Other mistake: After Jack and Rose are "done" in the cargo hold, they come out onto the bow of the ship laughing. Whilst the door they used to get onto the bow does lead to the cargo hold, inside you have to go down a flight of stairs and are greeted by a cast iron hydraulic door which can't be opened from inside the cargo hold, and would close automatically if the control wheel wasn't being held. The only way they would have been able to get out is by running back through the boiler rooms.
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: We see the plates sliding out of the holder and smashing as the ship starts to go vertical. Then 50 seconds later we see more plates falling from the same holder. However, the positions of the plates have changed and there are stacks of plates in sections that were empty. (02:30:10 - 02:31:00)
