This Project is a proposed ship, to rebuild Titanic's sister ship as a cruise ship. The Britannic was the third and final ship of the Olympic class liners. With the potential success of Titanic II, the drive to recreate her sister ships is getting stronger as well.
The new liner MS Britannic will feature all the main features that made the Olympic-class ships renowned for their luxury and interior splendor. The famous Grand Staircase, first-class dining room, luxury cabins, swimming bath (pool), Turkish bath, gymnasium, Cafe Parisien, squash court, and much more will make return onboard Britannic. Exquisite wood carvings will grace her passenger hallways, lounges, and cabins. Modern comforts like TVs, Wi-fi, internet, modern showering and bathroom facilities, modern enclosed lifeboats, GPS, radar, sonar will be present on the new ship to make her as modern and safe as possible. And there is so much more to be revealed as the project moves forward...

Replica Britannic will be the greatest of the replica Olympic class of ocean liners. Her sister ships will be Dennis Lamer's Olympic II and Clive Palmer's Titanic II. She will offer the latest amenities in modern cruising in a 20th century setting of an ocean liner. Her maiden voyage would be from Southampton, England to New York originally scheduled in May 1915 but do the WW1 Britannic was requisitioned as a hospital ship and then sank on November 21, 1916 after hitting a german mine and sinking in 55 minutes. A sad end and devastating blow to White Star Line's trio of Olympic class ships. The maiden voyage of Replica Britannic to America is meant as a tribute to the never attempted maiden voyage of the original Britannic. Afterwards she will undetake cruises from England, America to the Caribbean and worldwide destinations. The Olympic class liners will return to the 21st century.
