The ship that arrived to pick up survivors from the Titanic was the RMS Carpathia, operated by the rival Cunard line from 1903 to 1918. (Carpathia itself was sunk, by a German U-boat in World War I.)

"The first life-boat reached the Carpathia about half-past five o'clock in the morning," recorded one of the passengers on the Carpathia. "And the last of the sixteen boats was unloaded before nine o'clock. Some of the life-boats were only half filled, the first one having but two men and eleven women, when it had accommodations for at least forty. There were few men in the boats. The women were the gamest lot I have ever seen. Some of the men and women were in evening clothes, and others among those saved had nothing on but night clothes and raincoats."
