I noticed that Olympic received a number of changes throughout her career. I'm curious as to what her Tourist-Third class dining room, lounge & smoke room would've looked like and the design for the rooms. Also, curious about the 3rd class' rebuild general room/lounge and smoke room on D Deck would've looked like and the design for that also
