The Titanic, a wonderful, beautiful, big unsinkable way to America. On April 10, 1912 the miraculous boat was ready to sail. it was owned by the White Star Line and was built at Harland and Wolff Shipbuilding company. The Titanic was 882 ft. long and weighed 45,000 tons. It could hold 3200 passengers, but it only had enough lifeboats for about 1200 people. That did not matter because even God could not sink this ship. .
The price for a ticket varied greatly, the highest price being $870.00 for a first class ticket all the way down to $2.00 for a third class ticket. Most people were third class. This was really an amazing ship, too bad it went down on its maiden voyage. On the boat there were 28 staterooms and suites for the first class passengers (Titanic, p.2). Special staterooms located on decks B and C of the shop were designed with different motifs. The upper-class passengers had about eight different styles to choose from, so they could better enjoy the voyage (Titanic, p.2). Some of the suites had fireplaces that burned coal in the sitting room and gigantic beds in the bedroom. The most expensive suite had five rooms and a private bathroom, this truly was a luxury liner. Most upper class people had dinner at a huge restaurant on deck D (Titanic, p.2). It was 92 ft. wide and 114 ft. long. (Titanic, p.2) . The restaurant sat about 500 people (Titanic, p.2). There were a few other places to have dinner on the boat, even a real French restaurant called, "Cafe Parisien" (Titanic, p.2). During the day many rich people went to the Lounge at the Promenade deck, the walls were similar to the ones at Versailles Castle near Paris, it was truly magnificent. Next to this was the Georgian reading and writing room for women and next to that was the Smoking room for men. The Titanic had a sense of space and openness (Titanic, p.2).
Exactly 860 people worked onboard the Titanic. (RMS Deck Crew p.1). 340 of them worked below decks in the engine department as engineers, timers, boiler makers, grease men, window cleaners, or line keepers (RMS Engineering p.
