A replica of the ship, The Titanic II, is said to set sail in 2022 following the same exact trail that the original ship had attempted prior: Southampton, England to New York. Announced in 2012 in honor of the ship’s 100-year anniversary, the ship was supposed to leave the port the same date as the original Titanic, however a reported financial dispute had taken place and ultimately pushed back the voyage’s date.
“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 unrivaled attention, intrigue and mystery in every port she visits,” Clive Palmer, chairman of Blue Star Line wrote in a statement, “Blue Star Line will create an authentic Titanic experience, providing passengers with a ship that has the same interiors and cabin layout as the original vessel, while integrating modern safety procedures, navigation methods and 21st century technology to produce the highest level of luxurious comfort,’’ Palmer said.
It’s predecessor had set sail on April 10, 1912 carrying 2,200 passengers from the English port. The RMS Titanic was famously hailed as the largest ship afloat and had attracted many rich people around the world. However, 4 days into the journey the ship had sank, taking more than 1,500 lives with it.
