Ever had that sinking feeling?

Well.. lets hope history doesn't repeat itself here then!
Some rich dude is building another Titanic! I remember reading about this last year but forgot to post about it. Anyway here is more at the DM:

Re: Ever had that sinking feeling?

Not sure how I feel about this tbh
I one breath I think it is a good Idea
In the other it feels in poor taste to those who lost their lives

Re: Ever had that sinking feeling?

I think it is a brilliant idea....
We have museums to remind ourselves of those lost.... both at sea and on land.... this one will be a new ship, and built to modern standards of construction and safety.  Having the ship built as a replica is going to make it a unique experience to travel on it, in much the same way as those original travellers...
Not much different from travelling on old/replica steam railways.....  ( well a bit more luxurious ..    Cheesy    but you get the gist )...

I doubt whether there would be much luxury if travelling third class.

but..... that is the whole point of travelling "third class"... you get the " experience " of Leonardo Di Caprio !  Cheesy
