I sailed on S. S. Independence when she was sailing for American Hawaii Cruises; the Constitution was at dock at the Aloha Tower in Honolulu on the day we sailed.  One ship was berthed along the side of the pier; the other at the end of the pier.  Handsome vessels, large public rooms, but dated in decor and style.  The one oddity that I recall was the very small foyer at the forward entrance to the dining room.  Considering that room had been the First Class dining room when the ship was in TA service, I thought that, as I said, an oddity.  The area had a somewhat claustrophobic feel to it.  There was an annex that connected the forward and aft dining room.  Our dining table was at the aft end of the annex just before one would enter the aft dining room.  I liked that spot.  Since our stateroom was just forward of the forward dining room, we would use that entrance, walk through that room to get to our table, but still had a view of the aft dining room.
