Titanic Interior‎: 20 Amazing Vintage Photos That Show Suites and Staterooms of the‎ First Class of the RMS Titanic

Reflecting the White Star Line’s reputation for superior comfort and luxury, the RMS Titanic had extensive facilities for first-class passengers which were widely regarded as the finest of her time. In contrast to her French and German competitors, whose interiors were extravagantly decorated and heavily adorned, the Titanic emphasized comfort and subdued elegance more in the style of a British country manor or luxury hotel.

Titanic’s enormous size enabled her to feature unusually large rooms, all equipped with the latest technologies for comfort, hygiene, and convenience. Staterooms and public spaces recreated historic styles with a painstaking attention to detail and accuracy. There was a wide range of recreational and sporting facilities in addition which provided ample opportunity for amusement during a voyage.

The bulk of first-class facilities and accommodation was located on the upper decks within the superstructure of the Titanic, where the vibrations and noise of the engines were at their lowest. The entirety of A-Deck was devoted to first-class recreational space and accommodation, along with most of B and C Decks. First-class facilities were located on every level down to F-Deck, which means that first-class passengers enjoyed the most space by far of any of the three classes on the ship.

Although closely similar to her sister ship and predecessor the RMS Olympic, Titanic featured additional first-class staterooms, augmented public rooms, and myriad minor improvements to enhance her luxury and comfort.

The Titanic and her sister Olympic offered the finest and most luxurious first-class accommodations to be found on any contemporary ocean liner. The cheapest first-class fare could be had for £23 (equivalent to £2,600 in 2020), without meals. A suite could range in price from £400 (£46,000 in 2020) to £870 (£100,000 in 2020) for a “Deluxe” Parlor Suite at the height of the traveling season.
