Hard to believe it's been so long since members of the Hoosier Chapter, Victorian Society in America set sail on the Titanic, but we certainly had a great time! And most importantly, we all lived to tell.
Cruise director giving some notes to passengers...
November 13, 2010- Elegantly attired passengers were greeted at The Propylaeum with scents and sounds such as Titanic's final passengers were treated to almost 100 years ago. What followed was course after course--eight in all--from the Titanic's 1st class dinner menu, as speaker, Craig Ware intermittently popped in to provide commentary on the clear night, sailing conditions and other insights.
After dinner, passengers were further entertained by Craig's brief talk about his experience as a Titanic enthusiast, and relative of some of the lost passengers. Craig's presentation was polished, informative and entertaining. Guests were so fascinated, they stayed long after dinner ended to have Craig answer their many questions.
