SS Prinz Oskar and Prinz Adelbert Photos - Hamburg America Line - 1905

Photographs of the SS Prinz Oskar and Prinz Adelbert - Hamburg America Line 1905 including interior views (1 large format, 4 small format) and an illustration of the sister ships.

Mediterranean Service

From New York to Naples and Genoa, and From Genoa, Palermo and Naples to New York.

The increasing popularity of this service has led the Company to assign exclusively to this route two new, steel, twin-screw steamships: namely, the " Prinz Oskar" and the "Prinz Adalbert." They were built specially for the Mediterranean Service, and conform in every respect to the standards of the most modern and luxurious Atlantic liners. They are large vessels of about 6,700 tons gross register.

The twin-screw system renders each, in effect, two steamers in one. The staterooms are roomy and convenient, and situated amid-ship on the upper and saloon decks. They are arranged for one, two, three or four passengers; and suites consisting of parlor, bedroom, bath and toilet have also been provided. The large social saloons are ornate in themselves and are appropriate in their furnishings.

Located on the promenade deck are the ladies' parlor and gentlemens' smoking room, while the dining room is on the upper deck. The promenade deck is covered by a permanent wooden awning and affords ample space for promenading, games, etc.—as well as for the placing of deck chairs. Service and cuisine are excellent and of the same standard as that of the popular steamers " Moltke" and " Bliicher " of the north Atlantic service. A band of musicians accompanies each vessel.

During the winter months the Express Steamer " Deutschland" and the steamship " Moltke" are added to this service for several special trips.

The Folks Behind the GG Archives

The GG Archives is the work and passion of two people, Paul Gjenvick, a professional archivist, and Evelyne Gjenvick, a curator. Paul earned a Masters of Archival Studies - a terminal degree from Clayton State University in Georgia, where he studied under renowned archivist Richard Pearce-Moses. Our research into the RMS Laconia and SS Bergensfjord, the ships that brought two members of the Gjønvik family from Norway to the United States in the early 20th century, has helped us design our site for other genealogists. The extent of original materials at the GG Archives can be very beneficial when researching your family's migration from Europe.
