The Titanic II Is Setting Sail In 2022 On The Same Route As The Original Ship

Titanic fans get ready because a replica of the luxury cruise ship is going to embark on the same journey as the original did back in 1912.

You can live out the Jack and Rose dream on the Titanic II when it sets sail in 2022 – minus the iceberg and with more than enough lifeboats and lifejackets for everyone on board.

The ship will have a whopping 2,400 passengers and 900 crew on board and is costing a reported $500million to build.

The inside of the ship will be the exact same as the original, including the famous grand staircase and it will also have first, second and third class tickets just like the first one.

The maiden voyage will actually be a two-week trip from Dubai to Southampton, followed by a repeat of the Titanic’s original journey from Southampton to New York.

The Blue Star Line had originally hoped to have the replica ship ready to sail in 2016 but building work was halted due to ‘financial disagreements’.

The man behind the project, Australian businessman and politician Clive Palmer, said in a statement, “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.”

No word yet on when tickets will go on sale or how much they'll set you back, but in the meantime why not check out our review of Belfast's Titanic Hotel?
