Titanic II is Set to Sail Again

Ever wanted to sail the oceans aboard the Titanic like Jack and Rose? Well your wish may be coming true, courtesy of plans to replicate the 20th Century ship. The UK's Guardian reports Australian mining billionaire Clive Palmer is financing the building of the new ship and wants it to sail the Atlantic to New York harbor as an homage to those who built the original ship. 

“We will complete the journey. We will sail into New York on the ship they designed," Palmer said during an event at the Intrepid in New York City.

The new ship will replicate everything the original one had, including three separate class section, segregating the low and high class. We're assured the new Titanic will take extra safety precautions to avoid the disastrous sinking of the Titanic that killed 1,502 people a century ago. There is even a helicopter pad aboard!

If that wasn't assuring enough that this plan will indeed go through, apparently already 40,000 people have applied to ride aboard Titanic II on its maiden voyage. And yes, there will be an option to dress in Edwardian costumes on board to complete your Titanic experience. But have no worries, there will be modern amenities like high speed internet and air conditioning for your convenience. So you'll be able to Instagram your Titanic meals unlike those who made the 1912 maiden voyage. 

No word on whether Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet will be aboard in 2016, but there is always hope someone like Billy Zane will party with high society across the Atlantic.
