1st Class Parlour Suite B38

First class parlour suite B38, Titanic, Belfast, March 1912.

With a passenger list that included the millionaires John Jacob Astor and Benjamin Guuggenheim, it is clear that only the very privileged could afford to travel First Class on Titanic.   The cost of a first class parlour suite was £870, one way.  It is estimated that this would equate to at least £32,000 / $50,000 in today’s currency. 

Fortunately however, children and dogs travelled at half fare in First Class.

"The finish and decoration of the first class staterooms are well in keeping with the excellence of the public rooms; the staterooms are also exceptionally large and beautifully furnished".
