Is the Titanic cruise cursed? The MS Balmoral — a luxury cruise liner carrying 1,309 passengers — is tracing the 1912 route of the Titanic but has already run into trouble just days into its journey. The ship departed England on Sunday and was headed to France and Ireland before embarking on the journey to America. The ship’s progress was first delayed by strong winds, then yesterday (Tuesday, April 10th) after the ship left the port of Cobh in Ireland, it had to turn back after a passenger developed heart problems. Once the ship reached within helicopter range, the sick passenger was evacuated. The pickup was a success and the vessel is back on schedule.
