Cruising On The Titanic
There are certain words or phrases that have a definite meaning, something that virtually everyone knows.
Ponzi? Yeah, you don't want to be involved with anything with that word in it.
If someone says an event is like something out of the 'Twilight Zone', you know it's got to be bizarre.
And what's the first thing you think of when you hear the word 'Titanic'. Is it a leisurely luxury cruise where you can relax, lay back, take it easy, all your cares suddenly gone.
Or perhaps, is there a little piece of ice involved with the thought of that word?
Well, if it's the former and you're looking for a unique vacation idea, how about a nice cruise on one huge boat (and hopefully one that won't been towed back to shore filled with human waste!)?
Well, here's your chance. I just hope they stay away from large pieces of floating ice, except for in your drinks!
(AP) - An Australian billionaire says he wants to build a new version of the Titanic that could set sail in 2016.
Clive Palmer unveiled blueprints for the famously doomed ship's namesake Tuesday at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York.
Palmer said 40,000 people have expressed interest in tickets for the maiden voyage from Southampton, England, to New York, expected in 2016. He said construction is scheduled to start soon in China.
He said people are inspired by his quest to replicate one of the most famous vessels in history.
The original Titanic was the world's largest and most luxurious ocean liner when it hit an iceberg in the North Atlantic and sank on April 15, 1912. More than 1,500 people perished in the maiden voyage.
