Titanic was the dreamship, the unsikable ship. It was supposeed to sail from Southampton harper and be in New York 17th of April. But the dream ship never made it to New York. The story of Titanic is both tragic and adventures. The passenger were both poor and very wealthy. They were seeking adventure in a new country. Some went to travel other went to live the American dream and start a new life. The dream for many people came to an end on 14th of April. The unsinkable ship went down after hitting an iceberg. Titanic had 2,224 passengers with the crew members and only 20 lifeboats. The lifeboats could only carry 1.178 people. The tragic event cost 1500 people their lives and only 705 people survived.
