Rooms aboard Caronia and Carmania had a distinctly British feel to them. The rooms had subtle refinement that was sure to be enjoyed by passengers. The lounge, with its Jacobean grapevine ornamentation and Queen Anne style sitting chairs, must have been an inviting social room to passengers. Company advertisements declared the room “so pleasantly and familiarly English, you’ll immediately label it homelike.”
The writing room aboard Caronia and Carmania was divided to prevent a sense of being “home seated out in the great open spaces.” The gayly colored carpet managed to be discreet in color and pattern, and the room was brightly lit by both artificial and natural light, which streamed through large windows. The desks and other appointments were pronounced to be “nicely and correctly done.” Overall, the room must have been superlatively enjoyable and a warm and welcome retreat for fountain-penning a letter.
