Today marked the first full day at sea so plenty of time allotted itself for exploration and discovery of the sights and sounds aboard ship. Of course, if relaxation was in order, no problem! Stewards were at the passengers beck and call and lounge chairs lined the long decks with 'sitting' invitations. For the explorers, Titanic was a giant labyrinth being as long as 4 city blocks and 10 decks high. So many places to get completely lost!
The day after the Titanic sets sail on her maiden voyage, the Guardian's leader writers marveled at how far removed such first class travel was from 'old-fashioned people's ideas of a sea voyage'. Titanic was fitted-out with luxurious lounges, squash courts, top restaurants and concert halls.

All seems fine as the Titanic glides through the water. Some passengers are enjoying quiet time in the library, while others are working out at the gymnasium. Of course, many have already joined fellow passengers in the first class dining salon! Disaster looms totally unsuspected. . .
