If you cruise the Caribbean your chances of hitting an iceberg are small.:cool:

Great movie, though.

 

I disagree. I guessed the ending way too early in the flick. I mean, it ain't no Smokey and the Bandit.

 

My wife has watched it a number of times... maybe thinking if she watches it enough, the ending will change?

Every lifeboat drill, reminds me of the TITANIC. The TITANIC is the reason they started to have lifeboat drills. The TITANIC was the largest ship in 1912, but is roughly the same size as the HOLIDAY.

(HOLIDAY is the smallest and oldest ship in the Carnival fleet).

I had a fun job in 1996 being part of the team that made the models for the T movie.

Thank you for the reminder re. lifeboat drills!

Sure they're a pain, but you GO to them...you attend. :cool:

Usually portrayed visually as a huuuuge towering ocean liner

Titanic was in fact quite small by today's standards!

I saw a show on the greatest maritime disasters - the three worst were German ships that were attempting to evacuate citizens during the war. Horrible life loss. Titanic was mentioned as a footnote. The life loss on three ships approaches 25k. RIP to all who have gone to a watery grave.

The Titanic struck a iceburg and went down with 2,223 souls onboard. Of which only 706 survived. RIP.

 

WoW...

 

Maybe will be graced with the presence of Captain Edward John Smith?:cool::eek:
