Titanic 2 is being Built.

Toa Smoke Monster

Yes, you read that right.

 

I actually heard about this about a week ago. The Titanic II, which is 'to be built as a modern day replica of the RMS Titanic,' is currently scheduled to launch its first trip in 2018. More info on this can found here

 

My thoughts on this are mixed. On the one hand, I guess it would be interested to go on a ship like this. I'm not a huge fan of staying extended periods of time on ships. But to be on one that is similar to the Titanic, give or take some modern updates, would be cool. On the other hand, being on a ship having 'Titanic' as its name would probably give me a constant fear that it would meet the same fate as the original in someway. I know that's kind of silly, but knowing me, that thought would be in the back of my mind to some extent through the whole trip.

 

What do you all think of this? Would you take a cruise on this ship? Why or why not?

I heard about this a few years ago and forgot about it. Wasn't (and I'm still not) sure that they were going to follow through with the project.

 

Well, if it sinks, we are much better prepared to rescue people.

Are you referring to better safety regulations and protocols, or the fact that there would 24/7 news coverage and surveillance, and probably a small rescue fleet standing by? :P

I saw this story on the news and they specifically mentioned there where more life rafts. I found that a bit more amusing then I should have.

They should have some musicians onboard and at some random point they should start playing that mournful song from the movie to freak everyone out.

You know, I would want to be on the ship, just to see something like this play out. :P

While it would be interesting to be on a ship like this, I am afraid i would have the same dose of paranoia as you would. I'm already a paranoid person so being on the Titanic II wouldn't help.

While I totally get the paranoia some may have, I would assume that everyone involved will make sure that the ship is 127% safe. If there was a repeat of last time, oh boy.

"Listen Titanic I'm happy for you and I'm a let you finish, but the Lusitania had the best sinking of all time!  Of all time!"
