BACKGROUND

No other ship has cast a bigger shadow than the Titanic, which remains the most iconic vessel of our time.
On her tragic maiden voyage, more than 1,500 people died when the "practically unsinkable" ship hit an iceberg and sank on 15 April 1912.
Much has been written about the ship, its passengers and those who survived the disaster.  Click here, to take a look at some of the facts, as well as the myth and legend surrounding the Titanic
