Well some rich son-of-a-bitch stole my idea…. The Australian billionaire, Clive Palmer, is looking to make more history and build an exact replica of the Titanic.
Now I’m thinking this is an awesome idea, the man is a genuis, I’d buy a ticket. Alright, genuis is a strong word…. The man is rich, and I’m surprised no one has done this earlier. With all the news of big lovable modern cruiseships these days (due to their untimely incidents, naturally), you can’t help but Google them and see what they’re all about… and what they’re all about, is effing huge. I mean, they’re huge! Why the shit would you go spend money to be on a boat, when the them of the boat is to be on land (i.e. movie theatres, market squares, etc). It just doesn’t make sense, then again I’ve never been on a cruise, so I’m somewhat bias.
What I like about the idea of the Titanic is that it’s a step backwards, in a sense. A new cruise is ship is going to be built that is not going to be anywhere near the largest ship on the ocean, nor is it going to be the fastest. It’s not going to have any room for the fanciness of the Allure of the Seas. It’s to be an exact replica of a historic monument.
Obviously, there are going to be some modern additions… Lifeboats, for one. I was just reading about the lifeboats on the Allure of the Seas and how ridiculous they are (in a good way). I also hope they don’t segregate passengers this time around, because by George I won’t be able to afford a first class ticket. You know who I think had it rough back then? Second class…. According to James Cameron, 1st class were quite posh, has everything. Third class, partying it up in the basement and basically have the run of the place. Second class? Just sitting around I guess… no mention. Then again I haven’t seen the movie in a long time…. OR in 3D!
Regardles, Titanic II is going to be a smash hit (is that an 80s term? I feel like it’s outdated), and I for one would definitely buy a ticket (but bringing my own lifejacket).
Anyways, sidenote, apologies for not putting up anything interesting (as in, anything at all). I really have been sucking at this lately, but I’m oh-so struggling to keep doing it!
Keep tabs, I swear!
