Entertainments on the Titanic
What did passengers do in their pastime on the Titanic?
For the second class passengers they were provided with deck games such as shuffle board and ring toss, and board games like chess and backgammon. The nicest thing second class had was their library, which not only was used to read but also socialize. One of the second class survivors named Lawrence Beesley who said the library was her favorite thing on board and described the library as,"I can look back and see every detail...the beautifully furnished room, with lounges, armchairs, and small writing or card tables scattered around."
The third class passengers were left to find their own amusements, many played their own instruments like bagpipes and violins. Many of them played board games and the kids would jump rope all over the place. But almost everyone enjoyed spending time on deck.
