No Twitter And Facebook For Titanic II Passengers


London: Social media and other internet facility including e-mails will be banned on board the replica of the doomed Titanic liner to give passengers a chance to relax and talk to each other.

"It will be a chance for people to return to a different age, when there was a whole different social fabric. It's no bad thing to take some time with your family and friends," Australian Mining tycoon Clive Palmer, who has unveiled the blueprints for a successor ship to the ill-fated Titanic, said.

"In 1912 things were simpler," the 58-year-old billionaire tycoon, said.

Palmer's Blue Star Line has agreed a deal in principle with China's state-owned CSC Jinling Shipyard to build Titanic II to the original design, but with modern safety improvements, 'Express.co.uk' reported.

Around 40,000 people have already expressed an interest in booking one of its 835 first, second or third-class cabins for the historic voyage planned to begin in late 2016.

The report said passengers will be issued with a wardrobe of 1912 clothes and this time there will be more than enough lifeboats available for safety of the passengers.

Palmer is using his own money to build an exact copy of the liner that hit an iceberg and sank off the coast of Newfoundland during its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York in April 1912 with the loss of 1,502 lives, the report said.
