Titanic memorial cruise arrives in NYC

Associated Press
A passenger in evening dress  hurries as he goes to check in for the MS Balmoral Titanic memorial cruise in Southampton, England, Sunday, April  8, 2012. Nearly 100 years after the Titanic went down, a cruise with the same number of passengers aboard is setting sail to retrace the ship's voyage, including a visit to the location where it sank. The Titanic Memorial Cruise is set to depart Sunday from Southampton, where the Titanic left on its maiden voyage. The 12-night cruise will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the White Star liner. With 1,309 passengers aboard, the MS Balmoral will follow the same route as the Titanic. Organizers are trying to recreate the onboard experience  minus the disaster  from the food to a band playing music from that era. Organizers said people from 28 countries have booked passage, including relatives of some of the more than 1,500 people who died when the Titanic collided with an iceberg and sank on April 15, 1912.(AP Photo/Alastair Grant)
