    Titanic II is the first of four luxury cruise ships Mr Palmer has commissioned CSC Jinling Shipyard to build.
    The construction is expected to begin next year but the cost has not yet been revealed.

    It is not the mining magnate’s first venture into tourism – he already owns a luxury holiday resort on the Sunshine Coast.

    Mr Palmer called the project ‘a tribute to the spirit of the men and women who worked on the original Titanic.’

    More than 1,500 people died in the sinking of the Titanic, which at the time was the world's largest and most luxurious ocean liner.

    The vessel struck an iceberg on its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York on April 14 1912 and sunk less than three hours later.

    Pretty cool if they nail it off properly. With all the awesome early 20'th century halls and details, would be heaven for eccentrics.

    I know that some people will probably - or most likely - be entirely against this. They'll claim that it's a disrespect for those who died on the original Titanic, the original ships memory, ect. ect. But honestly, although I would normally say that they should leave things like this alone, I feel that this is more of an honor than anything else. People want to know more about titanic, they want to be able to walk across the deck or explore the inside of the elegant ship. Now they can actually do that with this replica. I think my only concern is how much it'll be to actually travel on this ship... I expect that it'll be well around $1,000 a ticket, depending on destination and so on.

    I'm very much looking forward to this event.​

    It's really cool that someone's actually doing this. Hopefully they don't put in all the things that were wrong with the original Titanic (ex: lifeboats) and I hope they add air conditioning or something. The original probably didn't have AC and the lower decks most have gotten insanely hot. Air craft carriers without AC get really hot.

    Exactly. I wouldn't even go on the ship if they had some exclusive celebrities doing concerts on it or something. It's just not worth it.

    @cpvrcpvr Yep. o-o

    My fiance's views were that it's disrespectful and horrible. He feels like it'll bring back bad memories for people who had experience with the first Titanic, etc.

    It is quite disrespectful, but since its being developed by a billionaire, I can see why he's doing it. Sure, it's going to cost him a lot - but imagine how many people are going to buy tickets, just because its the new Titanic. It's retarded, but hey.

    So how does he feel about documentaries or movies? o_O
    There's barely a difference... why not have a monumental object (or a replicated ship) help hold memory to those who faced the tragic events of Titanic? Kicking it in the dust or simply choosing to keep it in our past is a little more disrespectful, in my opinion. This wont be Titanic... it'll be a remembrance of the original ships glory and beauty. Nothing more, nothing less.

    I think this billionaire is actually doing some good with his money. At least, it's better than giving the world another fast food chain, or another facebook, or whatever. He's trying to bring history back into our lives in a way that we can touch and see it. I'm personally more offended that people are taking objects from Titanic and scattering them all over the world in museums.

    @JoyJoy I don't really have any feelings about it other than I feel like it'd be cursed or haunted or something. Dx
