Get your tickets now for the 2016 voyage of the Titanic II

04.30.2012by:

No, James Cameron is not making a sequel to TITANIC. This idea is even worse. Someone is building an actual replica of the HMS Titanic and it will be setting sail in 2016.

The Titanic II is currently on track to recreate the original ship's ill-fated route from England to New York in four years. Australian billionaire Clive Palmer, who has previously failed at recreating the infamous cruise ship, announced today that the new Titanic will be a faithful and accurate recreation of the original, but updated with high tech features.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the finished Titanic II, which will carry 1,680 passengers, will be small by today’s cruising standards when most ships carry more than 2,000 passengers. To ensure the meticulous design, a historical research team is working with Palmer’s Blue Star Line Pty. Ltd. As such, there will be four decorative smoke stacks, though the ship itself will run on diesel. There will also be updates to the original Titanic‘s construction that will increase its sturdiness, maximize fuel efficiency, and allow the vessel to maneuver more precisely. Like, say, around icebergs (just an example). Palmer did not disclose the cost of the project.

While many would consider Titanic II to be a horrible idea, I give you TITANIC II.

A great idea, as long as we can fill the maiden voyage with Kardashians, Justin Bieber, the cast of Jersey Shore, everyone from the Disney Channel, everyone from Fox News, Zooey Deschanel, Republicans, Mark Millar, Kony, Olivia Munn, Your Mom, Rebecca Black and Wall Street bankers, then everything will be just fine!

Well its mainly just creating the look of the ship, like the grand staircase and all that. That's actually not a bad idea, its a smart idea, it'll make tons of $$$.

Dang...

I didn't know they actually went through with it. I remember hearing about his back when the movie first came out on VHS... I figured by now it was just a pipe dream they had... I think back then it was intended to launch for the 100 hundred anniversary but I guess they missed their mark by a few years :P

Is this what rich people do? Build planes that fly into space and construct working replicas of sunken ships and sail people across a treacherous route just because they can? F**k man, I wish I was rich.

so around the 100th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks should we expect a fucking commercial plane ride taking the same route? Jesus christ.

if it's not the same size as the original then what's the point! I know one thing. If anyone says "not even God could sink this ship", then I'm not going anywhere near it!

I think that clip sets the record for the most number of times someone starts a sentence with "Yeah well..." in a single scene.

This is awesome! Most of the cause of the Titanic sinking in the first place was due to a captain and owner that were in a hurry to make speed records, the watch crew having lost the binoculars, and rivets that were made out of iron instead of steel. This is a great opportunity for us to enjoy early 20th century grandeur and commemorate the regal cruise ship and passengers who were lost to the sea. I live near Lake Erie U.S and have been thinking that some billionaire should have made a replica
