Over a century ago, the RMS Titanic's fate became one of the most tragic incidents of modern history, as it descended into the ocean with more than 1500 passengers and crew on board, the unfortunate story was once again narrated in a 1997 film.

More than hundred years after the deaths of thousands in the catastrophe, an exact replica of the historic vessel recreated by Blue Star Line, will set sail from China towards Dubai in 2018.

Titanic II built by Australian billionaire Clive Palmer will be slightly larger than its predecessor as it will be two feet longer and 13 feet wider than RMS Titanic, according to New York Post. It will accomodate 2400 passengers, as many are ready to pay as much as $900,000 to be on the maiden trip.

The new Titanic which hopes to complete a historic journey has been captured in these spectacular pictures.
