Titanic II to Set Sail From Europe to New York on Same Route as Doomed 1912 Voyage
The replica RMS Titanic, which boasts the same cabin layout as the original, promises modern safety features, including the appropriate number of life jackets and rafts.
Twenty-two hundred souls will once again set sail aboard the Titanic.
A replica passenger ship, dubbed the Titanic II, will carry the same amount of passengers and crew members as the ill-fated 1912 voyage. It will also be built with the same cabin layout as the previous version of the ship.
History buffs and romantic film lovers alike will be happy to know the Titanic II, built by British shipping company Blue Star Line, promises improvements over the original, most notably the regulation amount of life boats and life jackets and a new-and-improved safety mechanism that features modern navigation features, according to MSN.
The Titanic II will embark on its maiden voyage in 2022 from Dubai to Southampton before taking the Great Britain-to-New York course popularized by James Cameron's 1997 film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.
“She will also circumnavigate the globe, inspiring and enchanting people while attracting unrivaled attention, intrigue and mystery in every port she visits," Blue Star Line chairman Clive Palmer said in a statement.
The company originally announced the replica Titanic in 2012 but suspended the $500 million project due to budget issues. The company declared this week that work on the Titanic II is once again underway.
