The first class cabins and staterooms were located over five decks, generally amidships, where the ship’s motion would be least felt.

Accommodation in first class was decorated in a variety of styles such as Adams, Chippendale and French ‘Empire.

Staterooms were expensive and cost $4,350,one hundred years later the 2012 equivalent would be around $100,000 even a basic 1st class cabin would have cost $150,thats $1,724 in today money, needless to say passengers travelling in first class would have been rich and prominent figures these included multimillionaire Colonel John Jacob Astor IV and his 18-year-old pregnant wife Madeleine, industrialist magnate and millionaire Benjamin Guggenheim, Macy’s department store owner and member of the United States House of Representatives, Isidor Straus and his wife Ida and the famous Unsinkable Molly Brown (Margaret Brown).

staterooms came equipped with many modern electrical appliances, such as telephones, heaters, steward call bells, table fans and electrical blowers and were richly decorated in different ornate period styles, including Louis XVI, Louis XV, Georgian and Queen Anne.
