Titanic Replica Is Officially Happening & Here Is Everything We Know!

Want to feel like the king of the world? The Titanic is getting a sequel--not the movie, the ship! 

USA Today reports that a near-exact replica of the famous vessel, dubbed Titanic II, is scheduled to embark on its maiden voyage in 2022. 

After a two-week journey from Dubai to Southampton, England, the Titanic II will retrace the original Titanic's ill-fated, one-and-only trip from England to New York. 

While Titanic II will carry the same number of passengers (2,400) and crew (900) as its predecessor, there will of course be one major difference: Titanic II will include all necessary safety features and lifesaving equipment. 

The Titanic II would then offer an array of worldwide cruise itineraries. 

The ship is expected to cost about $500 million. A financial dispute held up the project for several years; the boat was originally scheduled to debut in 2018.
