Dine on the RMS Titanic
Come dine as a first class passenger to mark a century since the sinking of RMS Titanic.
The Titanic Commemorative Dinner, hosted by Coastguard Wellington, is on Saturday, April 14, at the James Cook Hotel.
Hotel executive chef Charles de Villiers will replicate the menu that was presented to the first class passengers the night before the ship hit an iceberg early on April 15, 1912.
Keynote guest speaker Trevor Montgomery is a veteran deep ocean explorer, having dived 3.81 kilometres to the Titanic. He has come over from Australia especially to share his experiences at this commemoration.
Mr Montgomery has also gifted items to Coastguard Wellington from his dive to the Titanic. These will be auctioned off during the evening and all proceeds from the night go towards the funding for a new special service craft for Coastguard Wellington.
The dinner starts at 7pm in the Chancellor One Room. Reservations are $150. For enquiries and bookings, ring 479 1840 or email Titanic email@example.com.
