The MS Balmoral set sail from Southampton on Sunday, the same place where the Titanic set sail 100 years ago. The ship is retracing the path of the RMS Titanic for the centennial memorial of its sinking. Chris Buckler, correspondent for our partner the BBC, is on board the MS Balmoral.

Nice interview with the BBC correspondent on the Titanic memorial cruise. But you really should learn to pronounce the name of the ship correctly -- it's the Balmoral (Bal-MORAL. not BAL-mo-ral). It's the name of the Queen's country estate in Scotland, so harldy unknown.
Also, tell that landlubber BBC Ulsterman on board that the "back" of the ship is called the stern.
All the best
