A friend of mine, Janice Thompson, is running a virtual Titanic cruise on Facebook to promote her forthcoming book about the Titanic. I ran into Janice at a writing conference this past weekend and she told me all about it.
The captain for this cruise is the great-great-niece of Edward Smith, who was the captain of the Titanic on its ill-fated first voyage.
If you want to join this virtual cruise, which debarks on April 10, 2012, you need to hurry, because it’ll all be over on April 15, 2012. Join the Queen of the Waves virtual cruise on Facebook!
You can choose to travel first class, second class, or third class. Or you can choose to sign up as a member of the crew. I don’t think you can choose to be Leonardo DiCaprio or Kate Winslet.
