There must have been 'nosebleed' cabins in first class, down on D deck,as plain and simple as any second class cabin. Such might be occupied by those willing to suffer cramped conditions, but interested in enjoying 1st class public spaces. Any votes as to the worst first class cabins?

There were really small cabins in 3rd class, but nothing so drastic in first. The smallest cabins in 1st would have been cabins like B3, 4, 9, 10, 50, the servants' cabin for the large B deck suites, C42, 46 and the smaller inboard E deck cabins.

Hello!!! Were these little cabins considered staterooms? Were they luxurious enough for any first class passenger or just a last minute solution for passengers who booked too late or when the ship was totally booked? Who would otherwise pick such small cabins? In addition, I think the boat deck cabins named with letters were rather small, too.Greetings to all ...

Hi George,

The Boat Deck cabins were considered staterooms and were not small or spartan in any sense and were as fully furnished as any single berth First Class cabin, save for Cabin X and Cabin Y which only had the bare essentials.

Cabins T, U, and Z were equally as large as the single berth A Deck cabins below and were among the pricer cabins as Blackwell paid £35 for Cabin T when the standard "bare bones" First Class fare was £26.


Best Regards,

Brian

George, the word 'stateroom' doesn't have any special significance. There are many documents of the time in which even 3rd Class cabins are referred to as staterooms.

Most dictionaries describe both a 'stateroom' and a 'cabin' as being something like "A private room on a ship or train that is used for living accommodations" (Merriam-Webster).

Hope this helps.

I've Also read that in Merriam-Webster's Dictionary Jack but according also to the online dictionary that "Stateroom" - "A small apartment for lodging or sleeping in the cabin, or on the deck, of a vessel.

Hope also that helps.
