What billionaires want, billionaires get, even if it's something that sounds unwise — like theTitanic II. Guests on the luxury liner, which will make its maiden voyage in 2016, will party like it's 1912, surrounded by many of the original's most famous features, such as the lavish staircase seen in crucial scenes of the "Titanic" movie.

Besides the modern engineering, there are two crucial differences: more than enough room in the lifeboats for everyone and the owner's refusal to be goaded into saying it's "unsinkable." "Anything will sink if you put a hole in it," said Clive Palmer, the Aussie billionaire behind the project. Click through the images above to see an artist's rendering of how the ship will look.
