Well, the Titanic II is all set to embark on a brand new quest. The ocean liner, a replica of the original Olympic class RMS Titanic will have no access to any social networking site such as Twitter or Facebook or any e-mails (…hoping for the satisfaction of shocking everybody of this social media era). In an attempt to enjoy a communication-free vacation, Clive Palmer’s BLUE STAR LINE has been coordinating with China’s state-owned CSC Jinling Shipyard to recreate the dramatic journey made by the Titanic in 1912.
"It will be a chance for people to return to a different age, when there was a whole different social fabric. It’s no bad thing to take some time with your family and friends," Australian mining tycoon Clive Palmer, who has unveiled the blueprints for a successor ship to the ill-fated Titanic, said.
Of course, this time there shall be sufficient lifeboats (because you can’t call it ‘unsinkable’). The journey is scheduled to begin in late 2016 and, as if we’ve been urging this for a long time, there are already 40,000 interested persons willing to pay big bucks to enjoy every bit of this mesmerizing experience. So, if you are thinking of a modern way
to renounce the world to experience the Titanic journey, here’s your chance!
