One word.... ‘Titanic’!

I don't think the cabin was watertight...

It was not. The ship did not have watertight bulkheads up to the main deck. The design flaw was corrected in the two sister ships. I believe the evidence suggests that the Titanic still would have sunk with water tight bulkheads but it would have taken many more hours.
