Now this is an interesting news. Remember the original Titanic ship? The one that sank after hitting an iceberg in 1912? A replica tagged Titanic II has been made and is set to embark on same journey and same route come 2022. That's quite interesting. Read the new below.

Titanic II Will Set Sail In 2022 Following The Same Route As The Original

A replica of the infamous passenger ship — dubbed the Titanic II — is set to make its first voyage in 2022. It will welcome 2,400 passengers and 900 crew members, USA Today reported, almost the exact same number of each on board the boat that sunk in 1912.

This time around, however, the ship will include an appropriate number of life boats, life-jackets and plenty of modern safety features.

The Titanic II will first take a two-week trip from Dubai to Southampton, England, according MSN. The ship will then trace the original Titanic’s planned route from England to New York across the icy North Atlantic. After which it plans to offer worldwide cruises.

The 1912 voyage, which was immortalized in the 1997 blockbuster Titanic, starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, was tragically cut short when the steam ship hit an iceberg. Over 1,500 people lost their lives, more than two-thirds of those on board.

In 2015, the Blue Star Line halted work on the Titanic II because of financial disagreements, derailing plans for the ship to be ready in 2016, according to the BBC. The company announced in September that it was continuing efforts to finish the Titanic II.The ship will cost $500 million to recreate, according to Bloomberg.

“The ship will follow the original journey, carrying passengers from Southampton to New York, but she will also circumnavigate the globe, inspiring and enchanting people while attracting unrivaled attention, intrigue and mystery in every port she visits,” the Blue Star Line’s chairman Clive Palmer said, according to MSN.
