A replica of the famous ship will depart from Dubai and will make the route from Southampton-New York that already made the transatlantic in 1912. The project will cost 435 million euros
It’s been 106 years since the mighty Titanic left the port of Southampton for New York, on a trip he would never complete. The dawn of April 15, 1912, north of a cold Atlantic Ocean, more than 1,500 people died after the shock of what was then considered the world’s largest and most luxurious transatlantic against an iceberg. Only 700 survived, between passengers and crew. The history of the Unsinkable was known throughout the twentieth century, but its great boom came in 1997 thanks to director James Cameron, who took it to the screen with an extra point of epic and romance that would make him take away 11 Oscars thanks to her.
Now, that trip will be repeated, but it is expected with a happy ending. The company Blue Star Line (in a tribute to the original that chartered the first ship, the White Star Line) has announced that it plans to build and launch the Titanic II in 2022, according to the news agency Bloomberg. The trip would be the same, although with a previous stage from Dubai. Once established again in Southampton, the ship would make regular trips between England and New York in the summer and cruises around the world for the rest of the season, as explained by Lonely Planet.
It will be necessary 500 million dollars (about 435 million euros) for the project, which aims to turn the ship into an exact replica of the Titanic , only more modern: it will have the classic staircase, a pool and a sauna throughout its nine decks, which will accommodate 2,400 passengers and 900 crew. All of them redistributed in the first, second and third class. Of course, this time the capacity of lifeboats will be almost 3,000 people, instead of just 1,200.
The idea is not new. The Blue Star Line, owned by the Australian billionaire Clive Palmer (with an estimated fortune of 2,600 million euros), already tried to create a similar project in 2012, whose ship would arrive in 2018. However, the lack of financing for the construction and a conflict with the Chinese government, which was building it, forced to cancel it in 2016. Now, the project offices will be in Paris and will start, operate and hire staff as of March 2019.
The company has already launched some first images of the model of the ship and its interiors, as well as the distribution of its decks or the organization of its restaurants, very similar to those of the early twentieth century. Among the specifications show what will be the security and lifeboats, and also the engine room.
“Blue Star Line will create an authentic experience on the Titanic, giving passengers a boat with the same interiors as the original, although integrating 21st century technologies, new navigation methods and more modern safety, to achieve the highest level of comfort” , Palmer assured about the launch of the ship, which he assures will be “a unique project with an unprecedented international exhibition”. Unprecedented, but hopefully something less than what he achieved, sadly, in 1912.
