Good Reasons Why the Newest Ocean Liners are Referred to as Floating Palaces

While the firstphotograph of the new steamship Titanic received in New York shows aship in most respects like the Olympic there is a pronounced differencein the deck, or what is on the Olympic the lower promenade deck. Onthis deck on the new ship there is no public promenade at all.

Insteadthe staterooms are brought flush with the outside of thesuperstructure, and the rooms themselves made much larger.  The sittingrooms of some of the suites on this deck are 15 by 15 feet, in fact,this deck is the most luxurious of the vessel.

Therestaurant is much larger than that of the Olympic and is has a noveltyin the shape of a private promenade deck on the starboard side, to beused exclusively by its patrons.  Adjoining it is a reception roomwhere hosts and hostesses may meet their guests before going into therestaurant.

The biggest novelty is two private promenades connected with the two most luxurious suiteson the ship.  These suites are about the most expensive ever installedon the ship so far as the passenger is concerned.  It will be possiblefor the occupants to be just exclusive on shipboard as in their ownhomes.
