Titanic is all set to sail again since it drowned, about more than 100 years ago. Clive Palmer has launched the replica of Titanic II and this project involves a huge investment for about £300 million.
The plans made by Blue Star is to launch the Titanic similar to the old look, with a slight increase in length of two feet and 13 feet wide along with other additions of modern safety and navigational features. It will accommodate 2400 passengers with first, second and third class. Many are ready to pay as much as $900,000 to be on it's introductory voyage.
These spectacular interior images of historic Titanic can be compared with the new formatted one (Titanic 2) which is exactly alike, yet modern and lavish.

Its maiden voyage will be in 2018 from Jiangsu in Eastern China to Dubai. This time there will be twice as many life boats and hopefully the expedition will be successful.
The original Titanic sank on it's maiden voyage in 1912 following a collision with an iceberg in the North Atlantic, causing death to more than 1,500 passengers and crew.
