100 years ago, the ship deemed "unsikable," The Titanic, actually sunk. Now reports are spilling that a replica of the exact same ship will be ready to sail in 2022.
Titanic II plans to take on 2,400 passengers and 900 crew members to match almost exactly the amount of people aboard the original ship. It's also going to include the same cabin layout as its predecessor. For those feeling a bit superstitious or anxious about any possible icebergs, this Titanic will include enough lifeboats and life-jackets for everyone — and obviously feature much more advanced safety technology.
Before tracing the Titanic’s voyage across the icy North Atlantic, the Titanic II will offer a two-week trip from Dubai to Southampton, England. Then it will head from England to New York, before going on to host worldwide cruises.
“The ship will follow the original journey, carrying passengers from Southampton to New York, but she will also circumnavigate the globe, inspiring and enchanting people while attracting unrivaled attention, intrigue, and mystery in every port she visits,” the Blue Star Line’s chairman Clive Palmer said.
It’s unclear how much tickets will go for, but it’s likely there will be varying price ranges for those with new or old money like Rose, as well as those staying in the underbelly of the ship like Jack.
