Question regarding the cabin numbers

hello

In the last broadcasting from Discovery about the Titanic, they said that they explored the suite of the Straus. I never know that the Straus had a cabine with private promenade. I thought that the two suites with private promenade were occupied by Ismay ( B-56-54-52) and Mrs Cardeza (B-51-53-55). My information was that the Straus had cabine C-55 + C-57. That is what I read in several books for example Triumph and Tragedy. Can you help me with this question?

They did not have a private promenade deck. - There were two Parlour Suites on B-deck with private promenade decks. Two on C-deck without. - C-55 was a Sitting Room. C-57 a Bedroom.

As advertised in a Fare Rate booklet: Parlour Suite C-55, 57 and 59: Comprising two Bedrooms, Sitting Room, Private Bath and Toilet. Each bedroom is fitted with a Wardrobe Room.

Hope that helps!

Erica,

As you can see from the above posts Mr & Mrs Straus were on C-deck. The starboard-side Parlour Suite was located directly below the B-deck Parlour Suite B-51/53/55, which you can see marked on the deck plans on this web-site. - On the opening page see under Resources: Deck plans. - Unfortunately C-deck has not been labelled. Which books with deck plans do you have access to?

In the List of Cabin Assignments: - See under People: Cabins; Cave List; Mr & Mrs Straus are listed for rooms C-55, 57 and 97. C-97 was the 2nd inner room across the fore-aft passageway and will likely have been for 1 of the servants, with the other being berthed elsewhere.

Hope that helps!
