If you have ever watched the ‘Titanic’, shed silent tears when it sunk but also fancied the grandeur, then you might get a chance to live that dream because if ever there is an original that is dreamy, then you can always trust the Chinese to replicate it.

The project is estimated to be around $145 million and is expected to be completed in 2018. The copy is being touted as a mirror copy of the original ‘Titanic’, will have a ball room and a magnificent theatre. The guests on board can not just experience the grandeur, but can actually stay in the ship as well.November 30, 2016
Celebrated Hollywood producer and production designer Curtis Schnell is on board and is ensuring that the replica is perfect. In a recent interview, Schnell explained, “‘we’re trying to get as close as we can. We are not building every room in the ship, by any means, but the shell of the ship and the exteriors will be quite accurate, there will be interior rooms to be able to tour and see from the standpoint of historical accuracy”.
The average cost for this shenanigan for a night would be an estimate $345. The original ‘Titanic’ sank in 1912 and around 1500 people lost their lives in the tragedy. The 984 foot vessel is being built by the Wuchang Shipbuilding Industry Co.
