Sailing 3rd class on SS Aragon and SS Avon

I just found out that some of the Danish passengers, prior to boarding Titanic, had been sailing with Royal Mail Steam Packet Lines ships Aragon and Avon between Southampton and Buenos Aires. I'm trying to find out how the 3rd class aboard these ships compared to the same class on Titanic. Was it a tremendous upgrade? Or were the RMSPL ships also quite comfortable for steerage? And even better, has anyone come across any travel descriptions of life aboard these ships?
