A lot of people don't know that the Titanic was one of three ships built along the same design. It's the second that was launched . It's sster ship, the Olympic , had completed several successful trips before the Titanic had its ill fated maiden trip in 1912. Then after the sinking of titanic , it and her other sibling, the Britannic, were upgraded for safety . The Britannic was sunk in 1916 during the war as she was fitted as a hospital ship
The Olynpic served during the war then was refitted as a luxury liner to run until the 1935.
What I think is interesting is that when the Titanic was sinking, the Olympic was steaming to her rescue . Was only 100 miles from her but was ordered back. The reason was tht it was thought that the drowning passengers of the Titanic wouldn't want to get on a ship identical to the one they came off of. What kind of logic is that??
