Here’s an frightening headline that accompanied a news story on the Toronto Star’s website: “Titanic replica to re-enact namesake’s ill-fated voyage in 2016, says Australian owner.” The thought of cruising has never appealed to me—I don’t want to go on any vacation that I can’t easily abandon if I’m not enjoying it—but that’s one cruise I definitely want to avoid.
Upon reading the article under the headline I learned that the said Australian owner expects the planned voyage to go all the way from England to New York. That’s hardly an precise reenactment, now is it? So much for historical accuracy.
