The Afternoon Tea scene takes place before the famed "I'm Flying" scene on Sunday April 14th, 1912

The lounge had beautiful stained glass windows, and an extravagant fireplace. It could be entered by 2 doors 1 forward, and 1 aft. the lounge was decorated in Louis V style taken from the Palace of Versailles in France. The room was lit by wall sconces and a large chandelier above the middle of the room. Passengers could read books located on the bookshelf located in the aft end of the room.

Open from 8am to 11:30pm daily, the Lounge was a place for 1st-Class passengers to socialize, play cards, have Tea, or read a book provided in a large oak bookcase set against one of the boiler casings sheaved in oak on the other side of the room (across from the fireplace).

After the collision with the iceberg, passengers gathered in the lounge to avoid the biting cold while awaiting further instructions from the crew. Witnesses testified the Titanic's orchestra began their performance that night in the lounge at this time 12:15am.

When the Titanic broke up, the lounge was located directly in the affected area and disintegrated. Artifacts from the room can be found today in the debris field.

BeveragesEdit

The lounge had its own small pantry to allow First Class stewards to serve tea, Liqueurs (alcoholic beverages with added sugar and flavorings of fruits, nuts or herbs), Buttered Toast and small sandwiches. Afternoon Tea was served in the Lounge at 4pm daily to offer 1st-Class passengers a choice to have Tea in this room instead of the Reception Room on D Deck.

  • Berry
  • Chocolate
  • Coffee
  • Cream
  • Crème
  • Flower
  • Fruit

Popular cultureEdit

In James Cameron's 1997 movie Titanic, it is in this room on Sunday April 14th, 1912 that Rose DeWitt Bukater, Ruth DeWitt Bukater, the Countess of Rothes, and Lucile Lady Duff-Gordon take tea while Ruth tells them about Rose's wedding plans. How the invitations were sent back to the stationers (twice in fact, much to their shock) While the suns rays glow orange and Ruth continues talking to the other Ladies, the quintet can be heard playing Archibald Joyce's "Vision of Salome" waltz in the background.
