Deltamarin has undertaken a full review of the project to ensure the vessel will be compliant with all current safety and construction regulations, as well as meeting the design criteria laid down by Blue Star Line.

Examples of Deltamarin’s work impressed Blue Star Line, with ships such as ‘Celebrity Solstice’ and ‘Celebrity Equinox’, two of the most ground breaking cruise ship designs in operation today.

New contract

Blue Star Line Pty Ltd published on April 16, 2013 a press release concerning a new contract signed with Deltamarin to manage Titanic II project development. Deltamarin will be responsible for coordinating the various parties involved in the project including the shipyard, architects, interior designers and operations managers.

For further information on the project, please see Blue Star Line’s website, www.bluestarline.com.au.

Reply to H. K. Fauskanger's comment on 2014-02-10: Q: my own concern is primarily aesthetic, since a row of yellow hyper-modern lifeboats must severely detract from the traditional Titanic "look". - A: Thank you for your comment. At the beginning of each cruise a life saving exercise will be arranged for all passengers. The passengers will gather to the dedicated muster station life-jackets on and get the instructions from the crew.

Reply to James D's comment on 2014-02-07: Q: 1) will there not be cages separating the classes? 2) do you know when construction will begin? - A: 1) No similar cages. Safety is of the highest priority in the design. 2) The starting of the construction is not yet fixed.

Reply to Chris Shaw's comment on 2014-02-06: Q: "will construction even start and if so when will we hear news?" - A: The first project development phase has been completed. Currently the focus is on the evaluation and the project master plan development. More information will be available when this phase is completed.

Reply to Malcolm Oliver's comment on 2014-02-05: 1) Q: what some of public rooms might be on the new 'safety deck'? - A: The details will be revealed later, the new safety deck includes for example a casino and a show lounge. 2) Q: Is it really possible to have the real bridge BEHIND the historic one? - A: Not necessarily, the visibility criteria has to be followed. The final layout is still under development.

Thank you for your reply. I confess that my own concern is primarily aesthetic, since a row of yellow hyper-modern lifeboats must severely detract from the traditional Titanic "look". Obviously the lifeboats have to be there, but they don't have to be constantly exposed (to human eyes and rough elements alike!) I have seen the sentiment expressed that people might have a psychological need to see the full set of lifeboats for themselves before they embark on a ship like this, but I think that is to greatly underestimate the potential customers. I trust you and Blue Star Line will make the right decision and include doors in front of the boats, restoring the (seemingly!) uninterrupted hull.

this time will there not be cages separating the classes & here is a good advertising slogan "This time it really is unsinkable" also do you know when construction will begin?this year soon?

Hello, I have been a fan of this project ever since it started because I have a really big interest in the Titanic and her sinking. Most of my questions have already been answered and I want to ask something we all want to know and that is "will construction even start and if so when will we hear news?" The reason I ask this is because we have heard very little news about this project besides model testing being finished. About what time at this month do you expect the final contract to be signed and how long after that do you think the first piece of steel will be cut. Last, when will we be able to see the final design? Thanks, Chris

Hi Vesa, 1) what some of public rooms might be on the new 'safety deck'. 2) Is it really possible to have the real bridge BEHIND the historic one? I look forward to seeing updated renderings of the exterior. Thanks

Reply to H. K. Fauskanger's comment on 2014-02-02: Yes indeed, the covering of the life boats will be considered. The rough weather impact will be investigated as a part of the seakeeping analysis.

Could you please make our day by telling us that a decision has ben made to hide the new lifeboats behind doors, instead of having a huge gaping HOLE in the hull? That is such a painfully grating departure from the appearance of the original Titanic that it largely defeats the very purpose of the supposed "replica". Also, the sometimes rough weather of the Atlantic could damage the lifeboats if they are directly exposed, as has happened to other ships.
