Majestic’s tourist third cabin passengers enjoyed their own spacious lounge. (Author’s collection.)
Majestic’s tourist third cabin accommodation underwent a number of changes during the years that she was in service. The deckhouse was divided into two smaller rooms, a lounge and a smoke room, and was altered to a large lounge. (Author's collection)
Another interesting point to note is that the lounge was originally aft on D-deck, but after the deck designations were altered - and moved down two decks - over the winter of 1928-29 it became B-deck. (Author’s collection.)
‘Here you pick up your napkin and settle down for a real meal - plentiful and well cooked. After hours in the sun and wind, how welcome is the profusion of the menu! The food is well served, too, by attentive waiters.’ (Author's collection.)
‘The polished dance floor is inviting.’ (Author’s collection.)
Majestic’s wide breadth enabled twelve staterooms to be placed alongside each other, spanning from one side of the ship to the other. This plan shows sections ‘S’ and ‘N’ on F-deck. There is a record of section ‘S’ - by then designated for third class passengers - being unused for several years when passenger numbers plunged in the early 1930s. It was brought back into operation once again in the summer of 1935, as Majestic’s passenger numbers rose to their highest level since 1930.
