3rd Class Dining

On Titanic the Third Class Dining Saloon was split in two sections. One was used by single men who were usually accommodated in one part of the ship and the other section was mainly for single ladies or families. The décor was very simple and the walls were adorned with posters advertising other White Star Line ships or travel routes.

In decades previous Third Class (or steerage) passengers were often required to bring their own food to last the voyage. However on Titanic, hearty meals were served by dedicated stewards. The service and attention aboard Titanic was considered excellent and the food was always plentiful and of good quality.

The Dining Rooms were fitted with long tables, beautifully set and passengers could order from the menu, which changed daily. The menus served a dual purpose and were printed as postcards on reverse and were a form of free advertising for the company when passengers sent messages to friends, family and loved ones. Seeing the lavish meals offered on board could entice the recipient to choose the company when traveling in the future.
