How many passengers were on the Titanic when it sunk and how many survived?

There were 2,227 passengers aboard the ship called the Titanic when it sunk in 1912.

Of those, only 375 survived the icy waters off the coast of Newfoundland.

No ships since the Titanic have struck icebergs and gone down.

One of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history, one of the main reasons for the large number of fatalities was the fact that the Titanic did not have enough life boats for all the passengers on board.
