In the 1933 refit the Tourist-Third and Second Class merged to create the Tourist Class, right?
I Was wondering what happened to the public rooms (Tourist Lounge, Tourist Dining Room) and the Second Class' public rooms during this refit, did Tourist class have 2 smoking rooms and 2 dining rooms?

The accommodation was merged from the end of 1931/start of 1932.

In essence, the original second class public rooms became tourist class and the original third class public rooms (which became tourist third in 1927-28) became tourist class as well. Naturally this involved some duplication.

In terms of the original second class dining room, it was divided in the 1927-28 refit into a second class and tourist third class saloon. By the end of Olympic's life, following the merged 'tourist class', the second class section was tourist and the tourist third section was third class. There were further decorative changes even after the 1932-33 refit.

Tourist accommodation even included former interchangeable staterooms on E-deck (1911 lettering) with private bathroom accommodation.

Also what happened to the former F Deck (1911 lettering) Third Class Dining Saloon?

I'm trying to find my 1933 third class plan for you.

However, there had already been changes made before 1933. In the forward third class saloon on F-deck, the starboard side was divided and became a stewards' mess. We need to recognise that third class passenger numbers were so low that they simply did not need this space.

Thank You!
