Is there any personal nurses or maids that boards the titanic handing a first class ticket.... because i'm making a story and it involves a personal maid named Lucy who boards the titanic as a first class passenger with her own first class room. Is it possible... Can she eat at first class dining room or walk around the first class areas?





<<<< Lucy is a character in my story. Lucy is 24 years old and the personal maid of Abigail Campbell, the main character and Kelly Campbell Abigail's 11 year old sister. She boarded the Titanic as a first class passenger provided by Abigail's parents.She has her own room. Abigail wants her to be comfortable and don't be shy because they treat her like their sister. >>>>>>> >

If a 1st Class passenger wanted to have personal servants (ie maid, valet, nurse) close to hand to perform their usual duties then those servants needed to travel 1st Class, but in almost every case this would be on a special reduced-price servant's ticket. That meant they could not use any of the public facilities and could eat only in the maids & valet's saloon. Their cabins would also be situated in 1st Class but would be the least desirable - small, inside locations (no natural light) and perhaps close to a noisy area like a toilet block or stairwell.

If your character has been provided with a full price 1st Class ticket then of course she would have full access to all facilities. For a servant that would be very unusual, but it's your story so if that's what you want then go for it.
