Mike to what Michael has advised I would add that the advertized fare was 13 pounds per berth. 13 pounds 10/- for the outside rooms on D-deck. I understand children were half fare.

Does anyone know how much in today's money a second class ticket cost? (You can give the amount in EU, or pounds, or USD.) The ones that were 13 pounds?

Thanks,
Laura

I always figured I would have fit in best with the second-class passengers. I sort of see them as just the plain ol' regular working class, like me.

But honestly, on my budget, I'd still likely have gotten stuck in steerage!

2nd Class was mainly patronised by the middle classes - professional people, civil servants, clergymen, owners of small businesses etc. It didn't cost a great deal more than 3rd - around £5, which was a month's wages for a skilled man. So there was a sprinkling of working class people travelling in '2nd Cabin', but most were more careful with their money and opted for 3rd Class, which on the Titanic was pretty good. There was no traditional steerage accommodation on the ship.
