Yes you saw it right. Blue star Line is building an exact replica of the famous titanic which is all set to release in 2018. The new Titanic will have everything from staircase to swimming pools exactly similar to the old one. The maiden voyage is being planned from Jiangsu, China to Dubai in 2018. Nowadays ships come with all kinds of luxuries but this ship will not have these luxuries, rather it would have classic Turkish baths, small swimming pools.
The new Titanic has a very similar infrastructure to the old one which is quite evident from these pictures.
The dining halls in both the ships have the same Jacobean style of architecture.
The original ship had such a large dining room that it almost covered the entire length of the ship.
The two ships are not exactly similar though.
The new Titanic would have a diesel engine instead of the steam one used by the original ship. Also, it will have enough lifeboats for all the passengers.
The new Titanic will be 13ft wider than the old one. And, it would even have a gym with Edwardian equipment.
Rooms in the Titanic-2 would be similar to the old one. They would have similar wooden work and his and hers separate sinks.
Blue Star Line would shed a lot of money in building this ship. Around 300-400 million Euros will be spent on this project.
The ship will be able to carry 2345 passengers along with 900 crew at a time.
The bridge of the ship would be equipped with all the modern technology.
