Bespoke London-based travel company, Blue Marble Private, will take groups of passengers on an eight-day journey off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada, to visit the Titanic, which lies shipwrecked at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.

RMS Titanic collided with an iceberg four days into her maiden voyage on 14th April 1912 from Southampton, England, to New York City. Her loss has become the most famous disaster at sea in history.

Guided by a crew of experts, a limited number of travellers will glide over the ship’s deck and famous grand staircase capturing a view that very few have seen. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and expedition is designed for those with a truly adventurous spirit.

Nine clients have already signed up for the experience, which will cost US$105,129 per person. This is equivalent to a First Class passage (US$4350) on RMS Titanic’s inaugural – and only – sailing, after adjusting for inflation.
