Let us creep you out further: the itinerary will begin in Southampton, England and sail to Cobh, Ireland, where the Titanic made its last port call. Next stop is of course the ice fields of the North Atlantic, where the ship will stop at the approximate coordinates of the Titanic's sinking in order to conduct a service at the approximate time when some 1,500 people lost their lives.
As if dancing on their watery grave wasn't fun enough, The Balmoral (assuming it hasn't decided to join the Titanic by now), will dock next at Halifax, Nova Scotia with the intent of visiting what else but a graveyard, in which Titanic victims are buried. The cruise will then end in New York City, at which point we like to imagine the whole of the ship's passengers sullenly offloading directly into a matinee of The Little Mermaid on Broadway.
Titanic fan or not, would you go so far as to trust a boat full of sunken ship enthusiasts in the middle of a cold, dark Atlantic ocean? All ashore, we say, all ashore! In any case, April 2012 is sure to be a month full of Titanic documentaries on the History Channel, and that's good enough for us.
