We all dream about the day the next "unsinkable" ship sets sail onscreen and we get to watch another love story like Jack and Rose's.

Unfortunately that may not come true, but an exact-replica of the Titanic will set sail this year, and it's going to take a completely different route than the ill-fated vessel.

The RMS Titanic, the largest and most technologically advanced ship of its age, was on route from Southampton, England to New York City in 1912 with approximately 2,220 passengers and crew on board.

The ship that was strongly believed to be unsinkable collided into an iceberg on an April night, killing more than 1,500 people, making it one of the deadliest commercial peacetime maritime disasters in modern history.

As you probably remember from the movie that was inspired by the tragedy, the Titanic carried some of the wealthiest people in the world, as well as many emigrants from Western Europe looking to make a better life in the U.S.

Australian billionaire Clive Palmer first announced the project in a press conference in 2012 and expressed how he wanted to pay homage to the original crew and passengers. There weren't any news updates on the project after that, so many people were under the impression that the project had been cancelled.

Recently, Palmer announced that hundreds of people will have a chance to board the Titanic II, a near-exact replica of the doomed ocean liner, but the question is, how many people will be able to afford it, and what route will it take?
