Titanic ABC Miniseries: Famous TV Boats, Cruise Ships, Submarines And More (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:
"Titanic" ABC miniseries

Celine Dion's timeless "Titanic" theme song told us that the heart will go on (and on), but she never mentioned anything about the tributes to that ill-fated ship on the 100th anniversary of the Titanic's sinking. (Seriously -- we get it.)

To mark the occasion, James Cameron's 1997 Oscar-winning Best Picture "Titanic" got re-released in 3D; there were new forensics investigations conducted on “Titanic: The Final Word" on NatGeo, the channel that's also hosting a nine-hour Titanic-themed marathon of specials and documentaries on the anniversary, Sun., Apr. 15; and now we have "Titanic," a four-part miniseries (pictured, airs Sat., Apr. 14, 8 p.m. ET and Sun., Apr. 15, 9 p.m. ET on ABC) from "Downton Abbey" creator Julian Fellowes. And that's just the tip of the iceberg ... pun very much intended.

But the anniversary and influx of creative Titanic coverage only made us more obsessed with the ship at the center of it all. So we're raising our sails and saluting our favorite TV boats, cruise ships, submarines and other vessels (plus, their famous passengers, like Ryan Gosling).

Just sit right back (and click into our gallery) and you'll hear a tale, a tale of quite a few other famous TV boats. Ahoy!
