Hi, In Roberta's account of the voyage featured here on her biography page, she says that on the fatefull Sunday evening, she went to the music room to listen to the band. Does she mean the Lounge?

Thanks

I agree with Charles. My guess is that she dined in the Maids' and Valet's saloon on C deck. When dinner was over, she descended one deck to join the Countess and listened to the music that was being played in the D deck reception room.

Daniel.

Hello everyone! I'm new here. I have been longing to know if anyone has more information about Roberta Elizabeth Mary Maioni? More than her passenger profile on this site. Like who was the steward she was in love with? I would really appreciate any sort of feedback. Thank you.

Hello, Brittany,

I'm sure Bob Godfrey will jump in soon with his theories, as he's been narrowing down the list of suspects, but "Cissie" Maioni never revealed who the man was. I understand she slept with some sort of remembrance of him under her pillow each night, but I can't remember what it was. Someone else is bound to know. She took the secret to her grave. Isn't that romantic?

I think it was most likely a bedroom steward, but I do not know. I am just presuming. Thanks for you help.

I'm keeping quiet while I investigate the usual suspects, but I think it unlikely that the gentleman in question was a bedroom steward. Cissy's family maintained that he was a very young man and the bedroom stewards were of fairly mature years (possibly White Star policy). The keepsake was one of the star-shaped badges worn by the crew, on stewards' caps for instance.

I have doubts that true love could have blossomed in the space of a few days, especially since stewards had very little free time, and it's possible that the depth of their relationship may have 'grown in the telling' over the years. A poem about Titanic and a written account of her experience on the ship show that Cissy had a very lively imagination.

I know the name of the steward she was in love with. She met him before they sailed. He signed on in a hurry to be with her when he found out she was going to be sailing. They were in love and planned to be married eventually.}} If anyone is interested in this story let me know as I don't really want to post on here exactly "how" I know.
