Tour Inside Titanic - 1912

Titanic was a passenger liner that struck an iceberg on her maiden voyage from Southampton, England, to New York City, and sank on 15 April 1912, resulting in the deaths of 1,517 people in one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history.

The interior of the R.M.S. Titanic was lavish. It offered every luxury that could be enjoyed in 1912. After the mechanics of the ship, the interior was the most detailed. Hand carved oak, teak and maple woodwork was everywhere. Only the most lavish furniture was used. The bathrooms were finished in the most modern style of the times complete with showers, bath tubs and double sinks. There was even flushing toilets on board the ship. Huge dinning rooms sat several hundred and after a good meal passengers could retire to one of the several smoking lounges for drinks and cards.

There was a complete, up-to-date gymnasium for workouts and even a regulation sized indoor swimming pool. There were clothing shops, a barbershop and a beauty salon. Racketball courses were on deck along with areas for other games. The Titanic was the most luxurious ocean liner ever built at the time. The following are photos taken of the ship's interior right after it was built and shortly before it sailed. Step back in time and view inside the Titanic.
