Relatives of dead to be on board boat commemorating Titanic

RELATIVES of those who perished on the Titanic are among those who will board a cruise to mark the 2012 centenary of the sinking of the vessel, it was revealed yesterday.

A ceremony will take place on board the cruise ship Balmoral 100 years on from the exact time the Titanic hit an iceberg in the North Atlantic on the night of April 15, 1912.

The Balmoral will retrace the route taken by Titanic, from Southampton on April 8, 2012, to New York.
