Continuity mistake: We see Mr Andrew walking through the 1st class cabins just after hitting the iceberg. He has 4 blueprint rolls under his arms. We then see him out on deck while discussing the situation with a few other men and the rolls have gone. As he gets to the office with Captain Smith he has the rolls again. (01:39:20)

Visible crew/equipment: When we see Jack moving the sofa for Rose to lie on, look in the window behind him to the right. You can see the cameraman's shadow moving with the camera. (01:21:25)

Continuity mistake: When we see Jack and Fabrizo at the front of the ship, in one shot we see the wind blowing Jack's hair and jacket. In the next shot it's not. (00:29:50)

Revealing mistake: You need to watch carefully for this as it's tricky to spot, but it is visible without the need of slow motion. When the steward calls for the gate to be unlocked to the third class passengers, the gate is already open and just pushed to a close. You can see the gate wobbling and separating around the lock area. Also as the gate is unlocked we see a key being pressed against the lock to unlock it. However the key doesn't actually engage with the lock, making it impossible to open it. (02:02:50)

Other mistake: In the scene where Rose is sitting in front of her vanity mirror after Jack saves her life, Cal bestows upon her the 16-carat Heart of the Ocean necklace. He drapes the necklace around her neck but never actually fastens it (the camera's on him the whole time), yet it stays in place even as Rose touches the diamond and runs her fingers across the chain. A 16-carat diamond would slide right off someone's neck if it were not properly fastened.

Cal Hockley: You're going to him? To be a whore to a gutter rat?!
Rose: I'd rather be his whore than your wife.

Question: Why were the women and children ordered to the lifeboats first and then the men? Why not just let anybody who could make it to the lifeboats get on?

Answer: Though not a requirement of maritime law, it was a matter of historical codes of chivalry that, in life threatening situations where limited numbers of life-saving resources were available, the lives of women and children were to be saved first. That was captain Smith's order the night the RMS Titanic sank. Some of the crew interpreted this to mean "women and children only." Thus, several of the lifeboats were launched only partially full, as men were prevented from occupying empty seats even when all nearby women and children had been boarded. The rescue efforts on the Titanic were further hampered by the fact that, initially, many of the passengers thought that the launching of lifeboats was unnecessary precaution, as the Titanic was thought unsinkable. The night air was cold. The lifeboats seemed uncomfortable. Thus, many preferred to stay on board the ship until reality of the magnitude of the situation became more evident and panic began to set in. Many of the men who survived in lifeboats, like White Star Line chairman Bruce Ismay, were branded cowards upon return to shore, even though many of them occupied seats that would have otherwise gone unused.

Answer: Furthermore, the "Code of Conduct" would put many boats in the water without anybody being able to row them.
