The Titanic set out on its maiden voyage from Southampton, England on April 10, 1912. It struck an iceberg in the Atlantic Ocean on April 14, 1912 and sank the next day, April 15, 1912. The Titanic may be the world’s most famous cruise ship disaster, but there are certainly other famous ones. On May 7, 1915, during WWI, a German U-Boat sank the HMS Lusitania, with the loss of 1,198 passengers and crew. More recently, the Italian cruise ship, Costa Concordia, ran aground and flipped on its side in January 2012, Thirty-two people died and 64 were injured. And, the ship doesn’t always have to sink to have a disaster. On February 13, 2013, the Carnival Triumph suffered a catastrophic engine fire. The ship was adrift for almost a week in the tropical Caribbean, with no air conditioning, refrigeration or working toilets. Doesn’t that sound like a fun cruise?
