The project “the Titanic II” will cost nearly $ 500 million financed by an Australian billionaire Clive Palmer. According to him, on the liner can accommodate up to 2.4 million passengers and 900 crew members, and the Board will be provided the same as the “original version” of the ship, dining rooms, cabins, a ballroom with a Grand staircase and even a copy of the engine.

The new “Titanic” plan to equip with modern security systems and navigation technologies of the XXI century.

His first flight he will perform from a shipyard in China’s Jiangsu province to Singapore, and from there will travel to Dubai, and the capital of the Emirates will start a two-week cruise in Southampton. Then the ship will run between Southampton and new York in the summer, and in winter to serve other routes.
