Titanic’s Tragic Tale and Why a Luxurious Titanic II Is in the Works

Titanic’s demise is history that will never be forgotten, and now there are plans to add a happier ending to a disaster that saw hundreds perish at sea over 100 years ago.

Titanic’s Construction Begins

Titanic was built to be impressive on every front in the growing competitive cruise liner market of the era.

It was March 31, 1909, when the construction of Titanic, one of the most famous ships in history, officially began in Belfast, Ireland’s Harland & Wolff shipyard.

The head of the drafting department of Harland and Wolff, naval architect James Andrews, was the individual who laid the first keel plate, convinced that they were about to build an “unsinkable” ship.

Part of the White Star Lne, Titanic was manufactured side-by-side with its sister ship, Olympic, by over 3,000 workers.
