Sorry Geir, if you read though the article it states :  .. "a formal construction contract has not yet been signed".

Clive Palmer talks the talk and is good at building publicity. It's also good publicity for the Chinese who are never shy of blowing their own trumpets. However, publicity is probably the only thing that will be built. It's never going to happen. Trust me.

It seems like Clive Palmer still has plans for the TITANIC II

No Steve, I can't see them doing that in 2 years at all. I do believe what Phil said, It's never going to happen and that It's just a publicity stunt.

Brgds,
Geir

Quite a romantic dream but as many have said: Just waffle.
Shame, becuase if the idea did actually get to reality...I would consider a cruise on her.
(Definitely 3rd class: I'd take my ukelele with me.)

Looks like they are behind schedule with this waste of money project. The below link is some general info on the CSC Jinling shipyard.

And this below link is the shipyards website.  As of April 2016, construction had not begun on the vessel.

Shouldn't the maiden voyage be from Southampton to New York? Kinda tacky having it in China.....

Just keeping it real....
