The Titanic was dubbed "unskinable", but sank four days into it's maiden voyage in 1912 after colliding with an iceberg in the Atlantic Ocean.

The iconic ship is set to sail again... sort of.

The Titanic 2 will make it's maiden voyage in 2018. The updated version of the historic ship will be nearly identical, with the exception of some modern safety modifications (thank you) which include a welded and not riveted hull and be about four yards wider, modern evacuation procedures, satellite controls, digital navigation and radar systems and meet all safety expectations you would expect on a 21st century ship.

Like the original, Titanic 2 will have first, second and third-class tickets for sale. The ship will also stretch three-hundred-yards-long and 57-yards-high, will have nine floors with eight-hundred-fourty-cabins that will hold two-thousand-four-hundred-passengers and nine-hundred- crew members, however, the ship will avoid the Atlantic Ocean as it journeys from China to Dubai.

Not quite as large as the original Titanic and not nearly as massive as some of today's cruise ships, but inside the halls of the grand ship will reflect the decor of that in 1912.
