INTERESTING FACTS


•    The cost of a first-class ticket on Titanic to New York was $2,500, approximately $57,200 today. The most expensive rooms were more than $103,000 in today’s currency.

•    A third-class ticket at Titanic cost $40, which is approximately $900 in today’s currency.   Up to 10 people resided in third-class rooms.  The rooms were divided by male and female often times splitting families. 

•    First-class passengers had the luxury of paying for their leisure while on board: a ticket to the swimming pool cost 25¢, while a ticket for the squash court (as well as the services of a professional player) cost 50¢.

•    Sixty chefs and chefs’ assistants worked in the Titanic’s five kitchens. They ranged from soup and roast cooks to pastry chefs and vegetable cooks. There was a kosher cook, too, to prepare the meals for the Jewish passengers.

•    Titanic had its own newspaper, the Atlantic Daily Bulletin, prepared aboard the ship. In addition to news articles and advertisements, it contained a daily menu, the latest stock prices, horse-racing results, and society gossip. 

•    There were only two bathtubs for the more than 700 third-class passengers aboard the Ship.

•    The forward part of the boat deck was promenade space for first-class passengers and the rear part for second-class passengers. People from these classes thus had the best chance of getting into a lifeboat simply because they could get to them quickly and easily.
