Second class cabin
2nd class was not very bad at all. The second class cabins looked just like 1st class on a normal ship today. It wasn't as luxurious as 1st class however, but it had almost all the same features as 1st class (aside from the Turkish bath, pool, and 6 different restaurants). Like for instance, it had a library, women's room (for socialism), a dining room that could seat 440 passengers, cabins with the latest patterns (looks outdated today), and many more. Ruth Becker recalled her cabin looking like the best suite of the a hotel; there were enough cabins for 550 passengers and cost 20 pounds/$60 which is $690 today. There were 168 men, 93 women, and 24 children for a total of 285. At the sinking, they opened the barriers between 1st and 2nd class so all could get into the boats. In all, 14 men, 80 women, and 24 children survived for a total of 118. 167 died.
