    Isn't it bad luck to name a ship the same name after the original sank?

    But who am I kidding, it's also bad luck to bring bananas on a ship too.

    Considering only 20% of the passengers onboard titanic had acceptable accomedation to an extent (1st class had like 10 showers...) and everyone else had boxed rooms bellow.. If he modernises it wont be titanic tbh and it will fit probably 30% less passangers to have the modern facilities.

    They should use the same steel and iron rivets, it worked so well last time.

    Does anyone else think this is kind of stupid?
    If you want to build a big ship, build a big ship, but naming it after the greatest non-military maritime disaster is just going to hurt its rep.

    What's next? Hindenburg II?

    Seriously, if this ever comes to fruition, I'll totally go on the maiden voyage. Sailing on the Titanic is an impossible dream for me, and now it might happen!

    If they make it too much like the original, it'll be fucking boring. Turkish baths aren't exactly a hot property nowadays, and the first class people will need something a little more interesting than "socializing" to take up the time.

    This is what gets me though : won't this basically be exactly like a cruise liner?

    I'm pretty sure modern day cruise liners are just as luxurious and fancy, if not more, than the Titanic was (though not stylistically).

    So seems like to me, this is just going to end up as a cruise ship that happens to have a more art neuvo/victorian style to it, and with a much higher barrier to entry to get on. And you'll probably end up having a better time on a real cruise ship as it will likely do stuff like anchor at cruise island destinations, etc.

    The difference and the whole appeal of the thing is it's the motherfucking Titanic.

    For the love of god: Don't name is The Titanic or The Titanic II, that's just some baaaaaaaaaaad juju.

    Also this story reminds me of all those "CRAZY ECCENTRIC BILLIONAIRE!" stories you read about, how grossly irresponsible they use their money :v
