Titanic II’s First Port Stop Announced

Two months after Cruise Fever reported that work on the Titanic II had resumed after a three year delay, the first port stop for the cruise ship was announced.

Blue Star Line announced that world leading marine architecture and interior design company Tillberg Design of Sweden will once again be working on Titanic II. The company is creating an authentic Titanic experience that provides passengers with a cruise ship that has the same interiors and cabin layout of the original vessel.

The ship will integrate modern safety procedures, navigation methods and 21st century technology to produce the highest level of luxurious comfort.  Other safety measure will include the ship being built 12 feet wider and the hull will be welded instead of riveted. And yes, there will be enough lifeboats for everyone on board.

  1. I’m sorry to be a nark and as much I hope Mr Palmer’s vision is fulfilled, his recent track record both in business and Australian politics, is questionable.
    But more strength to him on this.
