1st Class Dining Saloon

First class dining saloon.First class dining saloon.

Over 500 people could dine in luxury in this immense Jacobean-style dining room, located on D-deck between the second and third funnels.  Its placement there was no accident.  This location gave first class diners the smoothest ride available onboard Titanic.

The floor of the Dining Saloon was laid with linoleum tiles intricately patterned to resemble a Persian carpet.  The small tables made for easy conversation between tablemates, an activity no doubt assisted by the superb food, fine wine and comfortable armchairs.

"This immense room has been decorated in a style peculiarly English – that, in fact, which was evolved by the eminent architects of early Jacobean times (early 1600s)…. The furniture of oak is designed to harmonise with its surroundings".
