In case you haven’t heard, they’re making a Titanic II. Not a sequel to the James Cameron movie, but a sequel to the actual ship. The project was announced last April by Australian tycoon Clive Palmer, as the flagship of Blue Star Line, his cruise company. The plan is for it to launch in 2016.
The ship’s blueprint has now been unveiled, along with artists’ renderings of what the interior will look like. The Daily Mail shares this video:
Noted Titanic experts Steve Hall and Daniel Klistorner were announced as design consultants in October.
The ship will begin a six-day voyage in late 2016, if everything goes according to plan. It is supposed to follow a similar route to that of the original ship. Construction will begin this year.
A dinner is being held in London on March 2nd, and it will display items salvaged from the original Titanic.
