Titanic the sequel: Would-be passengers offer up to $1M for passage on replica ship
Let’s hope the sequel is better than the original. Prospective passengers of the Titanic II have reportedly offered up to US$1-million for a spot on the vessel for its maiden voyage, reports the U.K.’s Sky News.
The full-size replica, a pet project of Australian mining billionaire Clive Palmer, will be built in China, beginning in April.
“It’s difficult to replicate a luxury liner, but Jinling Shipyard has a history of 60 years of building various kinds of vessels with high quality,” the shipyard’s director, Ge Biao, told China’s Xinhua news agency.
