to Titanic passengers and crew.
Like the path of the ship itself, this itinerary runs from east to west, crossing the North Atlantic Ocean from Europe to North America.
