What are people's thoughts on this project?

Personally I think it will become a circus over there

Well, considering they have hired a Hollywood production designer as the design expert, instead of any of the well-known experts we are all familiar with, I am sketpical...

Actually he's just that, the designer - not the historical expert. They have hired an expert on Titanic's design and fitting out to oversee the accuracy of the exterior, and the period rooms on the interior. (Sorry, I'm not at liberty to say who it is.)

If they can pull off a faithful replica then it will be a great thing for the Titanic community. I dont see how that will be though, seeing as they are reporting a replica Ballroom and Theatre will be included, something the Olympic Class never had. One thing I am completely opposed to is the "Sinking Experience." This was a tragedy that cost over 1500 people their lives. To trivialise that by making it an experience for a modern day theme park is over stepping the line in my opinion.

True, but we seem to sanitize the tragedy out of certain aspects of history as time goes on. I'm not disagreeing with you, just saying . . .

Only one? I would have thought they'd need at least two - one for the interior, and one for the exterior.
