Majestic Tourist Third Cabin, 1929


  • ‘The accommodations are really delightful. Good, solid comfort in her Tourist Third Cabin and a coziness and friendliness more than compensate for any lack of the sumptuous.
  • ‘The rooms are attractive and cheerful. The berths are comfortable, the baths plentiful. Table linen, cutlery and furniture are the kind that people living in good homes find acceptable.
  • ‘…Each day of the passage is marked by its round of entertainments – music, dancing, card parties, lectures, amateur theatricals, organized deck sports, and for those who are leisurely inclined, there are plenty of quiet spots on sun drenched decks to absorb new stamina from the keen sea breezes…’

White Star issued a detailed description of ‘Tourist Third Cabin’, along with a variety of plans and illustrations of such accommodations aboard their Majestic, in March 1929.

  • ‘A liner combines uniquely outdoors and indoors – one, literally a step from the other. The lounge is equipped for every activity…for every mood and temperament. Jolly days are spent here over cards, and merry evenings with music and dancing.’
  • ‘Travel via Tourist Third Cabin is such a jolly idea. There is a feeling of gayety, of spontaneous, care-free joyousness about it that calls wholeheartedly to the youth that is essentially a part of each of us. There is no set formality attached to this modern mode of transatlantic travel…all that is necessary is the desire to “go some place.”’
