The Georgian First Class Reading and Writing Room was intended to be a ladies retreat following dinner similar to a Drawing Room. The room was open from 8am to 11:30pm same as the First Class Lounge next door. It was a room painted in white and the tall windows had pink curtains to add to the feminine ambiance. Books could be borrowed from the Lounge and writing desks were provided for the use of writing letters to home or to send postcards. All post was posted at Cherbourg, France and Queenstown, Ireland. There was a postbox in the Lounge next to the doors entering the Lounge. The room was warmed by a coal-imitation fireplace. tall potted ferns were situated in the corners around the room. Although men could use the room, few to none of them did.

As it was discovered during the voyage that the rooms intended purpose for after dinner was not met, the ship's designer Thomas Andrews made the decision to include more First Class staterooms in this area to make the room smaller.
