Passengers travelling first class:

The Titanic's first class passenger list was a who's who of the rich and prominent of the upper class in 1912. A single person berth in first class cost £30, the equivalent of £2,201 and up to £870 (£63,837 today) for a parlour suite and small private promenade deck. First class passengers enjoyed a number of amenities including a gymnasium, a squash court, a salt water swimming pool, electric and Turkish baths, a barbershop, kennels for first class dogs, elevators and both open and enclosed promenades.] First class passengers also travelled accompanied by personal staff—valets, maids, nurses for the children, chauffeurs and cooks.
