SS Nomadic is a former tender of the White Star Line, launched on 25 April 1911 in Belfast now on display in Belfast's Titanic Quarter. She was built to transfer passengers and mail to and from RMS Olympic and RMS Titanic. She is the only surviving vessel designed by Thomas Andrews who also designed those two ocean liners, and the only White Star Line vessel in existence today.
Nomadic was one of two vessels commissioned by the White Star Line in 1910 to tender for their new ocean liners RMS Olympic and RMS Titanic, which were too large to dock in Cherbourg Harbour. She and her running mate SS Traffic ferried passengers, their baggage, mail and ship's supplies to and from large ocean liners moored offshore.

Fantastic ship. So much history. Our son Cosmo thoroughly enjoyed his time aboard. Gayle was amazing. Absolutely passionate about her job, Good to see. She even told us about Sir Cosmo which our Cosmo thought was fantastic.

Small but perfectly formed. An interesting, tactile experience to add to the other titanic offerings. Book the white star pass to make the most of your trip.

Enjoy the tour, great for able-bodies. Delighted they've kept it for our generation to see and many more to come!!

Definitely worth a little visit to pair with the Titanic experience from the museum. It gives you that extra visual aid to life onboard back in the day. Glad it survived all this time!

What a ship! You can feel the history when you walk on! To know that JJ Astor & Molly Brown, amoung others, walked on that actual staircase en route to Titanic was quite something.

Nice to see as part of the Titanic tour I'm not sure if you can choose to see this only but it's not as good at the main attraction, kids enjoyed the little exercise to spot and note down figures placed on ship to get certificate.

Very well done attraction. Really interesting to see. Bravo belfast.

Fascinating insight into the world of Titanic with a refurbished boat that was built to service its passengers. Amazing staff provide great knowledge and bring the vessel to life. Worth every penny. Suggest to do this before the Titanic Museum - it's in the price but this closes earlier.

An absolutely beautiful piece of history! As the only surviving ferry to the Titanic, it has been beautifully restored to its original condition. The SS Nomadic was also pressed into service during World War 1 and World War 2. I highly recommend visiting this treasure while you are touring the Titanic Quarter of Belfast, Northern Ireland!

Not much to see inside apart for the ship but it is really great that they managed to save last White Star Line ship that was build in Belfast's Harland & Wolff shipyard in parallel to Tytanic and Olympic. Worth a visit especially that it is a part of ticket to Titanic Museum.

Good exhibit, a piece of history that intrinsically linked with the Titanic. Entrance to SS Nomadic can be purchased separately onboard, however it's included in the price of Titanic experience just nearby. I recommend to see this one after the Titanic museum visit.

Awesome to be able to walk the decks of Titanic's tender ship and see a small bit of the luxury of the White Star Line. Also amazing to hear about the restoration efforts and how they saved it from being scrapped. After going through the Titanic museum, you could easily spend another hour or two on this ship, reading and participating in the exhibit.

Beautifully restored ship and its like walking back in time as this was the tender ship for titanic its also the only surviving white star line ship in the world. Definanlty worth going to see. The nomadic was included with our premium titanic tour.

The SS Nomadic is an integral part of the Titanic experience. Since you can't feel what it is like to be on the Titanic, you can stand on the very ship that shuttled people to the Titanic. It's a beautiful ship that has been well preserved and lovingly restored. There are several interactive, high tech, exhibits on the ship. Upon entering, you can imagine the anticipation that the passengers felt as they were being ferried to the Titanic. If this was the shuttle, you can only imagine the scale of the Titanic. I certainly recommend visiting the SS Nomadic. It's directly across the street from the Titanic Experience building in the dry dock that was used to build many ships. The whole experience is a little expensive when you are traveling with multiple people but children under 5 are free.

A fascinating piece of history, with many twists in it's story. Note: entry is included when visiting the Titanic, so definitely go there first. Plus you'll be able to understand a few more of the references in this ship.
Fotis & Anna Vlachos | Aug 2, 2018
Worth a visit. As it's free if you pay for visiting Titanic don't miss it. I liked the holograms and the atmosphere inside.
陳欣怡 | Jun 28, 2018
Small but full of details. You can really get the feeling of the time when the ship was serving with Titanic by both exploring the ship and dress up the cloth provided in the ship. Good place to wander and relax.

Went to a birthday on the boat. It was great to be on the boat and was run very well. The only issue was it was a hot day and the boat was like a sauna and the upper deck was closed after a certain time for safety which is understandable, but it was a little uncomfortable
