Titanic II is a planned ocean liner, based on the original RMS Titanic; the project is directed by Australian billionaire Clive Palmer[3] who announced this project in April 2012.[4] The project has been delayed over the years due to financial disputes that have affected the project of 500$ millions.[5]

This project is not related to the Chinese Project, Romandisea Titanic.
