This is almost certainly not correct; look at https://www.encyclopedia-titanica.org/c ... 852/page-3

Had Titanic docked in New York without incident, would Captain Smith have served as Captain on the return voyage or would he have just deadheaded back as a passenger?
Commanders were not changed mid-trip except in case of death, illness or injury.
