RMS Titanic embarked on its maiden voyage on April 10, 1912 from Southampton in London. It was sailing to New York City when it sank after it hit an iceberg on April 15, 1912. Around 1, 517 people died in the tragic accident
New Delhi: Titanic 2, a replica of the ill-fated RMS Titanic that was being made by Australian mining magnate Clive Palmer, is likely to embark on its maiden trip by 2022.
Palmer, who halted the project three years back due to some financial issue, said that work will start up again.
Here are some details about the new Titanic:
Titanic 2 is expected to retain the same interior and cabin layout as its predecessor.
Also, the shift will be having ballroom and Turkish baths —exactly like the old one.
Even, if reports are to be believed, passengers will be given period costumes to wear.
Not only this, unlike the original ship which had a capacity of 1500 passengers, the new ship will be able to accommodate 2400 passengers and 900 crew members.
Palmer also revealed some details about the new Titanic’s route and the ports that it will visit. “The ship will follow the original journey, carrying passengers from Southampton to New York, but she will also circumnavigate the globe, inspiring and enchanting people while attracting unrivalled attention, intrigue and mystery in every port she visits… Millions have dreamt of sailing on her, seeing her in port and experiencing her unique majesty. Titanic II will be the ship where those dreams come true,” said Palmer, as reported by the Guardian.
However, no details about the ticket prices were available as of yet.
