MAKING TITANIC THE GRANDEST SHIP OF HER TIME
Concluding Olympic’s maiden voyage, White Star Line’s Managing Director, Bruce Ismay, noted a number of changes he wanted to make to Titanic. His changes were made to improve Titanic and ensure she was the largest in size and the grandest Ship of her time.
After Olympic’s first sailing Ismay noted the excessive size of the deck space. He decided to increase the size and luxury of the B-Deck suites on Titanic by removing the under-used promenade deck. He also enclosed the forward end of Titanic's A-Deck with windows so passengers could still use the promenade in severe weather conditions. Another modification that was made during Titanic’s construction was adding the French sidewalk café, Café Parisien, for First-Class passengers to use.
