Provisions :

Since I've never been on any cruise stretching longer than from Norway to Germany, it seems to me that they brought along the best of the best for their passengers, like:

And all the splendor and luxury this ship contained! What about
- 28 First class Staterooms & Suites, decorating designs including:

- Gymnasium with rowing machines, a stationary bicycle and a electric horse.
- Swimming pool (exclusive on Titanic and Olympic).
- Squash court.
- Turkish bath.
- 2 Barber shops.
- Authentic Parisian Café with French waiters.
- 4 electric elevators (3 in 1st class, 1 in 2nd class).

If time and place allowed it, I could have continued to list all the other facilities, but this should be enough to give you an indication of the dimensions and luxury aboard the RMS Titanic.
