Hello everybody! I would like to learn if the B 52-54-56 suite on Titanic was identical to the one on Olympic. I guess the enclosed promenade was not there on Olympic but what about the interior design and/or decor? Thanks!!!
You are correct, the Olympic did not feature the private promenade and that is the main determining mark when looking at photos of the B-52 / B-51 sitting rooms, as there is a fireplace in the center of the back wall where on Titanic it would be a door.
As for decor styles, I am unsure of the cabins, there is a photo of Olympic B-41, which would be B-54 on Titanic, and its a variation of Empire, it is speculated the Parlor Suites on Titanic would have been decorated similarly.
Jenny, if I may, you might find it helpful if you browse through some of the older discussions in this folder for the answers you're looking for. Keep in mind also that some bits of information may also be lost to history.
Last week, Daniel Klistorner posted in reply to a similar question that you had about the styles of the cabins. His answer was "All will be revealed in due course when our book is released (see my signature for details)."
In light of this, I ask that you please do not post any other questions about the styles of the cabins and be patient until the book is released, which will be in April.

While it has been stated that info on the styles of the cabins will be available when Titanic: The Ship Magnificent is released, there is no outright ban on discussing and asking questions on suite decor, since the book hasn't come out yet.
The book contains very detailed explanations about the various period styles or non-period styles used on Titanic and goes into detail about what each cabin looked like - as such, I don't think it is necessary to go into this sort of detail here now as it will soon be available to everyone. For the time being though, C 96 was not decorated in a "period style".
This is my 1st post on Encyclopedia Titanica. I became interested in the Titanic in 1958 after seeing a movie on the sinking. I'm not even sure of the name of the movie, but have been hooked ever since. At the present, I'm decorating my guest room after cabin B57 with the elegant woodwork and 4 poster bed. I'm trying to get as much info as I can on this cabin and I have tried to get your book Titanic the ship Magnificent, but can't find it. Any suggestions?

You might want to check out http://titanic-theshipmagnificent.com/ for information on the book. There have been a lot of reasons for it, but the book has been delayed in publication several times. As it stands, it's now due to come out this April.
It's me again. As I said in my 1st post, I'm decorating my guest room after B57. Would anyone have a photo of what a couch looked liked in that cabin? Also was there only one bed and was it a single bed or a double? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks so much.
