Titanic's First Class Staterooms Return to Diagram
Titanic's first class cabins were forward and amidships away from the noise and vibration from the ships engines. (Denoted in the color peach below) There were more first class cabins (370) than any other class of cabins on the ship.
I was asked by a young Titanic enthusiast (9 year old) if that was a computer monitor on the desk in the photo. (left of arrow) I told her it would be another 90 years or so after this photo was taken before they showed up. (It's actually a vanity mirror)
The parlor suites came with wardrobe rooms, private baths, sitting rooms, fireplaces, and in some cases, private promenades. All first-class accommodations were equipped with telephones, heaters, special gimbal lamps that were designed not to tip over in choppy seas, table fans, and call bells for summoning the steward. (But no flat screen TV's I'm afraid)
The price of this suite on Titanic was £870 or $4,350; that equates to $100,000 in 2015. That price included use of all the first class amenities; the smoking room, the lounge, the gymnasium, Turkish baths, pool, the Veranda Café , the squash court, the reading and writing room and all meals. Dining in the A la Carte Restaurant and the Parisian Café were an additional charge as they were privately owned. Room service was also available in first class if you chose to eat in your stateroom.
