NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – An Australian billionaire is planning to build a replica of the original Titanic.
The Titanic II will follow the planned trans-Atlantic path of its doomed namesake from Southampton, England to New York City and will have the same interior and cabin layout as the original. Passengers will also wear costumes from 1912.
“This ship has so far had 40,000 people on our website for tickets, we’ve had 16 people that have offered to pay more than $750,000 to $1 million per cabin,” said Clive Palmer who is the chairman of shipping company Blue Star Line.
