Deck Plan

Below you will see four sections of Deck Plans covering the RMS Ormuz and these as you will note only covers the First and Second Classes, thus sadly I have not been able to locate anything relating to Third Class accommodations as the Deck Plan seems to miss it altogether.

However, I have noted that there were three stairwells on B Deck heading down to C Deck to I assume the Third Class accommodations. For interest, I do know that it was not unusual in those days that bunks were stacked three high!

I have these stairwells clearly marked on the special enlarged insert located below B Deck.


The Dining Room was on one Deck below Promenade Deck. The two Lounges

are located above the dining venue on the Promenade Deck 


First and Second Class Cabins and the Second Class Smoking Room on Promenade Deck


A Deck is also mentioned as Main Deck, and here we see Drawing Room and Library with the First Class cabins forward

And note that all the bathing and WC facilities are located amidships and well separated


 Here we see the main section of Second Class and their Dining Saloon. There are cabins aft and forward

of the restaurant and the facilities again separated forward, similar to that of in First Class.

I have noted the area of the stairways to C Deck and the location of the Third Class accommodations
