1930 Large Holland America STATENDAM First (Cabin) Class Color-Coded Deck Plan
Holland America Line: A large (33" by 43") First Class deck plan of the STATENDAM dated 1930. Sometime in the mid-1930s when renaming classes was the fashion, a "Cabin" label was glued over the original "First".

Seven decks are shown in detail with color-coding for cabin type. You or I would have booked one of the sixteen Cabins de Luxe on A and B decks. Unless of course we were financially-hobbled by the Great Depression but still wanted a taste of luxury. In that case we'd book one of the broom-closet sized cabins down on D Deck.

We could spend the day in polite conversation sitting in the lovely bow-facing Palm Court on Sun Deck, or grab a stool at the bar on Promenade Deck and sip Gin Fizzes. Sadly all this elegance went up in flames in May 1940 when the Germans invaded Rotterdam. By the time the flames subsided three days later, the STATENDAM was a charred wreck suitable only for the wreckers.
