The following extract from the plan, which shows A-deck, demonstrates the ship’s luxury. A verandah cafe, smoking room, music room, two galleries, an enormous lounge, reading and writing room, and drawing room overlooking the bow were all provided.

Clockwise, starting at the top left: one of Homeric’s A-deck corridors; the first class lounge, which was even larger than its counterpart onboard the larger Olympic; Homeric’s well-equipped gymnasium; stateroom B64; and the first class dining saloon. (Author’s Collection.)

Right: Stateroom B64 was located on the after port side of B-deck, near to the after first class entrance vestibule. Although it did not have a private bathroom, one of Homeric’s key features was the high number of single-berth staterooms. (Author’s Collection.)
