A century after the sinking of the Titanic, an exact replica of the ship will sail the seas.

An Australian professor and billionaire unveiled his plans today for the Titanic II.

It will be a full-scale recreation of the famous cruise liner and will take the same journey as the original. It does not set sail until 2016 but already people are paying big bucks to board.

The new ship will have a modern hospital on board as well as more than enough life-boats.

The creators believe this time around they will not come across many icebergs
