At a Tuesday press event in New York, Australian billionaire Clive Palmer, chairman of Blue Star Line shipping company, unveiled blueprints for his company's planned Titanic II. It's an exact replica of the haunted 1912 cruise liner that ... well, you've seen the movie.

Palmer claims Titanic II will be the safest cruise ship in the world when it sets sail in 2016 from Southampton, England, bound for New York, following the ill-fated Titanic's original planned route.

With all the global warming, there's no chance another iceberg would be there.

Let's hope that "exact replica" isn't entirely true, considering it was serious design flaws that caused that ship to sink - not to mention the lack of adequate life boats.

Who wants an old ass design like that. Cruise ships nowadays have slides and theaters and wave machines.

Titanic was a great ship over 100 years ago. Now... No so much. Replicate would be a major mistake.

I imagine it will have the same luxuries as modern cruise ships, since they are able to save a lot of space by not having so many steam plants.

I would definitely go except that it would probably cost most of my retirement savings. :)
