1st Class Swimming Pool

First class swimming bath.

First class swimming bath.

Titanic was considered the most luxurious ocean liner ever built at the time and her heated swimming pool was only the second of its kind anywhere on the ocean.  The first swimming pool ever to go to sea had been installed on Titanic’s sister ship, Olympic, the previous year.

"Then the morning plunge in the great swimming bath, where the ceaseless ripple of the tepid sea water was almost the only indication that somewhere in the distance 72,000 horses in the guise of steam engines fretted and strained under the skilful guidance of the engineers".
