The Titanic Plans to Set Sail Again in 2022

The Titanic Plans to Set Sail Again in 2022

Now, fresh details revealed that the project for the modern replica of the Titanic ship costs $500 million and the cabin layout is similar to the original passenger liner used in the 1997 film.

It will welcome 2,400 passengers and 900 crew members, which is nearly the exact same number on board the boat that sank in 1912. There will be plenty of those!

There is no word yet whether a "Jack Dawson" or a "Rose DeWitt Bukater" will be among the upcoming ship's initial guests.

USA Today reports Blue Star Line Chairman Clive Palmer has finalised the $700 million dollar project and Titanic II is set to make its two-week maiden voyage in 2022. It will also feature advanced technology for safety and navigation, which further includes enough supply of lifeboats.

Deemed "practically unsinkable", when it debuted as the world's largest passenger ship at the time, the original Titanic sank in the morning hours of April 15, 1912 after striking an iceberg in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

Blue Star Line wanted to build the ship in 2015, but a financial dispute delayed construction, according to a press release.

The Titanic II has been in the works since 2012, when the plan was first announced by Australian business tycoon Clive Palmer. The ticket system will also be like the original ship with first, second and third-class bookings. He said the plan is for ship to sail from Dubai to Southampton, where it will begin its Southampton-New York runs.

The ship, which will feature the same cabin layout as the original, will sail from Dubai to Southampton, England and then on to NY, tracing the North Atlantic route of its doomed namesake, which sunk on April 12, 1912, less than three hours after sideswiping an iceberg.
