Ladies and gentlemen, pack your bags and get on-board as a replica of the Titanic is set to sail in 2022. The ship will welcome 900 crew members and 2400 passengers, almost the same as the sunken Titanic in 1912.
This time it will include sufficient lifeboats and jackets. Here’s what the Blue Star Line’s Chairman Clive Parmer said:
“The ship will follow the original journey, carrying passengers from Southampton to New York, but she will also circumnavigate the globe, inspiring and enchanting people while attracting unrivaled attention, intrigue and mystery in every port she visits.”
