Would you cruise on Titanic 2

I have just been reading that an Australian billionaire has commissioned a shipyard in China to build an exact replica of the Titanic.

Now this would be fabulous as we have all fallen in love with the pictures we have all seen recently of the fabulous decor and staterooms in the original ill fated ship.

Apparently this ship will be finished in 2016 and her maiden voyage will be from England to North America.

I think this would be a huge success as so many of us would love the opportunity to sail on something as beautiful of course as long as she doesnt sink....

With todays technology on board I am sure that she would not meet the same fate as the original

Mr Palmer said the rebuild was a tribute to the spirit of the men and women who worked on the original Titanic, which sank after hitting an iceberg on April 15, 1912 and cost the lives of 1,514 passengers and crew.

The businessman said design work in conjunction with a historical research team had commenced on the new Titanic, which will have 840 rooms and nine decks.
The Chinese navy has been invited to escort Titanic II on its maiden voyage to New York.
Mr Palmer said the ship's funnels, which with modern propulsion would be purely decorative, and would be used to house a restaurant, a theatre and an "internet room".
