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.

Um, will being a part of this one get me wet? I don’t think the original one ended too well.
Richard, whether or not you get wet will depend on which person from history you choose to travel as. Choose a real person or fictional character. . .your choice. 🙂

It could promise to be a study in heroism… one of my absolute favorite subjects. Personally, I like to rub shoulders with such people whenever I get the chance. Having heard the climate in the north Atlantic can be brutal this time of year, though, I am planing to take along a fur coat. I have an odd feeling that, and my press pass, will prove invaluable…
