An Atlantic crossing took 3-4 days. Passengers could engage in a number of activities both on deck and inside to pass the time during the voyage.
Games were modified to accommodate the small available space and windy conditions on deck.
Afternoon tea could be had on deck
Shuffleboard was a standard offering
There was plenty of room on deck to enjoy the sunshine
But it could be cold on deck
Children had their own playroom to enjoy and network with other passengers
There were late buffets for the night owls
Meals were a big part of time onboard the ship
And it was an incredible honor to be hosted at the captain’s table
First and Cabin class passengers had access to a theater that seated 350 people
