Behold These Ultra-Creepy Interiors From the New 'Titanic'

Apparently colonizing neighboring planets and buying entire Hawaiian islands are just so passé for billionaires these days. Australian mining and real estate tycoon Clive Palmer has devised a genius plan to spend millions of dollars recreating a period-perfect Titanic—though without, presumably, the whole sinking into the icy depths of the Atlantic Ocean thing. The 2,600-passenger vessel will set sail on a transatlantic voyage—because, really, what could go wrong?—in 2016, providing voyagers an "authentic" 1912 experience, he says. Passengers will dine on original menu fare, crew members will be dressed as if they were from a century ago, and travelers will be split into three classes, though—no worries, guys—there will be enough lifeboats for everybody. He calls it "a tribute to the spirit of the men and women who worked on the original Titanic," and recently released the eerily accurate interior renderings for the ship. Find the iconic staircase redux above. Below: the (decidedly not state-of-the-art) gym, the dining hall, and a sunny recreation room.
