The Titanic had been designed to carry a total of forty two lifeboats however, when she set sail only twenty of these boats were onboard.

For instance the movie Titanic (Cameron, J. Titanic.1997), with the early scenes beginning with the underwater salvage of several objects off of the wrecked ship. We are also introduced to one of the main characters, Rose, as an old lady. The beginning of the film, actually appears near the end in terms of the sequence of chronological events, and therefore becomes an example of prolepsis. The viewer learns the ending with the ship now resting at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, before the event actually occurs. Although the history of the Titanic is generally known, therefore it then becomes dramatic irony, but purely in the case of the movies narrative it is a good example of prolepsis.
She and her husband are still valued today as the forerunners of our modern bridges. The towers of the bridge are built of limestone, granite, and Rosendale cement.

On April 10, 1912, the ocean liner sunk with some of the richest people aboard to people even deprived of their basic rights as they are devastated with poverty in everyday life. These deprived people were travelling in hope of a better life. Little did they know of the fate that lay before them! I refer to this to emphasise how big a part social class does affect people’s life chances because coming from a sociologists point of view when looking at the deaths of these innocent people the majority of people who died were 3rd class citizens.

You can hop from ship to ship and travel from coast to coast and spend very little money. You will see mostly the sea towns, but 80% of the world lives within 300 feet of sea level. Don't want to work on a ship? Many will have separate rooms and take on a small number of passengers at a minimal fee. The rooms aren't luxury, cruise ship cabins, but are still clean and affordable, and you are looking for cheap travel.
