3rd Class Dining Saloon

Titanic’s third class dining saloons.

Titanic’s third class dining saloons.

Titanic had two dining rooms for third class passengers, located on Middle or F-deck, and separated by a watertight bulkhead.  They had a joint capacity of 473, and could accommodate two sittings.  As the photograph suggests, the dining rooms were sparsely decorated, but enamelled white and brightened by sidelights.

Third class passengers enjoyed food that was simple but plentiful, with freshly baked bread and fruit available at every meal. The dinner served on Sunday April 14th, the ship’s last day afloat, consisted of rice soup, fresh bread, biscuits, roast beef with gravy, sweet corn, and boiled potatoes, followed by plum pudding, sweet sauce and fruit.

" … situated amidships on the middle deck, consisting of two saloons extending from ship’s side to ship’s side, well lighted with sidelights, and all finished enamel white; the chairs are of special design.  The position of this apartment – ie in the centre of the ship – illustrates the wonderful strides made in passenger comfort in modern times".
