The 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic was commemorated across the world earlier this month (April 15th).

Some major events were held in honour of the so-called unsinkable ship, including complete recreations of the final meal served in the ships dining room – which boasted more courses than there were lifeboats.

Despite the many events taking place, however, few would feel comfortable recreating the voyage in full. Unless of course you are an Australian billionare called Clive Palmer.

Mr Palmer is building a replica of the ship, calling it Titanic II. Construction will start next year and the ship's maiden voyage will take place in 2016, which will see it travel from the UK to New York.

Aussies wanting to tempt fate will no doubt be able to use their prepaid travel cards on board, but the trip is likely to be a pricey one as the ship has been described as "the ultimate in comfort and luxury with on-board gymnasiums and swimming pools, libraries, high-class restaurants and luxury cabins".
