Visited the "Save Nomadic" stand at the Titanic: Made in Belfast exhibition, and learned that she will be back home this July, although the exact date is still to be finalised. It is costing more to bring her home(being transported on a barge) than it was to buy her in the first place. Lets all do what we can to help.

More details of how Nomadic will return to Belfast have been released. She will indeed return in July this year, but she will be transported on top of a submersible barge, not towed by a tug. A UK company, Anchor Marine, has won the contract to bring her back.
Roll on July!

I was watching the latest TV news report about Nomadic. It is thought that she can be restored in as little as a month, as she is in good condition, and most of her problems are cosmetic, ie. she just needs painting.

What to do with her after this was also discussed. The following are a few of the ideas;-
1. She could be used as a restaurant, as she was in Paris.
2. She could be part of the proposed Titanic exhibition.
3. She could be used for the purpose she was built - transporting passengers.
23 Cruise Liners are due to visit Belfast this year. It was mentioned that Nomadic could be used to ferry passengers to and from the Cruise Liners in to Belfast. How cool would that be? I think people will book cruises that come to Belfast just so they can be ferried upon the very vessel that carried people to Titanic.

I must state that these are only ideas, so don't get your hopes up (or book tickets) just yet.

Those are very interesting ideas. I like some of them, but I think it would be appropriate if Nomadic was made into a meseum reflecting her years of service and the history of the White Star Line. Something like that maybe... But it would be neat to be ferried out to a cruise ship on the same tender that serviced the Titanic.
