- Awesome Music: Written by John Barry, the score is one of the movie's highlights and considered some of Barry's best work.
- Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: The Titanic finally arriving in New York, 68 years late, but finally at her destination. The entire city has come out to see the magnificent vessel.
- One-Scene Wonder: With regards to the film, the scene where the Titanic is raised is frequently cited to be the only real reason to watch the movie. Indeed, you get to see it twice (it's repeated in slow motion behind the end credits).
YMMV / Raise the Titanic!
