Captain smith's quarters consisted of the famous bathroom then his bedroom plus a sitting room behind the navigation room next to the bridge.
Its quite interesting what personnel effects of his may be still lying in the silt of these rooms long after the furniture has disintegrated over time especially the desk in his bedroom who knows what personnel papers may have survived over time apart from his medals that have never been found..

unfortunately the bathtub is buried under debris, the roof of his quarters has collapsed. Although you can still see the corner!
