The RMS Majestic was suitably named. It really was a majestic transatlantic liner, the largest ship in the world until the 1930s. Formerly The SS Bismarck, the vessel was turned over to Britain by Germany under the terms of the Treaty of Versailles, the peace agreement at the end of the First World War. It was fitted out by The White Star line and plied the route between Southampton and New York in journeys that lasted less than six days.
With capacity for 2,145 passengers in first, second and third class, its public areas were decorated like an elegant English country home and there were multiple dining rooms and an indoor swimming pool, clad in marble. Majestic was a hugely popular commercial vessel and was the pride of the newly merged white Star-Cunard line but its fortunes began to decline when the Great Depression set in and the vessel was eventually scrapped in 1936.
