Titanic II will set sail in 2022 and it's going over on Twitter about as well as you'd expect
Titanic II, a replica of the original Titanic, will make its first voyage in 2022. It will have room for 2,400 passengers and 900 crew members, just like the original Titanic. Also, it will trace the precise route of the original ship.
What could go wrong?
If this idea seems flatly stupid to you, you're not alone. (We might as well recreate the Hindenburg.) But, like most stupid ideas, it caused people on Twitter to make some good jokes, particularly in response to tweets from TIME and USA Today about the announcement.
Titanic II will have a slightly more difficult task than its predecessor. It will begin its journey in Dubai, then travel to Southampton, U.K. — the starting point for its copycat journey to New York.
So far, we're not sure when tickets will be available, nor how much they'll cost. What, did you want one? Oh my god. You sucker.
We assume they'll at least up the lifeboat count?
