Titanic Memorial Cruise Delayed By Strong Winds

Operators of a memorial cruise retracing the route of the Titanic 100 years since it sank say it has been slighly delayed because of high winds.

A spokeswoman for the Titanic Memorial Cruise said the MS Balmoral arrived Monday at the town of Cobh, on Ireland’s southern coast, about two hours later than scheduled due to the bad weather. Cobh, once known as Queenstown, was the Titanic’s last port of call before it crossed the Atlantic in April 1912.

Rachel O’Reilly said the boat, carrying 1,309 passengers — inluding relatives of some of the more than 1,500 people who died — will now leave Cobh around midnight. It is heading for the North Atlantic site where the ship hit an iceberg and sank.

The Balmoral left southern England’s Southampton Sunday for the 12-night cruise.
