Titanic Images - The Shipbuilder - 6: Passenger Accommodation

Full advantage has been taken of the great size of the Olympic and Titanic to provide passenger accommodation of unrivalled extent and magnificence. As will be seen from the deck plans reproduced in Plates III., IV. and V., the arrangement has been most carefully considered from all points of view, and the excellent result achieved defies improvement.

About 2,440 passengers can be accommodated in each ship, so that, with her crew of about 860, she carries a grand total of 3,300 persons. A summary of the number of passengers of each class and the rooms provided on the various decks is given in Table VI.

The general scheme of décoration is similar in both ships ; so that, although our illustrations in this section for the most part represent the passenger accommodation of the Olympic, they may also be taken as indicating the appearance of the public rooms, staterooms, etc., of the Titanic when that vessel is completed.
