Titanic II to Set Sail in 2023 Retracing the Original Route

Titanic II is on the way, but it’s not a movie. A replica ship is being made in China and aims to give passengers a luxury traveling experience with a historical flavor.

Since its spectacular sinking after hitting an iceberg in 1912, the Titanic has become a morbid but intriguing aspect of popular culture.

Movies, memorabilia and even a musical have emerged from the tragedy. But this is arguably the ultimate tribute.

Since its spectacular sinking after hitting an iceberg in 1912, the Titanic has become a morbid but intriguing aspect of popular culture.
Movies, memorabilia and even a musical have emerged from the tragedy. But this is arguably the ultimate tribute.

The recreation is the brainchild of billionaire Clive Palmer. As quoted on the BBC News website, he said “For over a century Titanic’s legend has been powered by mystery, intrigue and respect for all she stood for… Millions have dreamt of sailing on her, seeing her in port and experiencing her unique majesty. Titanic II will be the ship where those dreams come true.”

Blue Star Line in Brisbane are undertaking the work, which hasn’t been without its setbacks.

Titanic I faced a dangerous iceberg, whereas Palmer’s project was tied up in a legal battle. First announced in 2012, the operation ground to a halt in 2015 after what are described as “disputed royalties from a Chinese conglomerate.”

With that matter resolved, Titanic II is expected to set off from Dubai in 2022, taking a 2 week maiden voyage to Southampton.

This iceberg was pictured in the morning of 15 April 1912 and is thought to be the one that the Titanic had struck.

After that it will sail to New York, mirroring the original journey. It was on this leg, out in the North Atlantic Ocean, that the ship had its fateful en counter.
