Clive Palmer unveiling plans for the Titanic II
An Australian billionaire is building an exact replica of the Titanic, which infamously sank after hitting an iceberg 101 years ago. Clive Palmer said the Titanic II will make its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York, just like its namesake.
Mr Palmer has commissioned the CSC Jinling Shipyard Company in Nanjing, China, to work on the three year project to build the cruise ship. The ship will have 840 cabins and will be equipped with modern additions such as air-conditioning. There will also be Turkish baths, a swimming pool and gymnasiums based on those found on the original Titanic, while guests will have the opportunity to dress in period clothes. Anyone going on a cruise should consider taking out
cruise travel insurance to cover themselves and their family in case of accidents, illness or crime.
A spokesman for CSC Jinling Shipyard Company, Li Wenbao said: "The liner will be equipped with advanced technologies including the latest life-saving and communications systems, to meet the requirements of modern navigation." Mr Palmer made his money in mining and already has four giant bulk mineral carriers on order from the shipyard.
