‘The largest steamers in the world’
Quite possibly the most famous liner ever built, RMS Titanic was the second in a trio of 'Olympic'-class ships constructed for the White Star Line from 1909-1915. At the time of her launch, Titanic claimed the title for the largest ship in the world and boasted a standard of luxury never before seen at sea. Tragically she was lost with 1,503 passengers and crew after striking an iceberg in the North Atlantic on her maiden voyage.
