Titanic II To Set Sail In 2016
An Australian billionaire by the name of Clive Palmer, announced he has signed a deal with a chinese company, CSC Jinling Shipyard, to build the Titanic II. He said it’s maiden voyage in late 2016 will be from England to New York. Clive said ” It will be every bit as luxurious as the original Titanic, but will have state of the art 21st century technology and the latest navigation and safety systems.” The project will be a tribute to the spirit of the men and women who worked on the original Titanic. At the time, the original Titanic was the worlds largest and most luxurious ocean liner. I think with all the updates, Titanic II would be safe to travel, but I would still feel an eeriness on board after what happened to the first ship. More than 1,500 people died after Titanic hit an iceberg in the North Atlantic on its first voyage. What do you think?
