No. Titanic had two sister ships, Olympic and Britannic. Olympic was the first of the trio of ships, and she sailed the Atlantic successfully until 1935, although with two major mishaps, a collision with the British warship HMS Hawke in 1911, and a collision with the Nantucket Lightship in 1934 which sliced the Lightship in half; seven of the 11 Lightship crew members were killed. The third of the sister ships, completed after Titanic, was Britannic. There is some indication that she was to be named Gigantic, but the name was changed to Britannic after the Titanic tragedy. Britannic never sailed in commercial passenger service; she served as a hospital ship for the Royal Navy on the eve of World War I. In November of 1916 Britannic struck a mine and sank in the Aegean Sea.
