Please avoid use of words such as “is” or “will be” when discussing vaporware.

Unless you’re in the marine corps. Barracks on land have ladders, decks, and hatches. Barracks at sea have “stairs”, “floors”, and “doors”.

Mark, sorry to say it, but Titanic II does not exist now and likely never will. Those aren’t “images from” the ship; they’re renderings, and they’re several years old. The guy supposedly funding the project appears to be crooked, and there has never been a concrete announcement of the commencement of construction, nor any firm evidence that there’s even a construction deal. Jalopnik tore apart the latest round of credulous media coverage:

ETA: Apologies to SteampunkBanana, who got here with the Jalopnik story way before me.

They may be only renderings, but they look spectacular. Nice Art Deco stylings here

They could combine it with the tech in the Dockwise semi-submersible heavy transport fleet for an authentic sinking recreation :wink:

Will it have an insufficient number of lifeboats, too?

I think Bruce McCall’s renderings are better:
