Yes, obviously, but you have to understand the pressure put on the RMS Titanic Captain, Edward John Smith to get to the USA in record time. It is so easy to use the captain as a scapegoat. I watched a TV documentary last year (?), that analysed why the crew on watch didn't see the iceberg in time. The documentary went into great detail about what the watch could actually see, looking ahead into the dark, with even a huge iceberg ahead. It was very interesting and informative, unfortunately I can't recall the details to find the documentary again!
If the Titanic had had all the modern navigation and satellite communication aids modern ships carry today, then the disaster probably wouldn't have happened. I say 'probably' because even modern ships can come to grief - call it human nature, negligence, or whatever! The sea can be very unforgiving at times!

Captain Smith of Titanic was following protocol at the time and even, after receiving numerous ice warnings, he ordered a more southerly course to avoid the reported icefields.
