Titanic’s first-class cabins and suites were spread over five decks and located amidships where the Ship’s motion through the waves would be least felt, and the main staircase and elevators were immediately adjacent for convenience. The accommodations ranged from single-berth cabins to parlor suites which could accommodate guests from 689 to 735 first-class passengers.
