If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. That must be the motto of Australian billionaire Clive Palmer. He’s all set to sign the final deal with Jinling Shipyard in Nanjing to begin construction of a new Titanic.
Titanic II will very much resemble the original Titanic, with all similar luxurious amenities. But, according to the Jinling shipyard, Titanic II will be equipped with advanced life-saving and communications systems.
Titanic II will set sail in 2016. Its first voyage is planned from South Hampton in England to New York. It is the same voyage as the original Titanic that met with disaster after striking an iceberg in the Atlantic, killing nearly 1500 people.
And it seems people can’t wait. They've already started inquiring into tickets for maiden first voyage. Some are willing to pay up to a million dollars to sail on it.
