Majestic Second Cabin

‘On the Majestic, the World’s Largest Ship, will be found the highest development of Second Cabin accommodations. The conveniences on this magnificent steamer, the sumptuous public rooms, the broad, sunny decks, and the luxurious staterooms have inspired the enthusiastic praise of thousands of discriminating travelers.

‘Aside from the inevitable prestigue the Majestic has attained because she is the world’s largest ship - her speed, her famous cuisine, the expert quality of her service have all contributed to her international reputation.

‘The service in Second Cabin comes as a delightful surprise to the traveler. Years of training in the traditions of the White Star Line has developed a quiet, deft service that is extremely pleasant...’
