Of the 123 passengers who embarked from Cobh (Queenstown) only 44 survived.
The Titanic was travelling at 22.5 knots when it hit an iceberg on April 15, 1912.
The Balmoral's top speed is 20 knots. We're currently travelling at 12 knots due to the heavy seas.
Because of the Balmoral's slower speed, the ship left Southampton on April 8, two days before the Titanic set out on his maiden voyage on April 12, 100 years before.
