I feel like I have heard of companies recreating turn of the century ships. They may not be the Titanic but the look and feel is probably similar though obviously they embellish them with modern amenities and they aren't run on coal or steam anymore.



I do remember reading about someone recreating the dinner menu of the Titanic. It was like a degustation and apparently the food was really nice though very rich.

I mean, look at all the stories about the Queen Mary's supposed hauntings. Do we need that with Titanic?
LOL.
Sorry, I had to laugh at that.

QM spent most of her life sailing to & from her (and my) home port of Southampton.
She didn't have a reputation for ghosts.

Or at least, she didn't until she retired to Long Beach
Rather too many folk in the USA are infatuated by ghosts, aliens, conspiracy theories and all things super-natural.
So suddenly QM had ghosts from the past.

BTW - I'm with those who consider Titanic to be a sea grave, and she should be left where she lies.
I also think Donald Campbell's Bluebird K7 should have been left at the bottom of Coniston Water, and John Parry-Thomas's "Babs" should have been left buried in Pendine Sands.

All JMHO as always

....no... that's a final resting place for so many poor souls.

If a 'replica' was made...yes....but only as first or second class....

I read somewhere that first class ticket would have been approx $124,000. So I guess I will have to deal with my modern day balcony cabin...internet....evening entertainment.....and old images of the famed ship.

A few places did this...especially in the UK for the centenary in 2012.

I took my husband for his 25th Birthday to a local bistro and it was great. They couldn't match the wines but tried to use good replacements.

Would you sail on the Titanic if she could be raised from the ocean floor and fully restored? I ask the question because here in the UK the speed record holder boat Bluebird has been restored and is back on the water. Article here:

My answer to my own question is quite simply NO.

What are your thoughts?

Yes ,because my father came to the US in 1913 from Liverpool .Had he decided to come a year earlier he could very well have been on the Titanic .

Several things to add to this discussion: No, I would feel as if I were disrespecting those who lost their lives if I were to even consider boarding the raised Titanic. I was absolutely stunned when I saw how the Pyramids and the surrounding areas are filled with vendors, kids bouncing balls off the pyramids, and climbing up the steps. I expected a somewhat somber, quieter crowd, as someone had mentioned that these are burial sites. Finally, I suppose if they can make a musical about the Titanic tragedy, then I guess the passage of time does make memories of such awful events fade.

Of course, the “sanctity” of grave sites seems to fade with the passage of time. No one seems to feel that way about Rome’s Castel Sant’Angelo (Hadrian’s) or Egypt’s Great Pyramid (Cheops’) - so certainly a thousand or two years’ passage makes it OK. That Brit parking lot (Richard III’s) was fresher - they still dug him up; but I recall reinterred him with full military honors - sort of thumbing the state’s nose at Henry VII.



We don't drink and dance on Castel Sant'Angelo the way we would on a cruise ship brought bac gto life.



At a ship's hcristening, it is ordered to bring the ship to life.............. crew it/ man it.
