It's also pretty easy to do. You walk right into the mens' toilets the way you would any modern public bathroom, so you might expect the women's bathroom to be the same. To get to the ladies' toilets, you first enter from the 1st Class area into a lounge exclusive to women that anyone can explore as they would the rest of the ship. Then, you turn left to enter the bathroom proper, which is a room with a sink in the middle with a bench to the left and two toilets to the right.

Men and women alike often went into the lounge then, in "tourist mode," continued walking into the bathroom. Keep in mind the Trust used the recovered original fittings and used recreations when the originals weren't recoverable. The bathrooms really are an attraction in and of themselves. It wasn't uncommon for unintentional voyeurs to be wowed by the decor and belatedly realize they were in a fully functional ladies' bathroom.
