Third Cabin to Europe

By WHITE STAR LIne CANADIAN SERVICE

The Third cabin is a much-abused term. It is confused with the steerage of the olden days when, as a matter of fact, there is no more connection between "third cabin" and "steerage" than there is between an automobile and a kiddie car.

The third cabin is the most economical way of traveling to Europe. But because it is economical, it does not mean it is not comfortable. On the other hand, the comfort provided for the money you spend on the ticket comes as a refreshing surprise.

There are two, four, or six cabins so that friends who want to travel are not separated by their cabins. Those who travel the third cabin have one part of the steamer for their exclusive use. The dining rooms are bright, cheery, and well-ventilated, and here, appetites, sharpened by the ocean air, are well satisfied.

Meals are varied, wholesome, and served pleasingly. The stewards recognize you are guests, not "steerage passengers," and close supervision is maintained to see that you receive White Star service, famous for 60 years.

Facilities are available if you want to rest, and the sun shines just as radiantly on you as anyone else. Deck space is ample, and you can have just as much fun as any other class of passengers. The deck stewards have games available, and then there are sports and other activities.

Traveling the third cabin is a community affair. There is no formality. You can mix with your friends and have a rollicking time on deck or in public rooms, such as the lounge, the social hall, or the smoking room.

When the sun sinks on the horizon, you will find organized dances, concerts, whist drives, and bridge parties. Or, maybe, a quiet game or a book. Probably all you desire at night is to sit with your friends and watch the others—well, that is your privilege. Your comfort in the third cabin is the first thought of the White Star Line Canadian Service.
