Cunard Canadian Service Sailing Schedule from 16 May 1912 to 23 November 1912. Ships Include the Ascania, Ausonia, and Ultonia. The steamers are fine modern twin-screw vessels especially adapted in size and equipment to the service. The fares charged are the lowest of any line of steamers sailing from England to Canada. Second Cabin and Third Class passengers are only carried, which means that the accommodation set aside on board for both these classes is more commodious and spacious than would otherwise be the case. The Second Cabin accommodation is situated in the center of the ship, and the Third Class comprises small closed rooms. On the "Ascania" and "Ausonia," there are two separate dining rooms for Third Class passengers on each vessel. Experienced stewardesses look after the requirements of the women and children. Passengers resident in London or in places so situated that they have to pass through London to reach Southampton are provided with Free Conveyance (Third Class) from London to Southampton.
