A Replica Of The Titanic Is Being Built And Will Set Sail In 2022

Blue Star Line announced that a replica of the Titanic, Titanic II, will set sail on the same route in 2022.

“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, Blue Star Line’s chairman said.

The interior decor will be will be the same as the original. But, the actual body of the ship will be welded rather than riveted. And they will even serve a menu inspired by the one from 1912.

Of course, some people are a little worried because of the history of the original Titanic.

But, the Blue Star Line assures interested parties that the new ship has better safety procedures. And in 2018 it has the benefit of technology advancements. Also, nod to the name Blue Star Line as the original ship was under the White Star Line.

According to TODAY, the original ship only had 20 life boats which could only fit about half of those on board. The new model will have enough life boats for all.

They also did a poll and nearly 2/3 of people said they would not board the ship.
