Re: Today’s Titanic

With the exception of the exterior shell's appearance and the interiors appearance, they will be very different ships. The later will likely have pod drive units that both propel and steer the ship. Add dampening systems and the ride will be far more comfortable. Technology marches on and so does demands of banking, insurance and off-shore build and operation codes.

As so well stated, "if it gets built." To make that sailing timeline, the keel needs to be laid very early 2020, if not already underway. Current component building methods greatly reduces time, but, no build yard will start until the money is fully and firmly in place.

If if happens, I would recommend booking for year two or three after regular transit begins between England and the US.


In each Morning's early light; there is a promise, an Amazon makes!
