The RMS Olympic was a British ocean liner that sailed for the White Star Line from 1911 - 1937, She had a successful maiden voyage that began on June 14, 1911 and ended June 21, 1911.

HistoryEdit

The Olympic was involved in an accident with a navy battlecruiser, the HMS Hawke, both ships got seriously damaged and almost sunk. Olympic was repaired and delayed Titanic's maiden voyage to March, she was involved in another accident in 1912 and delayed Titanic's completion to April. Olympic received distress calls from her doomed sinking sister, RMS Titanic, 500 miles away. But Olympic was too far away to assist her sister. Olympic was refitted as a troop transport in early 1915. She sunk a German U-boat in 1918, she got awarded later for her outstanding service. Olympic later sunk a Nantucket lightship in 1934 but this one was by mistake, the U-boat she sunk in 1918 she did on purpose. She was decommissioned in 1935 after aging and to make way for new ships, she was sold to a British ship scrapper in 1936 and she was scrapped the following year, 1937. Most of her fittings can be found at the White Swan Hotel in Alnwick, Northumberland. The a la carte restaurant can be found in a cruise ship, Celeberity Millennium. The hull can be found at a junkyard in Jarrow where she was scrapped.
