What Did the Titanic Really Look Like on the Inside?

Everything in first class, from the light fixtures to the carpets to the chairs was of the utmost quality. Not just the private spaces, but the public spaces were truly beautiful to behold.

It was no surprise then that a first class ticket on the Titanic was a whopping $2,560 in 1912, equivalent to more than $60,000 in today’s money!
