Fans of Rose and Jack will have an opportunity to experience their own Titanic journey in 2022.
A replica of the RMS Titanic was first announced in 2012 but was suspended due to financial constraints. Now that the financial issues have been resolved, the owners Blue Star Line announced that work on the luxury Titanic II has continued.
More importantly, the ship will set sail on a two-week maiden voyage in 2022 from Dubai to Southampton.
The vessel will then follow the historic route of the original Titanic between England and the U.S. in the summer, and then undertake world cruises through the end of the first year.
Just as the original Titanic, Titanic II will be a luxurious ship but will include 21st-century technology, like the latest navigation and safety systems to prevent the fateful sinking that occurred the first time around.
It will cost about $500 million and will accommodate 2,400 passengers and 900 crew members.
Titanic II will look and feel like the original Titanic, including having the same cabin layout.

Blue Star Line’s chairman, Clive Palmer said, “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.”
