Blue Star Line, the shipping company behind the Titanic II project, have at least made one notable change from the original - they're stepping up safety measures, which means loads and loads of lifeboats in case the unthinkable happens. By Joe Quirke0 CommentsA $500m replica of the Titanic could set to sea by 2022, if a plan conceived by Australian mining billionaire Clive Palmer comes to fruition.
Around 1,500 people are believed to have been killed.
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.
After its two-week maiden voyage is completed, the Titanic II is expected to embark on other routes across the world.

Meanwhile, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he would reveal the "naked truth" of the matter in Parliament on Tuesday. Riyadh has given multiple and conflicting accounts on what led to Khashoggi's death on October 2 at its consulate in Istanbul.
Citing a report, James McDonald, global marketing director of Palmer's company Blue Star Line said that: "The new Titanic will, of course, have modern evacuation procedures, satellite controls, digital navigation, and radar systems and all those things you'd expect on a 21st-century ship". But the Titanic II is being billed as a luxury experience, so we can assume that even a third-class berth will not go for peanuts. There's been no announcement yet as to how much the Atlantic crossing is going to cost passengers.
Titanic II will feature the same dimensions, architecture and cabin layout as the original ship as well as the same class categories, restaurants, dining rooms, and length.
An Australian court ruled a year ago that Citic needed to pay Palmer's company millions in royalties from the project.
First, second, and third class tickets will be available, just like the original and there will be a swimming pool, gymnasiums, and Turkish bath.
Clive Palmer has been wanting to build the Titanic II for many years.
