Blue Star Line announced in Brisbane, Australia, today that the Global Launch of Titanic II will be attended by New York Senators, Ambassadors and Consulate Generals as well as representatives of the people of New York.

The dinner, which will be held at Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum on December 4, 2012, will be attended by the Chairman of the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation Kenneth Feinberg, New York Senator Patrick M. Gallivan, and Irish Consulate General in New York Noel Kilkenny, Ambassador Mark Layall Grant and award-winning theatrical and television producer Francine LeFrak.

Held in honour of Titanic, past, present and future, guests will be taken on a culinary journey back to the Edwardian era and enjoy dishes from the same 11 course menu that was served to first class passengers on board the Titanic on the night of April 14, 1912.

Blue Star Line is bringing together some of New York and the world’s most influential people to honour and remember the history of Titanic and celebrate the future of Titanic II, with the final blueprints of Titanic II to be unveiled at the New York Global Launch dinner.

Blue Star Line, has undertaken the task of building Titanic II, a replica of the original luxury vessel, which is scheduled to set sail from Southampton to New York on her maiden passenger voyage in 2016.

As a ex builder of steel huls to private customers, it would be awesome to have the chance to have a look at this liner when/if it docks in Brisbane.

This is a truly wonderful and noble thing that Mr. Palmer is doing and it honors the memory of passengers and crew lost with the original. I wish Mr. Palmer and Blue Star Line great success with the Titanic II. I
