On May 31st 1911(also the same day her younger sister ship Titanic was launched, a fantastic publicity move), the RMS Olympic sailed from Belfast to Southampton to begin her maiden voyage. She first however stopped in Liverpool for a day to honor the White Star Line’s home port. In 1907 White Star had moved its main route to Southampton and Olympic as their most prestigious ship would be on the Southampton-Cherbourg-Queenstown-NYC route, but Liverpool was still considered the line’s historic home city and as such the Olympic’s was officially registered in Liverpool and that was the city listed on her stern(White Star’s move follows the American line a few years previously and the German lines that were already stopping at Southampton. Cunard would follow after WW1. Southampton offered many benefits over Liverpool, a famous “double tide” that made docking permissible at almost all times and easier access to London for passengers as well closer access to ports on the continent for ships to call at). When stopped at Liverpool(as well as Southampton later) the ship was opened to the public for viewing and as you can see the lines were quite long. Thousands of people in both cities turned out to see get a chance to tour the Olympic.

Also, just because Southampton became the main base of operations does not mean Liverpool was just forgotten about. The Adriatic for example which was White Star’s largest and most luxurious ship before the Olympic entered service was transferred to Liverpool. In fact here are the Liverpool-NYC and Liverpool-Boston schedule from 1912
