Titanic II to set sail in 2018

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - Time to test your courage. 

The Titanic II will sail in 2018 and will be an exact replica of the doomed ship from 1912.

As you know, the Titanic hit an iceberg and sunk on its maiden voyage. The true story was the basis of the 1997 blockbuster hit "Titanic."

The new Titanic is a touch larger than the original to meet current regulations. But, it will have the same first to third class tickets like the original.

But, unlike the original, it will have more lifeboats.

The ship is under construction in China, and it's first voyage will be from there to Dubai.

Blue Star lines says it's being flooded with ticket requests for the trip.
