=== Condition in Wreck ===
There has been relatively little exploration of the First-Class staterooms on ''Titanic'' since her discovery. Only the staterooms in the bow section forward of the Grand Staircase survive in an appreciable condition. Because the cabins were all framed in pine and teak, many of the walls between staterooms have deteriorated, leaving a warren of tangled electrical wiring, deep silt and wreckage treacherous to ROVs. James Cameron's 2001 ''Ghosts of the Abyss'' expedition focused on the cabins of some of the most famous ''Titanic'' passengers, including Henry S. Harper, Molly Brown and Edith Russell. Outstanding images of the marble Adam-style fireplace in Mrs. Cardeza's Deluxe Suite sitting room and the gilded Bruce Ismay's Louis Quinze fireplace of sitting room were produced. Ismay's Private Promenade was also discovered, with the remnants of the distinctive half-timber panelling seen for the first time since the sinking.

The more common remains that delineate staterooms include desks and other hardwood furniture, collapsed bunks, silver-plated lamps, doors, brass bed frames, and even upright cabinets with their contents still in place on the shelves. In the debris field are strewn hundreds of items from First-Class staterooms that poured out of the ship during the break-up.[[File:Tumblr_n7h4cmaGUA1rnh1c7o1_1280.jpg|thumb|A Deck single berth cabin used for single men]]

* On [[B Deck]] there were 101 Staterooms all styled in different periods and labeled from B-1 to B-102 with no B-13. B-51 and B-52 were counted as staterooms even though they were only sitting rooms and had no beds.

[[Cabins B-52/54/56|The even numbered cabins]] were used by [[Bruce Ismay]] (the same suite that Cal Hockley, Rose and Ruth Dewitt-Bukater's characters inhabited in Cameron's film; see popular culture below) while [[Cabins B-51/53/55|the odd numbered cabins]] were booked by the Cardeza family. Based on photos of the {{RMS|Olympic}}, B-52 was styled in the Louis 16th style. B-56 was styled in Harland & Wolfe "A".
