Why are some 2nd class cabins more than first? I know that alot of the E-deck cabins were priced alot less than many 2nd class ( Yeah I know they were inside E-deck 1st class staterooms, but still)

Hello Luke,

What information you have looked at? - The advertised rate for 2nd Class was £13 per adult passenger, except for the outside rooms on D-deck where the rate was £13.10.0. - A number of 2nd Class passengers paid less than the advertised rate, because they had originally booked to sail on other ships.

The Minimum 1st Class fare was £26. That could be reduced to £23, if one booked not to take meals in the Dining Saloon. - The advertised rate for the inside single-berth rooms on E-deck that you refer to was £30. - While many 1st Class passengers paid less than the advertised rate, none [except those who held complimentary tickets] that I am aware of paid less than £23.

Are you perhaps looking at the overall cost of the tickets and not allowing for the number of passengers who travelled on a particular ticket?

Bob Godfrey once told me that an easy way to convert 1912 pounds in today US dollars is adding two noughts to the original number. For example, a 2nd class cabin costing £13 is more or less $1300 in US dollars nowadays.

P.S. Please note that this way is easier but not the more accurate.

Regards,
João

Hello everyone from Greece. Just a question: which was the best in terms of accomodation and price cabin in second class? Do we have pictures of it or do we know who might have occupied it? Thank you!
