This table shows that Titanic was the biggest ship until the end of World War II. Titanic was larger than the highest buildings in the world of her time. She was also too large for many harbours of this period. So this vessel was really revolutionary in size, technique and comfort.
The expectations of the people to this vessel were obviously enormous and her maiden voyage had to proof her status as the number one ship in the world.
