Information for Passengers

Letters and Telegrams. The Chief Steward is charged of the distribution of incoming mail. Letters for passengers will be brought on board at the port of destination before the passengers land. In their own interest, therefore, passengers should personally ascertain whether there is any mail for them before they leave the ship.

Before leaving the ship passengers are recommended to notify the purser's office of their address, so that all mail arriving after their departure may be forwarded to them.

Letters and telegrams may be directed c/o any of the company's agents.

Telegrams, to be dispatched from the next port, are accepted at the purser's office only, wireless messages at the ship's wireless station.

Photographer. The photographer is entitled to charge for his services in accordance with the tariff exhibited.

Smoking is permitted only in the Smoking Room and on deck. It is strictly prohibited below deck, in the salon or in the state rooms.

SERVICE. Passengers are requested, in their own interest, to submit any complaints they desire to make to the Captain at the time of his daily round of inspection every morning. The wishes of the passengers will be considered in the best possible manner.

Baggage. Only small parcels, and cabin baggage in limited quantity may be taken into the stateroom. Trunks and other bulky articles must be stored in the bag- age room, to which passengers have access daily at stated times. Baggage may not be deposited in the corridors.

Money and Valuables. Facilities are provided for the safekeeping of money, securities, etc. The North German Lloyd however assumes no responsibility for such valuables given into its custody. The purser or the Chief Steward will furnish complete information upon request.

Wireless Telegraph

The wireless stations (Tele-funken-System) on board of all steamers of the Norddeutscher Lloyd are permanently in communication with coast stations either directly or by way of other ships.

All information regarding the dispatch of wireless messages, length of time required for transmission and telegraph fee may be obtained free of charge at the wireless station on board, or on land from the Deutsche Betriebsgesellschaft für drahtlose Telegrafie m. b. Berlin, SW 11, Hallesches Ufer 12/13; telegraphic address "Debeg", telephone No.: Lützow 3640/34.

Good News for Returning Aliens

Whereas heretofore resident aliens returning from a visit abroad and traveling Third Class could not be admitted by the immigration authorities immediately after the steamer's arrival, but had to pass the various immigration stations, in New York for instance Ellis Island, the Commissioner General of Immigration has just now issued instructions to all immigration stations in the various ports that RETURNING ALIENS holding an unexpired Return Permit to reenter the United States and traveling Third Class on a steamer, shall be examined at the same place where Cabin passengers are examined and Will Be Admitted Direct from The Steamer If Found Admissible.
