My knowledge on these ships is limited, in that all I really know about them is that Berengaria went to Cunard, Majestic went to White Star, and Leviathan went to USL, all in reparations for WWI from Germany.

Now, what happened to the three of them? I know that Majestic went to the British Navy to become the... Caledonia I think, and became a training ship. Aside from that, I don't know what happened to the others.

My real question is, where did the fittings of each liner go? Are they scattered about such as Olympic's and Mauretania's, or were they destroyed?

In the case of the Leviathan: both.

here's 2 chairs that survived. I picked them up a couple of years ago from different auctions a few months apart. the original upholstery has been replaced or covered over but enough survives to be able to identify that one has pink flowers on a pale background and the other was a red and yellow patterned velvet. Both types of upholstery seem different to that used on the Vaterland so presumably they came from the Berengaria or Majestic or perhaps one from each.I will post the other picture below this post.

There are some good books on these ships:
Berengaria-Cunard's Happy Ship. By Les Streater
R.M.S. Majestic-The Magic Stick. By Mark Chirnside. (Not yet published)
Classic Ocean Liners Volume 1: Berengaria, Leviathan, & Majestic. By Frank Braynard. (Out of print)
The Imperator Class liners were some of the most impressive ever to put to sea, in my humble opinion.
