The replica Titanic is now on firmer ground

The replica Titanic is now on firmer ground

We’ve talked a LOT about the project funded by Clive  Palmer, the billiionaire Aussie who wants to construct an exact replica of the Titanic ship that went down into 12,000 feet of the Atlantic in 1915.

READ More about Clive’s efforts on our blogs. and search on the site for numerous stories.

So now we learn the the project is back on his front burner.

Titanic II should have floated in 2016. Problems arose and things slowed WAY down. Maybe by late 2019 or into 2020.

His venture is called Blue Star... a play on the original White Star line. The Titanic II will have identical interiors and cabins. But it will boast modern systems. The ever-changing routing is now said to be Southampton to New York…just like the fateful trip.

It will burn diesel instead of coal, but will be graced with four fake smoke stacks. Oh, the real one was a “real” fake – it was there to look more powerful! Nine decks will hold over 840 cabins for 2,400 guests.

Titanic II will even have authentic gym equipment.

You can even enjoy first class, second, or suffer in a shared bath third class.

As things evolve, we’ll keep you posted. Although I doubt that speakers will be employed – it’s just too early to tell….but there will be a lot of sea days.

We can show you how to get free cruises for two on real – modern ships. Just give talks on interesting subjects. 45 minutes. The audience is generally older people who are retired. Make them fun and not classes. Soft mush topics don’t get accepted by the lines. We can help you with your topics.

Our program works – we have helped dozens of folks become cruise ship speakers. In fact, I leave this week for a cruise from Shanghai – to Vietnam.  Cool – Oh yeah, free.

Send us an inquiry – you’ll get info and even a 15-min free chat. We’ll toss in a free e-book on all this.
