We appreciate your patience and, if you have a minute, we invite you to read and comment if you like on some of the Titanic tidbits we’ve posted below.
The White Star Line’s R.M.S. Titanic was proclaimed “The World’s Largest Liner.”
The steamship company repeated the phrase on many promotional announcements and in advertising before the Titanic was launched.
Passengers on the Titanic had their choice of on-board restaurants in which to dine. The Titanic had five kitchens in operation that served three scheduled meals a day.
Breakfast was served from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m.
Lunch was served from 1:00 to 2:20 p.m.
Dinner on the Titanic was served from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.
First-class passengers had their own dining room. Three dozen employees on the ship were responsible for washing plates, silverware and glassware.
Did you know that Cobh in County Cork, Ireland was the Titanic’s final port of call? Probably not.
Cobh was renamed Queenstown, in honor of a visit by Queen Victoria, with that being the seaport town’s new name from 1849 to 1922, a period during which the Titanic existed.
Before this period and since, Cobh was and is Cobh.
