Clive Palmer is an Australian businessman, who is close to making his dream come true: put the Titanic II to work. It was announced that the ship would be ready in 2016, but the developer company delayed the release date to 2018. While the ship had been designed to look exactly like the original Titanic, it seems that there is going to be further delay, since Palmer hasn’t managed to raise the funds that he needs to finish the boat. However, it is worth taking a look at how the boat is set to look if it ever gets completed.
The grand staircase that was reserved only for first-class passengers.
The Cafe Parisien was also reserved for first-class passengers.
The Smoking Room was like a men’s club, were men went to relax.
The pool in the original ship was filled with salt water after it had set sail.
The first class stateroom.
The first class dining salon that spanned the entire width of the ship.
The Turkish bath that resembles a sauna.
The third class dining room, where the menu changed on a daily basis.
Titanic II will approximately cost $500 million and it will have modern evacuation procedures, satellite controls, digital navigation and radar systems and all those things you’d expect on a 21st century ship. Unfortunately, there is no certain release date and ticket prices are not available yet.
