Default New Titanic?

I heard a few years ago that a shipyard was building a modern replica of the Titanic for a cruise line. Did anyone else hear this and does anyone know if this is actually being built? Seemed like a silly idea at the time. Just curious.

Thanks

Just a silly rumor with no truth to it.

They really couldn't make a replica of it, and if they did, who would sail it. No theater, no outside swimming pools, huge, horrendously expensive first class cabins and tight, cramped quarters everywhere else. Who wants to sail steamships anymore, certainly not the people who work in the engine room. When I sailed an older ship (1938) in 1959, men would come off watch totally grubby, hot sweaty and black with soot. Now they come off clean. There are far too many reasons why we should let the idea of Titanic rest with her bones. BTW, have you seen the new James Cameron Imax of Titanic? They managed to get inside of her with robot cameras. The leaded glass and wrought iron windows (huge) in the fist class dining room are still intact! They filmed them with a bank of lights at their rear - the first time light has been through those windows in almost 100 years. Better than his original movie.
