SMOKING ROOM. - Decorated in the style of an old English Tudor room, the Smoking Room contains some wonderful carvings and panels. It is situated at the forward end of “A" Deck.

LOUNGE. -This is one of the most beautiful apartments in the ship and is situated on "B” Deck. One of its features is the entire absence of supporting pillars, so that with the exception of the space occupied by the promenade decks outside, the lounge stretches across the full width of the ship. It is handsomely furnished and is one of the most magnificent rooms afloat.

LADIES’ ROOM AND WRITING ROOM. — These are situated on "B” Deck, with entrance from the Dornige and the forward staircase.

BALLROOM.—This spacious room, on “B" Deck, with its specially prepared floor, can accommodate some 250 dancers. It is, without doubt, one of the most magnificent rooms on any ocean-going liner.

PALM COURT.—On “B” Deck, at the after end of the Ball Room. It serves the same purpose as the garden lounges on the “Aquitania," and the winter garden atmosphere is extraordinarily popular.

VERANDAH CAFE.—This is also on "B" Deck and commands a delightful view of the sea.

DINING SALOON. — Few hotels can boast of a more exquisite dining saloon, which is situated on “E’’ and "F" Decks. It is surmounted by a massive decorated dome, with a charmingly wrought iron balustrade surrounding the well. In both upper and lower saloons are numerous small tables so that friends can enjoy their meals in the comparative privacy of their own particular party.

IMPERIAL SUITES AND PARLOUR SUITES. —These rooms, on “C'* and “D” Decks, are furnished throughout in most attractive styles of the great French and English masters. Several of these suites comprise no fewer than ten different apartments.

GYMNASIUM AND SWIMMING BATH. — The former, situated on "A" deck, is fitted with all the latest kinds of athletic appliances. The Pompeian Swimming Bath, on "G" deck, is the finest of its kind afloat, and adjoining it are the electric and sun baths. Passengers can therefore enjoy a complete course of physical training.
