SYDNEY – An Australian Billionaire is busy reconstructing an exact copy of the original Titanic cruise ship that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on 15 April 1912 after colliding with an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton, UK to New York City, US.

The maiden voyage for the Titanic II is scheduled for 2016 and like the original ship, will sail from Southampton UK to New York US.
Clive Palmer announced his plans for the Titanic II this morning during a press conference in New York.
Palmer said, the Titanic II will resemble the original Titanic as much as possible. Quarters for the passengers will be duplicated exactly as they were in 1912.
The new cruise ship will have modern amenities however such as internet and air conditioning but no TVs. The class division that was in effect on the old Titanic will also be in effect on the Titanic II, meaning there will be a distinct segregation of 1st, 2nd and 3rd class travelers.
Palmer says he’ll provided the needed costumes from the 1912 era for passengers to wear “giving them the impression they are directly in the movie.”
Palmer didn’t want to reveal how much the tickets per class will sell for but said there is room for about 2,600 passengers and 900 crew personnel on board the new Titanic.
He emphasized that the Titanic II will be equipped with life rafts.
