35. Keep an Eye Out for Icebergs

Titanic II has many features that should make navigating any potential objects in the water much more manageable. However, the Titanic II is not any safer from icebergs due to climate change.

Increased ice melting in Greenland, where the Titanic’s very own infamous iceberg originated, has led to increased iceberg discharge. Iceberg migration into the North Atlantic, where the Titanic II will be traveling, has doubled from the long-term average of about 450 a year to about 1000 today.
