  • This visit is to be made following the visit of the Titanic Museum, if only to soak up the differences between the first and second class, even on the last ferry under the French flag.

  • I spent around 10 minutes in this boat. To say it's the last surviving boat of the White Star Line, I just had to see it for myself. Time on this boat was included with the Titanic experience, which w...  more »

  • Totally worth it. Make time to visit it as this grand piece of history is more concrete in providing a feel of a ship of the Titanic era than the main building. Our kid had fun following the trail of rooms and searching for characters. We are a traveling family originating from Colorado, so we had been to Molly Brown’s house in Denver. She was featured here amongst other passengers, and the staff member (Gayle, who took us under her wing for the visit!) knew a lot about her also. Make sure you ring the bell and press the button to interact with the holograms on board. The ship itself has a fascinating and diverse history, and is the only remaining White Star Line boat that exists. We spent about 1.5 hours here, which includes looking around inside the ship and outside at the surrounding plaques and art around the dry dock. The ticket is included with the Titanic Belfast ticket so make sure you use it! To do so, you will need a FULL day at the site to see everything. Don’t miss the tall vertical sculpture about a 2 minute walk away towards the marina. It’s a very clever piece of art once you recognize what it is!
  • It was our second visit there. First one 10y ago. This thing changed a lot. In good way. Staff was very friendly and helpful and they had good knowledge too.
