Tourist Third Cabin replaced the old Third Class on the Cunard Line Steamships, the refinished accommodations attracted students, professors, young business people, and bargain-hunters filling the cabins left mostly empty from the decline of the immigrant trade. This is a photo journal of the accommodations found in the new Tourist Third Cabin class.
What is Tourist Third Cabin? Accommodations for this class have been designed specifically to meet the needs of travelers who cannot afford higher-rated accommodation. Yet this traveler still requires comfort, good service, spaciousness, and a pleasant, friendly atmosphere.
It has its own separate accommodation, its own personnel, its own particular high standard of comfort. It does not promise the luxury of the most expensive hotels, but it does provide the best travel value for money that can be obtained.
The cost for an ocean voyage is moderate î in fact, very economical. While there is a reduction for a round-trip voyage, it is equally satisfactory for the one-way trip.
Menus are varied and extensive. Accommodation includes, apart from the spacious dining saloons, libraries, private staterooms for two or three persons, numerous bathrooms, an open-air swimming pool, open and glass-enclosed promenades and ample spaces for deck games.
There is an orchestra, and during the voyage, there are always dances, sports, concerts, and carnivals. Tourist Third Cabin is, in the opinion of many, the most fruitful accomplishment in Atlantic travel for a generation.
It is increasing the number of travelers — and it is making it possible for older travelers to have two journeys where only one could be made before.
