Luxury Life On The Titanic Before It Settled On The Ocean Floor

Only the best for the highest of society

The passengers on the Titanic were from all walks of life and were divided by class. First, second, and third class was available, depending on how much you could shell out for a ticket. First-class would cost you in the thousands of dollars, and this was extremely pricey for 1912. Of course, the different classes meant different amenities, and the class divide was quite visible. One of the survivors of the sinking ship, Charlotte Drake Cardeza, who was a yachtswoman, a game hunter, and most importantly the daughter of a wealthy textile mogul, paid an enormous amount of $2,600 for her ticket, this is about $61,000.
