New Dates for Titanic II Breakfast in Southhampton

Shipping company Blue Star Line has announced a new date for the Southampton Breakfast at The Grand Cafe and has also rescheduled five other Titanic II events around the world.

In April, 2012, Mr Clive Palmer, a leading Australian businessman and owner of Blue Star Line, declared to the world his intention to build Titanic II, a full-scale recreation of the world’s most famous cruise liner.

The six Titanic II events were originally scheduled to take place in December, 2012. However, following the devastation caused in New York and along the east coast of the United States by Hurricane Sandy the decision was made to postpone all events until 2013.

Mr Palmer said the Southampton Breakfast will now be held on Tuesday, March 5, 2013 at The Grand Cafe.

Mr Palmer said Southampton has been central to Titanic and her story for over a century.

“She began her ill-fated journey from the city’s port and more than five hundred Southampton families were tragically touched by the 1912 disaster,” he said.

“While looking ahead to the exciting Titanic II project we shall commemorate the past by paying tribute to the courage of passengers, crew and artisans who contributed so much to the ship of dreams.”

Titanic II is scheduled to set sail from Southampton to New York on her maiden passenger voyage in 2016.

    I have always been fascinated by the Titanic. Almost to the point of obsession as if I were on that ship when it went down. I’ve even gone as far as getting a list of the occupants of every room to see if I recognize a name. I would give anything to be able to be on the new Titanic 2. I think it’s awesome That someone would rebuild this massive massive beautiful piece of history. I know that this wish will never come true But maybe someday , just maybe! This is a beautiful man with a beautiful heart to recreate the Titanic in all its glory. I am excited because I know that even though I will never be able to be on that ship I can at least see photos of the end results!! WOW!

    Hello- I was interested in finding out the schedule for the Titanic II, after she arrives back from her maiden voyage. I live in Baltimore, and we host many ships from around the world year-round at the Inner Harbor. Will Titanic be taking east coast visits for tourists? Thank You. – Chris
