RMS Olympic arrives in New York



Launched as the world’s largest moving object, at the time, the RMS Olympic set the records for size and opulence. Launched after the Lusitania and Mauretania, the Olympic class ships were designed for size, comfort, and amenities instead of impressive speed. Cruising at a modest 21 knots, the RMS Olympic could sail between Europe and America on a 6 day schedule.

​Surviving several crashes throughout her career, the Olympic had been nicknamed “Old Reliable” by the time she was retired.

​Of the three Olympic class ships, the RMS Olympic proved to be the longest lasting and most successful ship. We see the ship arriving in New York in the twenties.
