    Global warming...watch out for more icebergs. lol

    If he can build the ship to match the original as much as possible I can see many people taking the cruise. Question: Will the movie 'Titanic' be shown?

    Hmmm, I don't think I would tempt fate. I may be wrong, but haven't most boats after the original, that were named the Titanic, had bad things happen to them? I am not a fan of cruises anyway :).

    Oh, why?
    I keep wishing one of these billionaires would launch a free missing persons television network, available in all homes.
