    Yes, but there was plenty of light on the Titanic. The lights didn't go out until the ship was minutes away from going away forever - sometime after 2 a.m. on 4/15/12.

    And, it was night time.......
    And it sank 2.5 hours after hitting the iceberg and the passengers were not immediately aware that it was gonna sink.
