All had the latest in restaurant equipment, from ovens to stockpots the floors were covered with a grooved tile to provide sure footing for the hardworking kitchen staff.

Some of the staff had a specific job, a vegetable cook would have only prepared vegetable meals other cooks included a pastry cook a sauce cook, and a fish cook, There was even a Hebrew cook to prepare kosher meals for the Jewish passengers.

A typical kitchen porter on the ship would have been paid a monthly wage of around £3 that’s about £290 in today money, whilst a cook would have earned about £4 a month (£400 today).
