(SundayStills: History) 1st class comfort

One of the first-class cabin beds from historic cruise liner TITANIC displayed at Liverpool maritime museum

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.  

No other ship in the history of ocean travel has demanded as much interest as the Titanic

The Sinking of the Titanic was on April 15, 1912,

The Titanic’s total capacity was 3547 passengers + crew.

Sadly, the ship was loaded with only enough lifeboats to hold half of the Titanic passengers. There were 20 of them with a total capacity of 1178 people

The largest percentage of survivors came from first class passengers.

Captain Smith had made plans to retire after seeing the Titanic safely across the Atlantic on her maiden voyage

The Titanic’s weight fully loaded was 46,328 tons.

 The top speed of the Titanic was 23 knots.

  1. Fascinating. I’ve loved stories of the Titanic long before the movie. Its fascinated me for years. We even sang a song in Girl Scouts… They built the ship Titanic, to sail the ocean blue. They thought they built a ship where the water wouldn’t come thru. But the good Lord raised his hand and said this ship must never land & it was sad when the great ship went down down down… to the bottom of the sea. Husbands and wives & children lost their lives, it was sad when the great ship went down, down down.

    Boy, I remembered that 40 years later and I can’t remember to buy bread when I go to the store???

  2. I know – sad story and ending. I haven’t seen a Titanic displlay or museum yet. The coloring on the wall and the hue makes the bed appear very old.
