Audio problem: In the poker scene, when Jack picks up a card from the deck, it makes a very loud and long noise. Much louder and longer than the movement of the card against the deck would justify. (00:23:15)

Factual error: During the sinking scene, Murdoch looks down the crew stairs on the starboard side, where water is entering from an open door on deck A. That door should have faced outward (starboard side) otherwise the door would have lead into cabin A7 and I don't think the occupant would have enjoyed that.

Factual error: In the seen after the preacher finishes his dialogue; it shows the woman floating in the first class lounge with which is completely under water. But about a minute or so later after it shows the maid slide down the deck, the part of lounge that was supposed to be flooded is still above water. The lounge in just a bit forward of the 3rd funnel on A Deck which wasn't submerged until after the break up in the film. The light fixture is one deck down aft of the compass tower between funnel 2 and 3.

Factual error: When Rose's mother is having tea, all the women are wearing gloves as they have tea. This would never have happened as Edwardian ladies always removed their gloves and placed them in their laps under their napkins when they sat at a table, before eating or drinking anything so as not to soil them.

Continuity mistake: The first chimney fell in the scene where Fabrizio died, but later when showing the Titanic sinking, the uppermost part of the chimney is visible, intact. (02:40:30 - 02:41:15)
