These were the very same facilities used by Thomas Andrews, the first architect of Titanic, as well as the renowned Irish shipbuilder Lord Pirrie, who was involved in the construction of Titanic and also its sister ships, the RMS Olympic and the RMS Britannic.
It might not seem as if anything more could be added to the Titanic package, but not so fast. Titanic Channel.tv and Titanic Hotel Belfast have announced that they are to run original Titanic-related documentary content in the hotel’s bedrooms.
The partnership between the TV channel and the hotel is set to “enhance the experience of guests,” representatives note in the press release. John Paul Doherty, who owns the Titanic Hotel in Belfast and also one in Liverpool, believes the new arrangement will provide a memorable Titanic experience.
“This is a world-first for hotel entertainment options. TitanicChannel.tv has produced a schedule of unique and fascinating documentaries, especially curated for the hotel presented by world-renowned Titanic expert hosts,” says Doherty in the release.
He remains aware of the fact that not all hotel visitors and guests might seek out 24/7 immersion on the safe of the unfortunate vessel that was doomed to sink on its maiden journey in 1912. Because of that, Doherty adds, “the TV schedule for the hotel has been carefully curated to appeal to both the casual viewer and also to Titanic enthusiasts.”
Don Beret, co-founder of the Titanic Channel as well as its Executive Produce, said, “We are very pleased and proud to have the channel available in this wonderful hotel in the very heart of the Titanic world and appreciate the unique opportunity provided by Mr. Doherty. We are looking forward to a long association with Belfast and the Titanic Quarter.”
