The Ship of Dreams


It’s April 1912, you are about to set foot on the world’s largest and most luxurious cruise liner, the White Star Line’s, TITANIC. You all board for different reasons with different and new opportunities waiting for you across the Atlantic in America. However you came across your ticket and whichever class you’re in, you all have the privilege of being aboard the Titanic, however, it won’t stay a privilege for in just four days the ship they deemed ‘Unsinkable’ will hit an iceberg and do just that, sink. Adventure, drama and possibly love wait for you on your journey across the Atlantic but what will fate have in store for you?


The Timeline


[center[April 10, 1912 From 9:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m., passengers board the ship. Then at noon, the Titanic leaves the dock for its maiden voyage. First stop is in Cherbourg, France, where the Titanic arrives at 6:30 p.m. and leaves at 8:10 p.m, heading to Queenstown, Ireland (now known as Cobh).

April 11, 1912 At 1:30 p.m., the Titanic leaves Queenstown and heads across the Atlantic for New York.

April 12-13, 1912 The Titanic continues on her journey as passengers enjoy life on the luxurious ship.

April 14, 1912 (9:20 p.m.) Captain Smith retires to his room.

April 14, 1912 (9:40 p.m.) The last of several warnings about icebergs is received in the wireless room. This warning never makes it to the bridge.

April 14, 1912 (11:40 p.m.) The lookouts spot an iceberg directly in the path of the Titanic. First Officer Murdoch orders a hard starboard (left) turn, but the Titanic's right side still scrapes the iceberg. Only 37 seconds passed between the sighting of the iceberg and hitting it.

The Ship


The Titanic's design and construction featured luxury and opulence. There was a telephone system, a lending library and a large barber shop on the ship. The first-class section had a swimming pool, a gymnasium, squash court, Turkish bath, electric bath and a Veranda Cafe. First-class common rooms were adorned with ornate wood panelling, expensive furniture and other decorations while the third class general room had pine panelling and sturdy teak furniture. The Café Parisian offered cuisine for the first-class passengers, with a sunlit veranda fitted with trellis decorations. The ship incorporated technologically advanced features for the period, including three electric lifts in first class and one in second class. She also had an extensive electrical system powered by steam-driven generators, ship-wide wiring for electric lights and two Marconi radios. One 5,000-watt set was manned by two Marconi Company operators working in shifts sending and receiving passenger messages.

In the first-class lounge, there was a wonderful, wrought-iron and glass dome. Under the dome, was the Grand Staircase, where first-class passengers usually met for dinner. The natural light from the dome shone down on the beautiful, oak wall paneling and the oak railings of the staircase. On the wall, at the top landing of the staircase, were two figures, symbolizing honor and glory, surrounding a small clock.


Image


The Lounge for first-class was located amidships on Titanic’s Promenade Deck. Unlike the Reading Room forward or the Smoking Room aft, the Lounge was designed for use by both men and women from morning till the room closed at 11:30 in the evening. Four large bays were fitted with oversized windows to provide panoramic views of the sea. Inspired by the style of Louis V, many of the details, such as the sconces and doorknobs were inspired by the Palace of Versailles. The room was given a British accent, however, by addition of oak paneling with delicate carvings in natural wood tones--rather than being gilded as was the fashion on the continent. A decorative but non-functioning marble fireplace with an elaborate oak and mirrored over mantle anchored the forward end of the room.

The first class passengers would certainly dine in style. Their dining room was 114 foot long and spanned the full width of the ship. Seating 532 passengers at once, it was the largest dining room ever seen on a ship. The room was decorated in attractive Jacobean style, and was painted in peanut white. The decoration had been the result of painstaking research. The designs were based on Hatton Hall and some very fine houses in Hatfield, England. The furniture (chairs and tables) were oak and designed to add luxury and comfort at all times. In those days dinner was considered a very important part of a voyage.

Towards the back of the Promenade Deck was situated this very fine room. The walls of the first class Smoking Room were panelled in mahogany carved in the Georgian style and were inlaid with mother of pearl. Above the centerpiece fireplace was a painting by Norman Wilkinson called the "Approach to the New World."
Those who required an after dinner drink could find exactly what they wanted in the well stocked bar. Others enjoyed walking around the room looking at the painted glass windows depicting many different ports from around the world, and other White Star Line ships. On the portside of the room was a small Verandah area, which led to the Palm Court areas (30ft by 25ft) overlooking the aft Promenade Deck.


Image


Titanic provided 39 private suites: 30 on the Bridge Deck and 9 on the Shelter Deck. The suites included bedrooms with private toilet facilities. All had up to five different rooms: 2 bedrooms, 2 wardrobe rooms and a bathroom.First class accommodation also held 350 cheaper standard cabins with single beds.The expensive and exclusive staterooms boasted excellent fittings. Each were decorated in different periodic styles including Louis XVI, Louis XV, Georgian and Queen Anne.


Image


Second class accommodation was provided in either two or four berth rooms. A maximum of 550 passengers could be accommodated. The rooms were fitted in enamel white with mahogany furniture.The Staterooms of the second class were very similar to the standard cabins of the First Class. However when comparing the size of room, staterooms and galleys etc. it must be remembered that the Titanic and Olympic set entirely new standards of transatlantic travel. The second class or middle class would have been treated in exactly the same way as the first class passengers would have been on other contemperary shipping lines.


Image


After dinner, the gentlemen of the second class could retreat from the Dining Room to their Smoking Room. This room was decorated in Louis XVI style and it had oak panelling with daido rails. Linoleum tiles were specially designed for the room and were unique to the ship. After dinner, travelling second class women would part company from their partners and often sought in the Library. This was the equivalent of the First Class Reading and Writing Room. The room was excellently appointed filled with mahogany furniture. A large book case was situated at the forward end opposite the bulkhead. Large windows had silk curtains hanging. The rich fabric of the Wilton carpet gave a snug feel to the room.The Dining Room was 71 foot long and it could seat 2394 people at one sitting. The room had oak panels with pivoted sidelights which provided a great elegance dining room. There was a piano in the room to entertain diners. All the furniture was mahogany with crimson upholstery.


Image


The General Room was the heart of the Steerage, third class community. It was the main meeting room. It was panelled in pine and finished in enamel white with teak furniture. The Smoke Room was panelled and furnished in oak with teak furniture and was very comfortable. It was clear from outset that the White Star Line had given much consideration for the third class passengers, many of whom would be crossing the Atlantic to start new lives away from their home country left behind. The White Star Line wanted them to enjoy the voyage as a good start to their "new life."


Image


There were over 1000 third class passengers on the Titanic. Their accommodation was much more modest than the other two classes. The rooms comprised mainly of two to six berth rooms. There were only 84 two-berth cabins onboard. The size of the rooms compared to first and second class reflected the class attitudes of the age. The first class Turkish Bath was larger than the third class galley. A thousand passengers would rely on the galley but only a handful would have used the Turkish Bath. The designers wanted to change the attitudes towards third class travel. The third class cabins were not dormatory like rooms but individual closed cabins, thus adding privacy to the passengers, but they would still have shared their experience with strangers.
