I have absorbed everything I could get my hands on about the Titanic for about 30 years (yes, before the James Cameron movie). To get a chance to see the birthplace of this historic ship in person was an opportunity I was not going to miss. The offices, the graving dock, everything was humbling. It also displays how impressive shipbuilding was at the turn of the 20th century. One recommendation if the tour company reads these: We went on the afternoon tour on May 10th. I can't remember the tour guide's name. It was obvious he has a lot of passion for the history of the Titanic, but he really needs to tone down the bitterness towards the new Titanic visitor center and the operators. The opinions he voiced I can not argue weren't valid, but after a while it seemed like sour grapes. I can understand not liking the commercialism of the center, but the trickle down effect should benefit the area and hopefully aid in preservation projects in the area, which should benefit the community as a whole.
