Titanic II To Retrace The Route of The Original Ship in 2022 [VIDEO]
We've all read about Titanic in history books or watched Jack go down with the ship in the 1997 blockbuster so we're all familiar with the story and how it ends.
So knowing how it ended, would you get on board a ship of the same name and travel the exact same route the original ship took before it sank on April 15, 1912? Not only the same name but the same interiors and cabin layout as the original Titanic.
According to Fox17, A replica of the Titanic will set sail in 2022, retracing the original ship’s planned route from Dubai to Southampton, England and then to New York.
I can't think of a cooler way to relive or retrace history. They even plan on carrying the same amount of passengers (2400) and crew (900). I would jump on this in an instant if the opportunity was in front of me. I would have to imagine it's going to be a pricey trip though so maybe I could win a couple tickets in a poker game and travel as a third-class passenger.
Cruise Fever reports the ship would be built as close of a replica to the original Titanic as possible, with the addition of modern safety features. Those safety features include the ship being built over 12 feet wider, the hull will be welded instead of riveted, and will have modern digital navigation, satellite, and radar systems. So I think it's going to be a much safer voyage than the original 1912 trip.
Titanic II is currently under construction and tickets are not available yet. When they do become available passengers will be able to buy first, second, and third class tickets just like the original.
