Were there any Second Class cabins or suites on the Titanic that had en suite facilities? I was thinking of the Second Class accommodations of the kind that 'Baron' Alfred Nourney originally had before upgrading himself to First Class.

As far as I could see, not one. A lot of people are shocked to find out that most of the 1st Class didn't either. They had to use public facilities. The health and comfort standards were very different in 1912. Today, they wouldn't even be legal.

Thanks. Yes, I do find it shocking that only 100 or so years ago standards of hygiene were so different. I grew up under modest circumstances but toilet hygiene was something that was vital part of one's daily activities.
I did 23 liveaboard trips (a week or longer) during my scuba diving days. Most guest cabins had ensuite facilities. If I was travelling alone, I paid extra for sole occupation so that I did not have to share the loo with a stranger. I know that sound paranoid, but there it is.

Ha, ha! I'm terrible in that respect. Whenever I watch movies or TV shows with people camping out etc, the first thing that pops to my mind is "what are they going to do to go to the loo and clean themselves afterwards?" etc. As for couples marooned in an island and then kissing etc, I think "Yuk! how can they stand each others' bad breath and unwashed smells?" Fortunately, I have been married to a woman for the past 40+ who thinks like me in that respect.
