Am I being overly cynical in thinking that Titanic 2 is about as likely to take the open seas, as the original Titanic is?

Well, cynism or not, I somehow would feel uneasy booking a cruise on that ship. Apart from the fact that it should be ridiculously expensive, it feels like you're asking for history to repeat itself, as if you were boarding an airship called the Hindenburg II or were about to supervise the construction of a new Soviet-type nuclear reactor in Chernobyl.

I would be straight onboard, with my dry suit and plenty of gas to dive the virgin wreck...think of all of those unclaimed port holes to get !
