Why doesn't one of the cruise lines build a replica of the Titanic? Im sure people would love to go on it. It would be something different. All the ships now look the same. Im sure they can get the ship plans. I went on the SS. Norway before NCL got rid of it and it was so awesome.
The Cruise lines are building bigger and bigger ships, they are going to have to make a ship that is smaller otherwise a lot of the passengers wont be going on cruise ships anymore. Carnival is going to make a 240,000 ton ship. That's way to big. The biggest ship that I will go on is the Sapphire class and that's way to big as it is. It took forever to get on and off the ship Sapphire.
It would be so cool to see the Titanic floating by into the sunset someday!
Nobody, but nobody will want to sail on a vessel that ended in disaster. No Ship Owner ever names a new ship after one that had a bad history. And I doubt if Celine Dion will want to sing "My heart goes out ..." or Leonardo di Caprio to want to stand on the 'Knight head', the most stupidest place of any on a ship, again.
Even if a Ship Owner could be persuaded; and allowed; to build a replica of the "Titanic" ( and the only thing that would be the same is the name), he, the Ship Owner would have a hard time finding a crew. Sailors are notoriously superstitious and would not sail in a ship of "bad omen".
Being in the industry myself........there is no way we could sell that to our clients. If we could, it'd be a very small minority of them. I actually get asked when making cruise bookings about the Titanic. Especially from newbies to the cruising just making their first reservation. They'll kind of nervously make reference to it and I'll immediately ease their worries. But truly, there are people out there that still think about the Titanic when they think of cruising and are afraid that'll happen to them! So please......no new ships named Titanic. As for the person you said something about it being similar to Cunard....not so much the ship design but the "air" of it could be called similar to it. I think Cunard is the closest you'll get towards the same ambience.
