Relatives of those who died on the Titanic are travelling to the place where the legendary sea liner sank to mark 100 years since the disaster.

A cruise liner is set to retrace the 20th century's most infamous voyage from Southampton in southern England and should arrive at the site of the sinking for the anniversary on April 15.

On the trip are 1309 passengers, the same number carried by the doomed liner. They will even get to choose their meals from the original menu.
