It all started with a love for the movie Titanic, the characters, a love of the Edwardian era costumes & jewelry. My husband said "you should have a store" so then came my storefront, The Pearl's Water Street Boutique & two weeks later my husband finished building our Titanic Movie Museum & it opened up to the public. I was basically content to have a place to showcase the collectables that I had acquired, but the word got out, newspapers wanted interviews & the rest is history. My husband is our Public Relations Director, temp. graphic designer & much more. He is my soul mate & without his encouragement & support I would not be able to do most of what I do. Thank you dear!
From here, my dream was to have a Titanic Dinner Cruise, but didn't have a boat in mind until a friend mentioned the Detroit Princess Riverboat. so we contacted them & from there the vision took off full throttle. We took her to sea on April @5.2009...the dream kept going.
We have the utmost respect for the families of lost loved ones of this tragic event and we feel that the loss of their loved ones was not in vain, as many people today are keeping their memories alive by getting together. I believe that if they had the chance they would be happy that much good has come from such a tragedy. Check our Current Events page for up to date events such as the Anniversary Titanic Dinner Cruise we are planning for Spring of next year. Inquire early to make sure you get a seat!
We commend James Cameron, the cast & crew for doing such a wonderful job bringing Titanic back to light for those of us who barely knew anything about it until we seen the movie and for reviving a new found interest in such a beautiful luxury ship that carried with her so many hopes & dreams. The romantic story & beautiful song "My Heart Will Go On" will forever change history. We thank beautiful Celine Dion for lending her fabulous voice for this song. firstname.lastname@example.org
