I think the possibility of the moon causing an unusual high tide, because of its closeness to the earth, might increase knowledge of other things, besides the sinking of the Titanic.  The decisions of the captain have nothing to do with the scientific subject of the relationship between moon, high tides and ice bergs.  Mentioning the Titanic is just presenting the new information in away that might get more people's attention.

I'm glad that people are beginning to question if the Titanic actually hit an iceberg.
When you see the pics of what was in the vicinity at daybreak, it would appear as if they may have gone right into pack ice. A photo was taken of an iceberg that had a red streak along it's waterline so apparently the current was not moving swift enough to carry all this ice in the four hours it took the Carpathia to reach the scene. While the Titanic survivors have said they saw the Califorian during the sinking they were unable to see all the ice that had the ship blocked. The Californian's wireless was shut off but so were it's engines. Could the ship they said they saw sail off have been a reflection of some sort. None of this has ever made sense to me. The time frame just doesn't fit. The Carpathia saw ice all the way in and avoided it. The Califorian saw ice and stopped. The Titanic for some reason was the only ship unable to see what at daybreak showed to not be a single iceberg, but an entire ice field.

NOOOO!!! Blame the sun not the moon! The sun is more annoying!
With child time over, time to state my opinion.  The Titanic may have crashed, not how everyone would think, but I dont think that the moon did it or there would be more ship crashes. And no I'm not saying that 'cause I like the moon.

Of course the moon didn't do it. The moon wasen't driving the boat, was it?  :huh:

As it can be read on the NASA's website, the cause is really about the ship going full speed in a region full of icebergs and the failure of slowing down in time, despite all the warning messages they received beforehand. So no, the moon didn't do it. Humans did it.

As far as the moon is concerned, they say it may explain how an unusually large number of icebergs got into the path of the Titanic. Seems that during that period of time (most precisely in January 1912) the moon and sun may have lined up, both enhancing their gravitational attractions on the earth resulting in what they call a "spring tide". It could have moved a large quantity of icebergs from Greenland that eventually ended up in the Titanic's path in April.

So since the sun might have been also involved in that "spring tide" might as well blame it too. I wouldn't mind. My favorite star is VY Canis Majoris anyways.

And no, I'm not saying that 'cause I hate the moon. I do prefer Io and Europa but that's my little secret. :P

So you have these two faster-than-light neutrinos walking into a bar...
