R.M.S. Cedric - Arrived in New York City on 11 April 1912 “RMS Cedric was laid down in 1902 at the shipyard of Harland and Wolff, Belfast. RMS Cedric was the second of White Star’s series known as the “Big Four”, the other three being RMS Celtic, Baltic and Adriatic. Celtic was the first ship to exceed Brunel’s SS Great Eastern in overall tonnage, which was quite an accomplishment, considering Brunel’s giant ship held the size record for almost 40 years.
