The promenade deck was located directly below the top deck. This deck was made for general use, but there were four cabins that featured private 50-foot promenade decks of their own. These cabins were called Parole Suites and were the most expensive rooms on the ship. The priciest of these cost over $4,000 in 1912, which is about $100,000 today.

This was probably one of the 350 first-class standard single bed cabins. There were also 39 private suites available on the ship, and each had a private bathroom in addition to the bedroom. Some private suites even included wardrobe rooms and were decorated in the luxurious style of the French monarchy.

The communications room on the ship was run by the Marconi Company. The operators aboard Titanic were actually the employees of the company and not the crewmembers of the ship.
