People have a fascination with the Titanic, the doomed ship that sank more than 100 years ago in the North Atlantic Ocean.

Also called the “ship of dreams,” the Titanic was unlike anything people had seen before. And now, travelers may have the chance to see it again.

A replica of the world’s most famous “unsinkable” ship which struck an iceberg and sank on its maiden voyage on April 15, 1912, killing 1,503 people is under construction, with a maiden voyage planned for 2018.

Australian tycoon and politician Clive Palmer is at the helm of the ambitious project to faithfully recreate the luxury ship, which will be about 13 feet wider to meet current regulations.

When all is said and done, the “Titanic II” will cost nearly $434 million.

The ship is expected to set sail in 2018 from Jiangsu in eastern China to Dubai. The first Titanic originally set sail from Southampton on its way to New York.
