London, Mar. 3 (ANI): The internet, Twitter and e-mails will be banned on board the replica of the ill-fated Titanic to give passengers a chance to relax and talk to each other. Mining tycoon Clive Palmer, 58, is using his own money to build an exact copy of the liner that hit an iceberg and sank off the coast of Newfoundland during its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York in April 1912 with the loss of 1,502 lives, reports Express.co.uk. The Australian billionaire said things were simpler in 1912, and the Titanic II will be a chance for people to return to a different age, when there was a whole different social fabric. Palmer''s Blue Star Line has agreed a deal in principle with China''s state-owned CSC Jinling Shipyard to build Titanic II to the original design, but with modern safety improvements. Already 40,000 people have expressed an interest in booking one of its 835 first, second or third-class cabins for the voyage in late 2016. Passengers will be issued with a wardrobe of 1912 clothes and this time there will be more than enough lifeboats. (ANI)
