A massive functional replica of the Titanic will set sail along its original route with thousands of passengers. The massive $500 million vessel, dubbed Titanic II, features the original cabin layout and will cruise along the same route from Southampton, England and then on to New York in 2022. “She will also circumnavigate the globe, inspiring and enchanting people while attracting unrivaled attention, intrigue and mystery in every port she visits,” Blue Line chairman Clive Palmer said.

The ship will carry 2,400 passengers — nearly the same as the original — along with 900 crew members. It will also be equipped with modern navigation and safety technology, including lifeboats. The replica is being built in China rather than the original shipyard in Belfast, Ireland after a financial fight delayed the project.
