This is a question for the mariners here. The Californian had accommodations to carry 47 passengers. But as reported she carried no passengers on her trip during the April 15th 1912 time period. If a ship like her no passengers would the crew get to utilize those spaces? Sort of a like a little upgrade for the crossing or was that not allowed. Seems to me if the Captain threw them a bone like that when possible he would have a happier more productive crew. Or did company rules forbid that? Just curious.
