Blue Star Line, an Australian-based company owned by billionaire Clive Palmer, is planning to recreate the original Titanic ship, except with modern amenities and safety standards.

This time around, the ship with have more life boats and ~air conditioning~.

Palmer had originally announced his plans to build the ship in 2012, but he faced delays, according to Today.

The delays led some to speculate the project was not moving forward, but a company spokesman told the Belfast Telegraph that it was merely being pushed back by two years.

The new vessel will have 840 cabins and a capacity of 2,400 passengers, the Belfast Telegraph reported.

The crew will consist of roughly 900 people.

The company hasn't said how much a ticket on the ship will cost, but the company told the Belfast Telegraph that they had been offered nearly $1 million by people to take the trip. BuzzFeed has reached out to Blue Star Line for comment.

All *aboard*. The ship plans to set off on its maiden voyage from Jiangsu, China, to Dubai, in 2018, the Belfast Telegraph reported.
