Search for the captain of the Titanic II begins

Earlier in the year Australian billionaire, Clive palmer, revealed his plans to rebuild the iconic ocean liner the Titanic. Set to launch in 2016, 104 years after the original voyage, the Titanic II is now looking for its perfect captain.




According to Mr Palmer several applications to work on the board the £400 million replica ship have already been received, ranging from requests to work in the ship's kitchens right up to being the captain of the ship. Turkish Baths 
“Some of the applicants for the captain’s position are cruise ship captains and some are super tanker captains,” Mr Palmer told The Australian. “But I would see one of the best jobs on Titanic II really as being the activities director because there are so many activities to do on the boat and there are so many different ideas going back in time. We’ll be having balls and arranging a whole lot of different things.”


Mr palmer has claimed that benefits staff would receive working on the ship include “ bragging rights” and “falling in love.” As for wages, the billionaire has said staff would be paid similar money to employees on other cruise ships but that there would be “a certain elitism to say you've worked on Titanic II."  Artists Impression of Standard Cabin


The new ocean liner aims to offers guests a “true 1912 experience” and will feature antique decor throughout the ship, a smoking room, radio room and opulent dining rooms but will not contain any televisions or internet connections. The Titanic II will completely replicate the original ship from the route it will take on its maiden trip to New York right down to the food served on board - in fact, the only main change will be safety features within the inner workings of the ship.
