Almost 110 years after the Titanic sank to the floor of the Atlantic Ocean, an Australian shipping company plans on to inaugurate Titanic II on a trip across the Atlantic Ocean in 2022 via the same route the original Titanic took. Blue Star Line wanted to build the ship in 2015, but a financial dispute delayed construction, according to a press release.
Titanic 2 will follow the same journey as its namesake had planned, carrying passengers from Southampton to NY.
The Titanic II will be equipped with 18 fully enclosed lifeboats with a motor.
Although there have been reports that the boat will launch its maiden voyage in 2022, a spokesperson for Blue Star Line, the company behind the Titanic II project, told the Guardian that no dates had been announced yet.
What happens if you win Mega Millions' $1.6B jackpot?
The latest Mega Millions jackpot has soared to $1.6 billion dollars, making it the largest prize in USA lottery history. The largest single prize went to a 2017 player from MA who celebrated a $US758.7 million Powerball payday.
The original Titanic sank in 1912, killing more than 1,500 people.
The Titanic's II maiden voyage will take passengers from Dubai to New York City.
Reports claim there will be nine decks and 840 staterooms that can accommodate 2,400 passengers and 900 crew members, the same as the Belfast original.
It is also believed to be outfitted exactly like the ill-fated luxury liner with the same cabin layouts but with additional modern safety features - including more lifeboats and modern navigation - radar equipment, so that potential icebergs can be spotted well in advance.

Blue Star Line owns the ship, which is called Titanic II.
Visitors will be able to board the Titanic replica and walk around all over the ship, which will include a ballroom, theater, swimming pool and premium first-class cabins, all made to replicate the interior of the original Titanic. The ambitious project will approximately cost $500 million.
A second Titanic II is also being built in a theme park in China. Towards the end of 2017, an Australian court sided with Palmer, ordering Citic Limited to pay hundreds of millions of dollars in back royalty payments to Mineralogy.
