An Australian billionaire recently announced his plans to build a replica of the Titanic and make its voyage from England to New York. Businessman Clive Palmer commented that the life-sized copy of the White Star Line’s ship would be equipped with the latest safety and navigation systems – assuring everyone that what happened to the Titanic, won’t be happening to the Titanic II.

The Titanic II would be “every bit as luxurious as the original.” The ship will retain the same dimensions as its predecessor, featuring nine decks, 840 rooms, and even the four smoke stacks (but they will be purely decorative).

Palmer described the Titanic II as:

The ultimate in comfort and luxury with on-board gymnasiums and swimming pools, libraries, high-class restaurants and luxury cabins. It is going to be designed so it won’t sink. It will be designed as a modern ship with all the technology to ensure that doesn’t happen.
