Titanic II Will Set Sail in ’22 Along Same Route as The Original, Wanna Buy a Ticket?
So, I'm just gonna say it. Right off the bat this doesn't sound too promising. According to Global News, come 2022 (the year, if the number confused you) an exact replica of the Titanic will set sail along the exact same route as the original back in 1912 -- remember the Leonardo Dicaprio movie? That one sunk.
“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,” Palmer said in a statement. “Titanic II is a unique project that will generate unprecedented international exposure and public interest.”
Organizers have tagged the replica with a $500-million price tag. It will be built to the same size dimensions of the Titanic, will carry over 2,400 passengers (one of them will not be me) and 500 crew members. The biggest difference? You guessed it! Titanic II will have enough lifeboats for everyone on board.
