On April 15, 1912, the ship that “God himself couldn’t sink” sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on its maiden voyage. The sinking of the immense British passenger ship known as the Titanic caused over 1,000 passenger deaths and is one of the most tragic maritime disasters during peacetime. Movies have been made regarding the legendary ship and today, the experience is brought to life aboard the Titanic, the Experience in Orlando.
The infamous Titanic was outfitted to surpass the standards of some of most of its glamorous passengers. It was built to accommodate more than 600 First Class passengers. Among some of its most illustrious passengers were the Countess of Rothes, John Jacob Astor IV and his wife, Madeleine Force Astor, and Macy’s owner Ida Straus.
Aboard the Titanic Dinner Event, you are treated to a peek into one of the most famous dinner parties in history with a sumptuous, three-course meal, and a chance to interact with some of the most famous passengers on board when Titanic was on its fateful maiden voyage. No worries though, this is one dinner that will not end as tragically as those on board the unfortunate liner.
The dinner menu includes:
• Fillet of Beef served with Mushroom Demi-Glaize
• Chicken Breast with Lyonnais Sauce
• Chefs Selection of Seasonal Vegetables
• Rosemary Roasted Red Potatoes
• Spring Mix Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette
• Vienna Rolls with Butter
• White, Sheet Cake with Raspberry Filling & Drizzle
Vegetarian and fish entrée meals are also accommodated, provided there is a notice of at least 48 hours prior to the dinner. Vegetarian guests are treated to Vegetable Penne Pasta in lieu of the meatier options. Meals for children include Chicken Breast with Penne Macaroni and Cheese. Each table may seat eight to ten guests at a time.
The package for the ship also includes a tour of the “Ship of Dreams” itself, complete with a re-enactment of the tragedy that occurred onboard on the fateful night of April 14 to 15 in 1912.
There is no dress code for the Dinner Event, but the guests are warned that they may be seated right next to “First Class passengers” so it is a good idea and all in the name of good fun that you come dressed as a First Class passenger yourself. Guests are also warned that it may get a bit chilly due to the simulation of the North Atlantic environment itself, so it is also a good idea to dress for a cold night or bring a coat or two with you.

Prices for adults are $64.95 + tax, for children ages 3 to 11 years old are $39.95 + tax. Children below 3 years old can attend the Dinner Event for free.
