The Titanic II, which is a functioning replica of its ill-fated predecessor, will make its maiden voyage in 2020.
However, the dubious disaster which befell the original ship in the icy North Atlantic Ocean has cast an ominous omen over the Titanic II.
The new luxury liner was announced in 2012 to honor the ship's 100-year anniversary, but the inaugural voyage was ultimately postponed due to a reported financial dispute between Blue Star Line's parent company, Mineralogy, and the Chinese government.
Giving a brief account of the ship, Blue Star Line states that the nine-decked ship will be home to 835 cabins which can accommodate 2,435 passengers. It's for this exact reason that some technical specifications have been changed, in order to provide passengers peace of mind. It would also have a welded, not riveted, hull as well as modern navigation and radar equipment.
The Titanic II, a replica of the original "ship of dreams", will be setting sail in 2022, following the same Southampton, England, to NY route the famed Titanic tried in 1912.
According to Blue Star Line's official website, Titantic II will also have the same class categories as the original Titanic - First, Second, and Third Class - will replicate the Titanic in length, and will represent original dining rooms and restaurants.
But USA Todayreports Palmer has finalised the $500 million (R7.3 billion) project and Titantic II is set to make its two-week maiden voyage in 2022.
Deemed "practically unsinkable", when it debuted as the world's largest passenger ship at the time, the original Titanic sank in the morning hours of April 15, 1912 after striking an iceberg in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. More than 1500 people died, making the Titanic's first and only voyage one of the deadliest commercial peacetime maritime disasters in modern history.
The tragedy inspired the 1997 Academy Award-winning film, Titanic, which starred Leonardo Di Caprio and Kate Winslet.
