And if you are passing through China ... you can experience what it feels like to be a Mackem when they hit that iceberg in May.

A life-sized replica of the Titanic will become the centrepiece of a landlocked theme park in China, featuring a museum and a shipwreck simulation to give visitors a harrowing sense of the 1912 disaster.

The Chinese version of "the unsinkable ship", with a price tag of 1bn yuan (£100m) and an expected opening date in 2016, will be built at least 930 miles (1,500km) from the nearest ocean in the central province of Sichuan.

Su Shaojun, the chief executive: "We think it's worth spreading the spirit of the Titanic. The universal love and sense of responsibility shown during the Titanic shipwreck represent the spiritual richness of human civilisation.

"When the ship hits the iceberg, it will shake, it will tumble.

"We will let people experience water coming in by using sound and light effects … They will think: 'The water will drown me. I must escape with my life.'"

The Titanic sank on 15 April 1912 during its maiden voyage from the English port of Southampton to New York, taking more than 1,500 lives with it.
