The Titanic might have rested undiscovered at the bottom of the ocean floor for much longer if a top-secret Cold War navy mission hadn’t taken place. The previously classified story behind the Titanic’s discovery is part of National Geographic’s new exhibition “Titanic: The Untold story.”

Passengers compare scene inside Caribbean cruise ship to the Titanic after 50 rooms were flooded 

Passengers compare scene inside Caribbean cruise ship to the Titanic after 50 rooms were flooded The scene on board a cruise ship in the Caribbean drew comparisons to the Titanic as 50 staterooms on Deck 9 were flooded. A breach in the Carnival Dream’s fire extinguishing system led to water pouring into a corridor. One passenger said people had been relocated to the spa to sleep on yoga mats. Marla DeAnn Haase, a passenger, posted images of the flooding on Facebook . She wrote: “Um….FB folks…..this is a rare moment of internet connection ….we are flooding on a cruise, we heard the violins and the silverware all came crashing down. What in the world….say a prayer for us all.” That was a reference to violinists continuing to play as the Titanic went down.

Carnival Cruises said passengers affected would get full refunds, a 50 per cent credit for a future cruise, and could be flown home before the end of the cruise.

We also thank our crew members for their quick action and hard work.”
