3rd Class Two Berth Stateroom

Third class two-berth stateroom.

Third class two-berth stateroom.

There were 84 two-berth cabins for third class passengers on board Titanic.  However, most cabins in third class had bunk beds for between 4 and 6 people, a small amount of wardrobe space and a sink that delivered fresh water. 

Six occupant cabins housed families or same-sex passengers.  While this arrangement offered some privacy to the passengers, it meant they would still have shared their experience with strangers.  Heat and electrical lighting for the cabins was included in the cost of passage. 

There were over 1,000 third class passengers on board Titanic and large, clean, public toilets were provided for their use.  Intriguingly though, Titanic had only two bath tubs for all the third class passengers - one tub for men, and another for the women.

"The accommodation for third class passengers in these steamers is also of a very superior character, the public rooms being large, airy apartments, suitably furnished, and in excellent positions, and the same applies to the third-class staterooms and berths".
