Most Famous Ship

A week-or-so ago, I was waiting around the Cutty Sark, when I noticed a sign. It claimed that the Cutty Sark is the world's most famous ship.

Surely, that's not true. In America, the Niña, the Pinta, the Santa Maria, the Mayflower, and the Titanic are all far more famous than the Cutty Sark. I don't know why the Cutty Sark would be quite so famous anywhere outside the UK (and perhaps, given her history, Australia).

But it does raise the question: What is the world's most famous ship?

(Not fleet. Not sailor. Not navigator. Ship. And what is the most famous ship in Russia? India? China? etc.)
