After studying a lot of Titanic deck plans I realized that the majority of the first class cabins were not provided witch facilities such as bathrooms, a fact that aroused my curiosity... Were the first class passengers willing to share the bathrooms? Were there enough bathtubs for every first class passengers on board? Was it common for people to take a bath before dinner in order to be immaculate for such an important social occasion? If so, were the bathroom facilities quite busy before supper?

They didn't really have a lot of choice in the matter. En suite bathrooms for every cabin is so common today, we tend to take it for granted that it was always that way.

One problem: It wasn't.

Only the very best and most expensive cabins had them. As for everybody else, they had to use public bathrooms if they wanted to either bathe or deal with the ever persistant call of nature.
