The First Class Dining Saloon was the largest room on any ship at the time. Nearly 35 meters long and spanning the entire width of the ship, the room was decorated in Jacobean style but instead of the heavily carved rich wooden paneling, the room was almost entirely paneled in white. Leaded glass windows with light diffusion screens covered the portholes to eliminate any hint that one was aboard a ship. Placed about the room were dozens of tables that either allowed more intimate dining for two or could accommodate large parties of up to 12 passengers.

Here the service was exceptional. Passengers ate off fine bone china with silver cutlery and drank from crystal glasses. Food and wine was served by stewards that were allocated at a ratio of one steward for every two or three passengers. This ensured flawless service and that every passenger’s wish was swiftly met. Meal times were announced by bugle approximately 45 minutes before doors opened and the dress code was relaxed for breakfast and lunch, however dinner attire was always formal (except on sailing day) and dinner was followed by a concert in the adjoining Reception Room.
