Titanic the Sequel?

All aboard once again…if you dare. Just when we got over the Carnival Triumph debacle, an Australian billionaire continues with his plans to recreate an exact replica (how exact?) of the famously doomed ship by 2016. The ship will duplicate its original course from Southampton, England to New York.

Creator Clive Palmer isn’t messing around with these plans. He expects passengers to dress in traditional period garb (costumes are provided), dine on selections from the original menu, and sail with four decorative smoke stacks mimicking the original. Amenities will strictly follow the original with Turkish baths, a squash court, a swimming pool, and a gymnasium with 19th century equipment. Palmer seems so invested in the recreation that I can’t help but wonder if he will plop Leo and Kate on the ship or maybe devise a plan for it to reach an untimely demise.

Is this ship jinxed from the start? I have a feeling this is just the tip of the iceberg in Palmer’s plans (pun intended). Let’s just hope Rose realizes that there’s plenty of room for two on that board this time around.
