1st Class Private Promenade

First class private promenade, Titanic, Belfast, March 1912.

As a result of experience gained with her sister ship, Olympic, a number of improvements were made to Titanic’s first class accommodation. The state rooms were brought out flush with the outside of the superstructure, and the rooms themselves were much larger. The sitting rooms of some of the suites on this deck were 15x15 feet.

Very wealthy passengers paying premium fares for exclusive parlour suites had access to two private promenades, or walkways, one on either side of the vessel. These promenades, each about 50 feet long, were decorated in a half-timbered Tudor style.
