The Titanic is back - and it's ready to complete the voyage its predecessor attempted over 100 years ago.

The Titanic II, which is being commissioned by Australian company Blue Star Line, will have room for 2 400 passengers, 900 crew members and will be 883 feet long - the same as the original cruiser. The ship was hailed as the largest ship afloat, and the luxury liner attracted some of the richest people in the world.

What is being called Titanic II will have the same design as the original ship and replicate her planned maiden voyage from Southampton, England to NY. It's for this exact reason that some technical specifications have been changed, in order to provide passengers peace of mind.

While the replica will feature much of the same dated décor as the Titanic, safety measures and navigational instruments onboard are said to be state of the art.

Despite taking the same route, the replica will be safer than the original ocean liner by including enough lifeboats and a hull that's welded rather than riveted.

The Titanic II, which is supposed to be a replica of the original Titanic ship, would make its inaugural voyage in 2022 along the same fated route its predecessor took in 1912 between Southampton, England, and NY, according to the cruise company sponsoring the vessel, Blue Star Line.

But USA Today reports Palmer has finalised the $500 million (R7.3 billion) project and Titantic II is set to make its two-week maiden voyage in 2022.

According to Blue Star Line's official website, Titantic II will also have the same class categories as the original Titanic - First, Second, and Third Class - will replicate the Titanic in length, and will represent original dining rooms and restaurants.

The RMS Titanic set sail on April 10, 1912 from Southampton carrying over 2,200 passengers.

The ship became the plot of many Hollywood films including the 1997 movie "Titanic" starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.
