Titanic II To Set Sail In 2020, With Hopes Of A Much Better Outcome

Have you ever watched the Titanic movie and thought to yourself, 'Aw man, I really wish I would have been on that ship!!!'

Yeah, us neither...

But that doesn't mean they're not going to... try it AGAIN!?!?! Yep, you read that right. A second-try at the infamous Titanic, the Titanic II to be exact.

Australian politician and businessman Clive Palmer announced in September that work on the ship was underway, despite a financial dispute with the Chinese government that started back in 2015.

“In 1912 the Titanic was the ship of dreams. For over a century Titanic’s legend has been powered by mystery, intrigue and respect for all she stood for," Clive Palmer, Chairman of Blue Star Line wrote in a statement. “Millions have dreamt of sailing on her, seeing her in port and experiencing her unique majesty. Titanic ll will be the ship where those dreams come true."

But Palmer says not to worry, the Titanic II will have plenty of life boats!

And of course a much more up-to date radar and navigation system. Phew... (Don't forget that the original Titanic sank in 1912, killing over 1,500 people after wrecking into an iceberg... The movie was great though!)

“Blue Star Line will create an authentic Titanic experience, providing passengers with a ship that has the same interiors and cabin layout as the original vessel, while integrating modern safety procedures, navigation methods and 21st century technology to produce the highest level of luxurious comfort."

According to Blue Star Line, the Titanic II's first (and hopefully not final) trip is said to start in 2022, with tickets available in first, second and third classes, just like the original.

“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."

Check out all of the details on CNN, and if you are one of the brave souls willing to try the journey again, good luck and DING-DONG!
