I’m trying to build RMS Olympic in a game and I’m following by her late 20s to early 30s build. I have a deck plan reproduction of the first class accommodation but the second and third class aren’t even included. And I haven’t found any deck plans of the third-class accommodation, and I’ve found only one deck plan on Google for second class but it’s dated 1911 so I’d be better off using Titanic’s deck plan for 2nd class for that, but Titanic’s deck plans won’t match the changes and refits Olympic has in the 20s and 30s. As far as her 20s and 30s deck plans go that I can find they’re all ONLY first-class. I’ve seen some threads on this site share images of a portion of her 2nd class deck plan from 1914, but is a very small and very blurry image, so it’s not useful.

I did remember finding part of a blueprint where the dining Saloon had some kind of Dance floor aas well as an area where the ship's band would play.

This is from Mark Chirnside's article below. Looks like that change took place during the 1928 refit.
"This is a clear reference to the new B-deck suites. It noted that some of the suite rooms were twenty-two feet long, and that every single one was ‘equipped with a private bathroom and roomy wardrobes.’ The report also clarified when the first class dining saloon’s forward bulkhead was moved forward three frames (nine feet). It noted that the dining saloon had been extended and a dance floor fitted between December 22nd1928 and Olympic’s February 13th1929 Southampton departure. The report confirms that the extension of the first class dining saloon and the installation of the new B-deck suites (as well as some of the new private baths) took place during therefit at the turn of 1928-29.The redecoration of the Café Parisian, other minor changes to first class, the new tourist class public rooms, construction of new third class rooms forward on D-deck."

I looked around but didnt find any. I'm sure there out there but I ran into a lot of old broken links on the Olympic. They might be archived in the Wayback machine somewhere.

Does anyone know where one can find plans after the 1933 refit?
They are a good set of plans, I can tell you that, sadly I'm under an NDA sort of thing :(

I have her 1911 plans from the Shipbuilder magazine if you're interested

I also have an extract from Mark Chirnside's Book, "RMS Olympic: Titanic's Sister" (2015 second Edition, History Press)

And thanks to Steven, here's a good link

these are the 1933 General Arrangement Deckplans for Olympic, although a little less in quality, they hold up

I hope this helps Lisa!
