Titanic Replica Update

August 13, 2017

.

The “Unsinkable Titanic” which will be part of the the Romandisea Seven Star International Cultural Tourism Resort, is under construction in Daying County, Suining, Sichuan Province, China.

This is the world’s first life-sized remake of the original Titanic. However it’s not a real ship. It will be a hotel/tourist attraction on a river next to the resort.

It is not to be confused with Clive Palmer’s abandoned ‘Titanic II’ project, which would have been a fully functioning ship.

Below is a link to my article comparing the worlds biggest ocean liner in 1912, ‘RMS Titanic’, to the biggest modern class of cruise ship ‘Oasis of The Seas’.

Titanic Vs Oasis of The Seas

December 26, 2016

A few years back I wrote an article for this blog called “Titanic Vs Oasis of the Seas”.

Now I must admit that I did not spend weeks researching it. I put it together quite quickly. It was really just meant to be a bit of fun. Interestingly the article continues to attract more comments than anything else that I have ever written, including some quite negative ones, such as:

“This is stupid, how can you compare these two ships, they are Apples and Oranges”

“These two ships were built 100 year’s apart, of course they are not the same”

“The Titanic was a work of art, Oasis is just a floating shopping mall”

“This article is stupid”

Well, the commentators are fully entitled to their own opinions.  The two ships ARE completely different to each other and they WERE built almost 100 years apart. However silly it is to compare these two ships, I still did it!

It’s quite ironic that the article looks like it will be my  most viewed again, in 2016 as it was in 2015.  If I want a larger readership, I obviously need to write more silly stuff!

Titanic Hotel, Liverpool

March 21, 2015

Last month I had an excellent weekend break in Liverpool, UK.

I stayed at a newish hotel “30 James Street” which was the former offices of the ‘White Star Line’ (owners of the Titanic).

Below is a slide show.

I have now written a full review of my stay at the hotel, which unfortunately is not very favourable:
