RMS Mauretania

RMS Mauretania was an ocean liner of the Cunard Line (rival of the White Star Line, the RMS Titanic's owner).

She is mentioned by Rose DeWitt Bukater at Southampton, where Rose states that Titanic "doesn't look any bigger than the Mauretania." Her fiancée, Caledon Hockley, is quick to assure her that Titanic is much more luxurious and beautiful as well as saying to Ruth that Rose is difficult to impress.

If the fictional Mauretania's fate mirrors that of the real one, she was scrapped in 1935.
