  An Australian businessman has undertaken a 
    $500 million project building a replica of the ill-fated
    1912 Titanic
    cruise ship.
  
  Announced in 2012, the design of the vessel, dubbed
    
    Titanic ll, will be a close replica of the original - down
    to the dimensions, architecture, and the layout.
  
  The ship will be able to accommodate 2,400 passengers and
  will feature modern day navigation technology and safety systems,
  including an adequate number of lifeboats and life jackets for
  passengers. 
  
  Ticket prices are not yet available, but the ship could set
  sail as soon as 2022, 
    USA Today reports.

  - and for those who are most entranced, there may soon be a way
  to experience the wonder of one of the most luxurious cruise
  liners in the world.

  By 2022, a new ship modeled after the Titanic could set sail for
  2,400 passengers, thanks to Australian businessman Clive Palmer,
  who shelled out 
  $500 million for the project.
  The Titanic ll, though outfitted with 21st-century navigation and
  safety technology, will be a close replica of the original
  vessel.

  Here's how sailing aboard the Titanic ll will compare to how
