Comment: It will be every bit as luxurious as the original (Score 1) 289

by JohnHegarty (#39848289) Attached to: Australian Billionaire Plans To Build Titanic II

He is saying "It will be every bit as luxurious as the original Titanic" and also "as similar as possible to the original Titanic in design and specifications".

But the Titanic design wouldn't be anything near luxurious in 2012. For starts not cabins except for the best first class cabins had bathrooms. Adding them to cabins would require a major redesign of the layout.

In 2012 no one would travel in the cabins from 2nd and 3rd classes.

The ship also won't have anything near the facilitates that's expected these days. The Titanic may have been a very large ship in 1912 , but in 2012 it would considered very small.
