|Description||The deadliest peacetime sinking of a superliner or cruise ship in history|
The RMS Titanic (Royal Mail Ship) was a British passenger liner, operated by the White Star Line, which sank in the North Atlantic Ocean after striking an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton, UK, to New York City. Of the estimated 2,224 passengers and crew aboard, more than 1,500 died, making it the deadliest sinking of a single ship up to that time.
Some accounts hold that it was not the Titanic that sunk, but the rebranded sister ship RMS Olympic  as part of an insurance scam.
