Titanic II: I Don’t Think I’ll Be Booking

Believe it or not, but Titanic II is in the works — and we’re not talking about a sequel to the seminal 1997 film. We’re talking about an actual ship built as a near-exact replica of the ill-fated passenger liner that sank in 1912, taking the lives of over 1,500 people with it into the freezing Atlantic. While the project has had a number of ups and downs, the latest news from Blue Star Line — an Australian company that takes its name from a now-defunct ship company from England — is that the elegant ship is set to sail in 2018. What’s next? Lusitania II? Remember the Maine II?
