Have you ever wondered what it was like to travel on Titanic? Well, soon you’ll be able to take a trip on the greatest liner of all time, without risking your life. For over a century, the history of the Titanic has fascinated people all over the planet. Lucky for us, businessman Clive Palmer, one of the richest men in Australia, is a fan himself. In 2012, he announced his project to build a replica of the legendary ship. That was exactly 100 years after the real Titanic went down in the North Atlantic.
Palmer wanted to recreate the whole experience so much that he named his cruise company Blue Star Line. It’s a nod to The White Star Line, which owned the original Titanic. This man forked over $500 million to make his dream come true. And 7 years later, the construction’s finally coming to an end.

– Designers and historians made sure that the interiors were as close to the original liner as possible.
– Just imagine: A library, a gymnasium, and even Turkish baths were on board this glorious ship over 100 years ago!
– Like its predecessor, it’ll feature a squash court and a gym, and be furnished with the newest fitness equipment, at least by the century-old standards.
– Animals enjoyed being well taken care of aboard too, especially 12 pooches who had their own kennel.
– One of the most lavish spaces of theTitanic was the lounge. The walls in there were trimmed with mother of pearl and mahogany wood.
– And let’s not forget the extravagant dining room of the first class. It was 92 feet wide and 114 feet long.
– The ship will serve 3 categories of passengers, so there will be 3 types of cabins accordingly. The first-class will enjoy more spacious suites with large canopy beds, tables and even their own fireplaces for decoration.
– The second-class ones will be less luxurious but quite cozy. They’ll have bunk beds or sofas embedded right in the walls.
– And the third-class cabins will also be just like a century ago. They were the smallest and the most humble ones, and often had 4 cots in a room; but that was still more than decent for that time.
– Titanic II will accommodate around 2,400 passengers and 900 crew members as well, but the number of rafts and life jackets will be increased significantly.
– The new Titanic will have a stronger, welded hull, rather than a riveted one. Apparently, this part of the boat was damaged when it crashed into the iceberg, allowing water to gush in.
– Titanic II will have an extra deck, raising the total number to 10 rather than 9, as it was in 1912.
– To allow the passengers to experience the bygone era to the max, the crew will give out big dresses and tuxedos. They even thought about having no internet or TV onboard.
– Its maiden voyage is scheduled for 2022. The ship will travel from Dubai to the English city of Southampton, and then to New York, following the route of its legendary ancestor.
