DUBAI – A replica of the Titanic is set to embark on its maiden voyage in 2022.
Construction of the “Titanic Two” was put on hold for a few years because of a financial dispute.
Now, USA Today is reporting that the $500 million project is back on track.
The ship will reportedly feature the same cabin layout as the original vessel.
The “Titanic Two” will sail from Dubai and then trace the original route from Southampton, England to New York. The new ship will also carry 2,400 passengers and 900 crew, nearly the same as the original ship.
The “Titanic Two” will also be equipped with modern navigation and plenty of lifeboats.
