A passenger of the MS Balmoral Titanic memorial cruise ship gazes out to the Atlantic Ocean following a memorial service marking the 100-year anniversary of the Titanic disaster in the early hours of April 15. The Titanic passenger liner was built in Belfast, and sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on its maiden voyage from England to New York, in the early hours of April 15, 1912, after colliding with an iceberg. More than 1,500 people perished in the sinking.
A memorial store featuring the names of those who died was unveiled in the Northern Ireland city on Sunday morning.
