Get your life-jackets ready.
Hold on tight.
And whatever you do, make sure you make room for at least two more people if you find yourself floating on a wooden door (RIP Jack).
Nearly 110 years after the original Titanic suffered its infamous demise, the Titanic II will look to conquer the high seas in 2022.
Reports indicate the ‘Titanic II’ will be an exact replica of the original Titanic, this time with enough life-jackets, too; modern navigation and radar technology will accompany the vessel.
Titanic II will deploy from Dubai to England, then from England to the United States, following an identical route from the 1912 voyage. After those conclude, it will be going on general cruises around the world. Ticket prices are unknown at this time, but first-class, second-class, and third-class tickets are reported to be available, just like the original.
Clive Palmer, an Australian businessmen and former politician, first announced this business venture in 2013. While a cloud of doubt shrouded this project for years, his cruise ship company, Blue Star Line, announced the construction of the ship would re-commence in September 2018.
On Monday, he announced Blue Star Line would establish a European headquarters early next year, most likely in Paris, to get the Titanic II onto the high seas.
“Millions have dreamt of sailing on her, seeing her in port and experiencing her unique majesty,” Palmer said. “Titanic ll will be the ship where those dreams come true.”
He continued, “Blue Star Line will create an authentic Titanic experience, providing passengers with a ship that has the same interiors and cabin layout as the original vessel, while integrating modern safety procedures, navigation methods and 21st century technology to produce the highest level of luxurious comfort.”
While the England to New York run is hoping to be the main cash grab during the summer months, Palmer said that she would also undertake World Cruises during the rest of the year.
