A cruise in memory of the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic is set to depart from the U.K. on Monday — but its departure is being delayed by strong winds.
That's the latest report from BBC News on the cruise of the MS Balmoral, which is set to travel from Southampton to the site of the Titanic's sinking, before heading onto Nova Scotia and ultimately to New York City. The supposedly unsinkable Titanic struck an iceberg April 14, 1912, and sunk a few hours later on April 15 — killing more than 1500 of its nearly 2300 embarked passengers.
The Balmoral memorial cruise will include a menu derived from the earlier cruise as well as historical lectures and presentations.
