They could guarantee a week’s crossing in spectacular conditions. The first class accommodations included elaborate suites decorated in a variety of styles. First-class passengers could also enjoy a gymnasium, swimming pool, squash racket courts and Turkish bath. Second class accommodations on Titanic were better than first class on many other ships.

The Titanic Memorial Cruise follows the same course and set to sails with the same number of passengers which is 1,309 and came contact with the site where the lost Titanic is wrecked.
