It was 104 years ago when the first Titanic left port and made its fateful voyage down into the depths of the chilly North Atlantic. It’s a history, we’re sure, that you’re no doubt familiar with. James Cameron, after all, turned it into one of the most successful movies of all time.
For a period, people thought that Cameron’s movie was the closest they’d ever get to experiencing the luxury of that ill-fated ocean liner. Those people didn’t count on the deep pockets of an Australian billionaire named Clive Palmer. This man, for whatever reason, has decided to build a real-life replica of the original Titanic, sinking over $428 million so far into the venture. When completed, it will be a part of Blue Star Cruises, and like the original first, second and third class tickets will be available for purchase…
So come on a tour of the forthcoming sequel to the Titanic, Titanic II, and see for yourself what this replica is going to look like. And, if you like what you see, then get ready for its launch, because you could be sailing aboard her in just a few short years.
1. The Original
Large for her time, the original Titanic is relatively modest by today’s standards. The Titanic II will be the exact same size.
2. Present Day
As you can see by this computer rendering, the new Titanic will look every bit the part of the old one.
3. BEFORE: The Grand Staircase
One of the most recognizable features of the original ship was the grand staircase, beautiful and ornate.
4. AFTER: The Grand Staircase
The grand staircase aboard the Titanic II will look every bit the part; note the incredible attention to detail that’s been paid.
