The RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that famously sunk in April 15, 1912 after striking an iceberg. At the time of its sinking, the Titanic was the largest, most luxurious ship afloat and had attracted the rich and famous of North America and the UK.
Overview and layoutEdit
The Titanic was 882 feet 9 inches long and had over ten decks. The top decks were destined for first class and included some of the ship's most famous locations such as the Grand Staircase, the Smoking Room or the First Class Reception Room and the Café Parisian. The first class also enjoyed large promenades and a Turkish bath.
The Second and Third Class were more simple and their accommodations were at the stern and bottom of the ship. The E Deck had the Scotland Road, a large hallway from the bow to the stern of the ship, allowing the crew a more flexible access to the ship.
Technologically the ship was imbued with the most advanced steam engines powered by giant furnaces and was tied to the outside world by the wireless, the most advanced form of communication in the early 20th century.
