Baltic Plan of Accommodation 1928

In July 1928, the White Star Line published an unusual plan of Baltic’s cabin class accommodation, which highlighted the ship’s wonders.
White Star’s accommodation plan had a rather plain cover. (Author’s collection.)
The spacious boat deck. (Author's Collection)
The promenade deck, whose windows bore such a close resemblance to those in the officers’ quarters onboard Olympic (which were also white-painted in her later years). (Author's Collection)
The cabin class drawing room. (Author's Collection)
The cabin class smoke room. (Author's Collection)
Baltic’s drawing room was situated at the forward starboard corner of the deckhouse on B-deck (also known as the ‘upper promenade deck’). A number of cabin class suite rooms with their own private bathroom facilities can also be seen. (Author’s collection.)
One of the spacious cabin class twin staterooms, which also had an upper berth (seen at the top right). It was equipped with reading lamps and plenty of storage space. (Author’s collection.)
Another spacious cabin class stateroom, which enjoyed the luxury of a double bed. A notable comfort by contemporary standards, it seems rather narrow for a double bed today. (Author’s collection.)
Although creased, the impressive composition of the photo shows some interesting details from the cabin class dining saloon: ‘In the centre of this room is provided a dancing square of polished parquet under a stained glass dome two decks high, for the use of passengers in inclement weather. The saloon is equipped with small tables seating from two to eight persons’ . The scene at the left, on the forward end of the raised ceiling, is entitled Washington. (Author’s collection.)
The cabin class dining saloon. Following experience with Celtic, the saloon onboard Cedric was enlarged slightly, but Baltic’s had to be even larger again in order to cope with the higher number of first class (later cabin) passengers. (Author’s collection.)
