The luxurious, first-class, Café Parisien:
What the café was like as described by The Shipbuilder magazine:
“…a Café Parisien, which is an entirely new feature on board ship, has been arranged in connection with the restaurant, and here lunches and dinners can be served under the same excellent conditions and with all the advantages of the restaurant itself…it will be seen that this café has the appearance of a charming sun-lit verandah, tastefully decorated in French trellis-work with ivy and other creeping plants, and is provided with small groups of chairs surrounding convenient tables.”

The first-class smoking room, was men only. The room was built in the Georgian style — which was a style popular with gentlemen’s club at the time.
