An Australian businessman Clive Palmer has undertaken a $500 million project building a replica of the ill-fated 1912 Titanic cruise ship.
The story of the Titanic is one that has intrigued many for years and for those who are most entranced, there may soon be a way to experience the wonder of one of the most luxurious cruise liners in the world.
By 2022, a new ship modeled after the Titanic could set sail for 2,400 passengers, thanks to Australian businessman Clive Palmer, who shelled out $500 million for the project.
The Titanic II, though outfitted with 21st-century navigation and safety technology, will be a close replica of the original vessel.
The ship would sail along the same route as its sunken predecessor, from Southampton, England, to New York, which is about an 8-hour trip if you travel by plane.
