About
The SS Nomadic is known as Titanic's little sister. Built at the same time, by the same people, in the same Harland and Wolff shipyard as Titanic, Nomadic brought those boarding the great liner at Cherbourg to the ship. That was the start of an adventurous life, as she played a part in WW One and Two, carried many famous people to the great trans-Atlantic liners, became a floating restaurant in Paris and was saved from being scrapped by the people of Belfast.Now completely refurbished as a visitor attraction, you can walk in the footsteps of history, learn her story, and become part of the new chapter of her dramatic existence.

    An unexpected highlight of our visit to Titanic Belfast - definitely don't miss and allow enough time to explore
    I've reviewed Titanic Belfast separately, but wanted to leave a separate review for SS Nomadic as think it is worthy of being an attraction in its own right. Definitely worthwhile a visit of upto a couple of hours, so make sure you allow enough time to explore properly. The staff were so very friendly and helpful in telling us the stories of the ship and it was so interesting to explore. Walk the decks of the last remaining White Star Line vessel (SS Nomadic - the ship that ferried passengers to the Titanic) and see the different areas for the different classes of passengers and also the crew. Luckily the weather cleared up and we were able to go out onto the top deck too, which was great. I thought this would be just a very quick visit but we actually spent nearly 2 hours here! A visit to SS Nomadic was an unexpected highlight of our Titanic Belfast experience, it is docked just a couple of minutes walk away so be sure not to miss this!

    Would have loved to see her as a restaurant!
    Really interesting addition to the White Star Premium Pass. It's fascinating that she was a floating restaurant in Paris for so long, and I would love to have seen that. The main focus of the exhibit is not her role with the Titanic, although of course it covers that. Overall, interesting part of history- I would love to have seen her kitted out as a 1900s restaurant!

    Really interesting visit
    We visited the ship as part of our ticket to the Titanic experience which made it extremely good value for money. This was a really fascinating visit as it was so atmospheric to stand on the deck of a boat that ferry to visitors across to the Titanic itself. The narrative is really well displayed, and the interiors are excellent. Definitely worth visiting if you have the time.

    Back in time on the Titanic's little sister
    Our visit to the SS Nomadic in Belfast was a good quick experience. This historic vessel, known as the Titanic's Little Sister, provided us with a unique opportunity to step back in time and explore a piece of maritime history. Learning about the SS Nomadic's role as a tender ship for the White Star Line, including its service during both World Wars, offered valuable insights into its significance in maritime history. Exploring the various decks and compartments allowed us to envision the bustling activity that once filled the ship during its heyday.

    We went as part of the Titanic Museum. It was interesting and good to go on the real boat that brought the passengers to the Titanic. Worth a quick visit if you are nearby, even if you don't go to the Museum as well.

Very surprised this attraction is free! And it's well worth a visit. Very good covid precautions on board. There are interactive stations/ways of showing the history and the job of a "lighter", a means of facilitating boarding and disembarking from larger vessels. I didn't leave enough time to discover all the human stories described regards the passengers on board the Titanic. Will visit again next time in Belfast.

The Nomadic is included in the Titanic ticket. It doesn’t look much from the outside but it is well worth a visit. Large parts of its interior have been restored and tell the story of the French tender. It doesn’t take long and I was glad that I had visited her.

Lovely small ship docked down at the Titanic Quarter of Belfast. Lots of information on the history of the boat and reasonably priced to enter and it's one of only a handful of things open early on a Sunday, which is incredible considerig Belfast is supposed to be a City. More things to do down this end of Belfast wpuld be a treat.

This was a very interesting visit. SS Nomadic was the tender for Titanic and is the only remaining White Star Line boat. The guides were very helpful and friendly and took time to tell us about the history of the boat and how it had come to be beside the Titanic exhibition.

It was included in the price of our ticket to the Titanic Museum. Make sure you allow enough time to walk around the boat - probably about half an hour or so. Also make a note of the last entry time... we visited at around 3.15pm and they started clearing the boat of visitors by 3.45pm even though 4pm was the closing time. We had enough time though.

We visited alongside seeing the Titanic Museum. This tender has such a colourful history, not only with its link the Titanic, it was a really interesting exhibit. There are 4 floors which were all really accessible using the lift. Worth a visit if you're at the museum.

Unfortunately on the day we visited we were unable to venture outside due to the weather. We were however free to explore where some of the passengers whose names echo through history, started their journey on the Titanic. The tour guide was incredibly friendly, and knowledgeable.

I have walked past the Nomadic numerous times but I decided it was time to see inside Titanics little sister.

This was much more than I had expected. I suppose I had no real idea but the boat was set out in sections along class lines and it had other little displays showing the history of the Nomadic etc.

To see up close this little piece of Belfast history was special. From the tiny details like being able to touch the rivets and the portholes, to the reconstructed interior, this is well worth a look.

Incredible restoration job on the only remaining White Star vessel.
The tender used to take guests to the Titanic was rescued in a completely dilapidated state from the Seine in France where it had been butchered and wrecked and used as a restaurant. Found and brought back to Belfast in 2006 it took 7 years to restore here. A wonderful job and fascinating piece of history. Well done to all concerned.
