The Olympic and Britannic were the sister ships of the RMS Titanic. The Olympic was launched before the Titanic, and unlike her unlucky sister Titanic, which sank on April 14/15, 1912,She has a long and illustrious career, earning herself the nickname "Old Reliable". The third sister, Britannic, was not so lucky, and sank while serving as a hospital ship!
