    My last 2 cruises were both bigger than titanic. Still, for 1914 standards shr was built like a brick shithouse, just not enough bricks

    Not true...Bricks don't float...Think maybe the Titanic had too many bricks!

    There is still concrete boats floating.... as in engines, cb's alternators, and in boats this still rings true.... It's all about displacement. LOL.... Sorry JJD I had to on this one.
