Based on what you know of the preceding poster's personality, attitudes, style, personality in times of panic, courage/bravery and, yes, income level/class; would he have survived? If so, how would he have done so? Would he have died onboard? How would he have died - trying to survive or "dying like a gentleman"?

Go.

He would have managed (perhaps by affecting an snotty French accent) to talk his way on to the upper decks (or organized a team of husky males to break down one of the gates/doors that were "securing" the lower deck folks from their soon to be tomb), and secured a place on a life boat along with the other "gentlemen."

He's a kid (right?), so he'd be on a lifeboat and survive.

He seems pretty calm and not really prone to fits of panic, so I guess that he could be a good candidate for "dying like a gentleman". Then again, he might have tried to escape by jumping into the water or something.

Likely to get on a lifeboat after all women and children are off.

If a burial strikes my family as too practical, I'd go for either a viking funeral on one of the Great Lakes or to be sealed up in a tomb with my closest servants and bang-maids so they may wait on my every need in the afterlife.

From what I hear, he's a one percenter. That said, he'd probably be grouped into the wealthy gentlemen who can afford to spout stuff like "women and children first".

He's a "child" so he most likely escapes with his mother or something on a lifeboat.

Turns into an eagle and flies off the ship while "Sister Christian" by Night Ranger plays in the background.

French version: Turns into a snail and slowly scurries off the boat while La Marseillaise plays in the background.

Would make it into the boat, since he is underage.
