  1. I want to take my daughter on the Titanic 2 when will you know how much the tickets will be for definite prices

  2. I would give my life to sail on the Titanic II. Even if it perished I would be honored to go down with it. I would like to know how much it would cost to purchase a ticket or work on the ship in some way. I have always been so fascinated with the Titanic and would do whatever it takes to be a part of it.

  3. I probably know everything that you could know about the titanic and it would be a dream come true to be able to go on that ship. Also I do not think that it will sink because there was an article that said that all the technology would be 21st century tech and that there would be enough life boats for everyone. Also for tbhe people on the look out they could actually give them binoculars so that they can see. Please help me figure out the ticket prices for 6 people. It would be a dream come true 😉

  4. I am a 28 year career hairdresser with 8 years managerial experience. How does one apply for employment on the ship for the maiden voyage and thereafter? Nobody will run that ships salon like I will!

  5. How much cost of Titanic 2 tickets? I would like to purches two first class tickets. If anyone know please inform me..because its my passion. And I think it never sink again..

    1. Yahhh I will shee titanic movie I get a hurt so many dead n capton dead n I hope titanic ship is the best ship n strong ship very powerfull ship n I bigest fan of titanic 2 n I very happy titanic is back yuppppp…….!!!!! We I luv u titanic

  6. It would be absolutely great to be a part of Titanic II voyage. I will do anything ( except theft ) to get this ticket and will try my best to be a part of this voyage. One thing for sure, it will not sink. We all will be safe.

  7. It will be a disaster. It will sink. Mark my words. May not have as many casualties but there will be a tragic outcome.

    1. Hi my name is Seth Harrison and im going sail on this Titanic. I don’t think history would repeat its self. If it does come to that point then i guess ships like that were not meant to be in the water any more. What I’m trying to say is maybe it will sink maybe it won’t but im 97.6% sure history was not meant to repeat.

      1. It’s not the historical issue of repeating itself, it’s the cheap Chinese metal which will rust before the ship reaches its final destination.

        Made in China = Buy extra life insurance

  8. You are confusing two projects. The ship that is currently being built in Sichuan, China has NOTHING to do with Clive Palmer’s project. It is a stationary all-Chinese replica that will never leave a far-inland reservoir in the river Qi, where it will be a floating hotel and a theme park attraction.

    There are so far no signs that Clive Palmer is building anything or that his project will ever come to fruition. Even the revised launch date of 2018 is pretty impossible now. We are well into 2017 and no construction or even steel cutting has started.

    Forget about Palmer, at least for now. In 2019 you can at least go to a Titanic-shaped floating hotel in China. All the iconic locations, like the Grand Staircase, will likely be reproduced with fair accuracy.

  9. Just an ” OMG ” . I have been a die hard fan of titanic . Ask me anything bout it …answers r wid me 24×7 hours . I would just love to purchase a first class ticket nd experience d beauty nd d nature of d ship . Just go back in those times nd feel it .

  10. I’m too excited for this titanic replica..i’m always facinated by the ship..l would like to purches a third class ticket …to explore the trip adventures way….and i dont think that it’s going to sink again…and if it will we are not going to die like Jack cause this time there will be enough life boats…i does’nt matter if it’s sink again..may be i’ll have a life time experience to remember..because i’m going to got into the life boat…

      1. There actually were not enough boats, Louise. While the boats that were there may have not filled up to capacity, the originals Titanic could have held 64 rescue boats total but due to the belief that it was unsinkable, the designers decided against adding all 64 boats due to wanting to save space.

  11. I think it is Great for them to build another Ship like Titanic. My Brother Michael had always been a Big Fan of the first Titanic. Oh how, I wish that I could purchase 8 Tickets so, that My Parents , My Brother and his Wife , My Wife and Myself, and MY Wife’s Parents, could all take a Ride on the Greatest Ship Ever Made since the First One in 1912… My Brother did a whole Article on The Titanic back in the 5 th.grade. And since then, he talks about how, he would love to see the New Titanic 2 and possibly go on a Cruise on The Titanic 2. So, If anyone is interested in helping me out and purchase the 8 Tickets for me, I would be totally Greatful. Sincerely, Brian Anderson

  12. Wow, after the first Titanic, they are building another one? This is not a brilliant idea after what happened to the first Titanic. I mean come on, what if the new ship sinks, who in their right mind would build a second Titanic? Although, I wonder if the Titanic was jinxed or something. One of the people said from the movie, “God himself cannot sink this ship.” If I were the person that came up with this idea, I would cancel the trip. I just don’t think it’s safe.

    1. Some people would definitely say that the titanic was cursed especially seeing as how it was a sister ship of two others (the Britannic and the Olympic) all of which encountered disaster on their maiden voyages. Whilst the Olympic survived and managed to become a reliable vessel well-known for its use in the world war, both Britannic and titanic sunk on their maiden voyage.
