Back in 2012, Australian billionaire Clive Palmer announced that he would recreate the ill-fated RMS Titanic ship and have it sailing by this year. However, the plan has apparently changed and those longing to admire a full-size replica of the Belfast liner will have wait at least two years more.

According to a The Star report, the modern version of the legendary British passenger liner will sail in 2018 instead, more than a century after its predecessor set off on its maiden voyage across the North Atlantic Ocean.

Measuring 270 meters long and 53 meters high and weighing 40,000 tons, Titanic II will reportedly have three cabin classes, 840 cabins, nine floors, Turkish baths, a swimming pool, a gymnasium and a helipad and be able to accommodate 2,400 passengers and 900 crew members.

The ship will also have modern evacuation facilities, satellite controls, digital navigation, radar systems and enough lifeboats for everyone on it. 

From Jiangsu, the Titanic II is slated to make its maiden voyage to Dubai, United Arab Emirates. More information on this ship can be found on its official website. (kes)
