“`Titanic II is set to make its fourteen-day maiden voyage in 2022. Construction of the replica recently resumed by Blue Star Line after a financial dispute held up the $500 million project for several years.

“`This ship, which features the same cabin layout and decor as the original, sets a course from Dubai to Southampton, England, and then on to New York. It traces the North Atlantic route of its doomed namesake, which sunk on April 12, 1912, three hours after sideswiping an iceberg.

“`The new ocean liner’s first trip will carry almost the same number of passengers and crew as the original. Plus, it boasts modern navigation and safety technology; including life jackets and plenty of lifeboats.

“`Wealthy Americans have offered up to one million dollars each for their opportunity to join the inaugural cruise. A movie production crew will also be on the voyage to document stories of passengers.

“`After its initial voyage, Titanic II will embark on other global routes. The replica is being built in China instead of the original shipyard in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Organizers are promoting the vessel as a floating replica museum.

“`It may be a trip to remember. Everything but the iceberg.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
