The Grand Staircase is one of the many defining characteristics of the Titanic that made her the most luxurious liner of her day.  To travel in first class, it would cost you over $4000, which in today's dollars would be around $50,000. Second class on the Titanic was as luxurious as first class on most other ships of the day, and third class was better than the immigrants had ever traveled.  She was a floating palace, one that has not be duplicated to this day.  Below you will find information on the  construction and you will find several photos of the ship.
