April 1912

Dimensions & Layout

a part of “April 1912”, a fictional universe by uniquest.

Second chances are not given to make things right, but are given to prove that we could be better even after we fall. I recreate the course of history not to ensure that Titanic completes its voyage, but to recreate the moments where we could have. {FULL}

Titanic is 882 feet 9 inches (269.06 m) long with a maximum breadth of 92 feet 6 inches (28.19 m). Her total height, measured from the base of the keel to the top of the bridge, is 104 feet (32 m). She measures 46,328 gross register tons and with a draught of 34 feet 7 inches (10.54 m), she displaced 52,310 tons. She also has approximately ten decks (excluding the top of the officers' quarters), eight of which is for passenger use. From top to bottom, the decks are:

The Boat Deck, on which the lifeboats are housed. The bridge and wheelhouse are at the forward end, in front of the captain's and officers' quarters. The bridge stands 8 feet (2.4 m) above the deck, extending out to either side so that the ship could be controlled while docking. The wheelhouse is directly behind and above the bridge. The entrance to the First Class Grand Staircase and gymnasium are located midships along with the raised roof of the First Class lounge, while at the rear of the deck is the roof of the First Class smoke room and the relatively modest Second Class entrance. The wood-covered deck is divided into four segregated promenades: for officers, First Class passengers, engineers, and Second Class passengers respectively. Lifeboats lines the side of the deck except in the First Class area, where there is a gap so that the view would not be spoiled.

A Deck, also called the Promenade Deck, extends along the entire 546 feet (166 m) length of the superstructure. It is reserved exclusively for First Class passengers and contained First Class cabins, the First Class lounge, smoke room, reading and writing rooms and Palm Court.

B Deck,the Bridge Deck, is the top weight-bearing deck and the uppermost level of the hull. More First Class passenger accommodation is located here with six palatial staterooms (cabins) featuring their own private promenades. On Titanic, the A La Carte Restaurant and the Café Parisien provids luxury dining facilities to First Class passengers. Both are run by subcontracted chefs and their staff; all were lost in the disaster. The Second Class smoking room and entrance hall are both located on this deck. The raised forecastle of the ship is forward of the Bridge Deck, accommodating Number 1 hatch (the main hatch through to the cargo holds), numerous pieces of machinery and the anchor housings. Aft of the Bridge Deck is the raised Poop Deck, 106 feet (32 m) long, used as a promenade by Third Class passengers. It was where many of Titanic's passengers and crew made their last stand as the ship sank. The forecastle and Poop Deck are separated from the Bridge Deck by well decks.

C Deck, the Shelter Deck, is the highest deck to run uninterrupted from stem to stern. It includes both well decks; the aft one serves as part of the Third Class promenade. Crew cabins are housed below the forecastle and Third Class public rooms are housed below the Poop Deck. In between is the majority of First Class cabins and the Second Class library.

D Deck, the Saloon Deck, is dominated by three large public rooms—the First Class Reception Room, the First Class Dining Saloon and the Second Class Dining Saloon. An open space is provided for Third Class passengers. First, Second and Third Class passengers have cabins on this deck, with berths for firemen located in the bow. It is the highest level reached by the ship's watertight bulkheads (though only by eight of the fifteen bulkheads).

E Deck, the Upper Deck, is predominantly used for passenger accommodation for all three classes plus berths for cooks, seamen, stewards and trimmers. Along its length runs a long passageway nicknamed Scotland Road, in reference to a famous street in Liverpool. Scotland Road is used by Third Class passengers and crew members.

F Deck, the Middle Deck, is the last complete deck and is mainly accommodated by Second and Third Class passengers and several departments of the crew. The Third Class dining saloon is located here as well as the swimming pool and Turkish bath.

G Deck, the Lower Deck, is the lowest complete deck that carries passengers, and has the lowest portholes, just above the waterline. The squash court is located along with the travelling post office where mail clerks sorted letters and parcels, so that they would be ready for delivery when the ship docked. Food is also stored here. The deck is interrupted at several points by orlop (partial) decks over the boiler, engine and turbine rooms.

The Orlop Decks and the Tank Top, are on the lowest level of the ship, below the waterline. The orlop decks are used as cargo spaces, while the Tank Top—the inner bottom of the ship's hull—provides the platform on which the ship's boilers, engines, turbines and electrical generators are housed. This area of the ship is occupied by the engine and boiler rooms, areas which passengers would not be permitted to see. They are connected with higher levels of the ship by flights of stairs; twin spiral stairways near the bow provided access up to D Deck.

I hope I can post this question here- but I am having a hard time looking at that diagram of the ship and where all the specific places are. I just basically want to know what areas 2nd class can go.
