To Boston and New York with the White Star Line. Third Class Accommodations.
Third Class Accommodations on the "Big Four"
The following brochure photographs and information represent the accommodations on the new motor ship "Britannic" (27,000 Tons) —the largest British motor ship — the "Adriatic" (24,679 Tons) —the largest steamer sailing from Liverpool —The "Baltic" (23,884 Tons) and the "Cedric" (21,227 Tons).
These ships form the world-famous "Big Four" of the Liverpool-New York service of the White Star Line. - "Britannic" and "Cedric" also operate a fourteen-day service to Boston, while the "Adriatic" in Belfast and Glasgow moors heading for the West instead of in Cobh (Queenstown).
These steamships offer convenience, entertainment, and a famous kitchen. The cinema screenings are a new well-seen example. The opportunity is well laid out and provided with every amenity, which has been sufficiently demonstrated by the photos in this booklet, and every reasonable necessity of the traveler is provided.
The excellent service for which the White Star Line is famous, as well as the steadiness of its ships at sea, ensure a pleasant crossing.
