The Hamburg America Line is Germany’s oldest and largest steamship company. It was founded on May 27, 1847 by Hamburg merchants as the Hamburg-American Steam Packet Company and rose in the course of a few decades from an obscure firm owning a few sailing ships to the position of the world's largest steamship company whose ships sailed to every corner of the globe.

After the World War which resulted in the loss of practically all of its tonnage, untiring and persevering efforts soon enabled the Hamburg America Line to again occupy one of the leading positions in the shipping world with a modern fleet of 110 ocean-going steamers and 147 smaller vessels aggregating in all 788,178 Gross Register Tons.

The first service operated by the Company which today maintains regular services to all parts of the world, was between Hamburg and New York. After the foundation of the Company the service was inaugurated by three sailing ships, soon to be followed by the first steamers flying the Hapag flag. They started a rapid development of this important service by still larger and faster ships until, at the outbreak of the War, three giant liners plying between Hamburg and New York were the largest and most luxurious afloat.

Today the New York Service is maintained by the four twin-screw express steamers of the "Hamburg” type, of 22,000 Gross Register Tons. Propelled by engines of about 28,000 HP., these ships attain an average speed of 19 miles per hour enabling them to make the crossing from Hamburg to New York in eight days.

Every Thursday, in summer and winter, one of the "Famous Four” sails from Hamburg via Southampton and Cherbourg to New York while another one returns from New York via Cherbourg and Southampton to Hamburg. Each of these ships can accommodate about 1,000 passengers in Cabin, Tourist and Third Class. Besides the four ships of the "Hamburg” type, the twin-screw motorship "St. Louis” of 16,732 Gross Register Tons is also engaged in the New York Service.

In addition, a Twin-Screw Electric Liner for the North-Atlantic Service of the Company is in the course of construction, with a tonnage of about 36,000 tons, to be placed into service in the beginning of 1941.

Apart from this service, the Hamburg America Line maintains regular sailings to all parts of the world. More than 120 ports in every corner of the globe are regularly called at by the steamers of the Hamburg America Line. With excellent ships for the speedy transportation of passengers, cargo and mail, the Company maintains services to Canada, Cuba and Mexico, the West Indies and Central America, to the West Coast of North and South America, to the Dutch East Indies, to Australia, to China and Japan and other countries of the Far East.

Pleasure cruising has been another important branch of the Company’s business ever since, in the early nineties, the "Augusta Victoria" of the Hamburg- American Line sailed on the world’s first pleasure cruise.

The Twin-screw- steamer "New York” is scheduled yearly on Sbort and Long West Indies Cruises visiting the most remarkable places of the Caribbean.

The "Milwaukee” of 16,754 Tons is exclusively engaged in cruising carrying its passengers to the Mediterranean and the Lands of the Midnight Sun, to the Atlantic Islands and to the West Indies. The "Milwaukee”, among other features, is equipped with up-to-date installations for medicinal baths, massages and similar treatments making her the world’s first "floating Spa.”

To facilitate landing and to avoid unnecessary delay in Hamburg, arrangements have been made that all baggage can be despatched on board to its destination.

During the voyage in all baggage matters passengers must only communicate with the BAGGAGE REPRESENTATIVE. Other members of the ship’s crew are not entitled to accept orders regarding baggage.
