Information for Passengers

Berths and Staterooms should be reserved as soon as possible in order to secure the most favorable location, especially during the summer season, when all available rooms are usually engaged considerable time (sometimes months) previous to departure of the steamship. When applying for accommodations, either by mail or telegraph, the name of the steamship, date of departure, number and sex of Passengers, and desired class of accommodations, should be stated.

Berths are not considered engaged unless secured by paying a deposit of 25.00 per berth for the first cabin and $ 10.00 per berth for the second cabin accommodations. The balance of the passage money must be paid not later than two weeks before sailing; if this has not been paid on or before that time, the Company reserves the right to resell the allotted accommodations. Deposits are refunded only if notice of cancellation is given not later than three weeks before sailing.

Passengers who do not sail on the steamship for which they have engaged accommodations or purchased a ticket, will forfeit fifty percent of the passage money, unless notice is given not later than three weeks previous to sailing.

Return and Prepaid Tickets entitle holders to passage only during the season and for the accommodations for which they have been issued. If used at any other season or for other accommodations than the face value indicates, holders will be required to make additional payment, or will be refunded any eventual difference in accordance with rates and rules in effect.

Return or Prepaid Tickets are good for one year from date of issue and are not transferable. Upon application to one of the Company's Passenger Offices, they may be extended by paying the difference between the rate in effect at the date of issue and time of sailing, in accordance with the conditions on the passage contract.

Return Accommodations may be secured through the Company's Passenger Offices or Agents. They should be engaged when securing berths for the outward trip, or as soon thereafter as possible. If a Passenger is prevented from sailing on a steamship for which return accommodations have been secured, a transfer to an earlier or later steamship can be made by applying to any of the Company's Offices or Agencies, provided application for the transfer be made not later than three weeks previous to the departure of the steamship on which berths had originally been reserved, and provided there be room available on the steamer selected.

Interchangeable Tickets. — The Holder of a return ticket first or second class has the option of returning by one of the following lines American Line, Atlantic Transport Line, Austro-Americana, Compagnie Générale Transatlantique, Cunard Line, Dominion Line, Hamburg America Line, Leyland Line, Norddeutscher Lloyd, Red Star Line and White Star Line, subject to the rules and regulations of the line by which the ticket is used. Return tickets of any of the above lines will in the same way be honored by the Holland-America Line.

If Unused Return Tickets are offered for cancellation, the amount paid for the round trip, less full outgoing fare and agent's commission, will be refunded against delivery of the return certificate to one of the Company's General Passenger Offices after authorisation has been received from the Company's General Passenger Office at Rotterdam.

Baggage. — Merchandise and Household-Articles are not accepted as baggage, but pay regular freight, as per tariff.

Through Checking of Baggage for Paris. — Baggage of cabin Passengers from New York to Paris via Boulogne-sur-Mer, can be checked through at our docks in Hoboken before embarkation, or on board the steamer.

Steamer Trunks should not be higher than 13 inches, and of the usual width and length, so that they can be placed under the berth or sofa in the stateroom.

Larger Pieces of Baggage are not permitted in the staterooms, but are stowed away in the baggage hold.

All pieces of baggage destined for staterooms must be marked "wanted", those for the baggage hold "not wanted", and must bear Passenger's name, destination, number of berth and name of steamship; tags may be had at all Company's Offices and Agencies or, on board, from the Baggagemaster.

Eastbound Passengers from the interior should have their baggage checked to the Holland-America Line dock, foot of Fifth Street, Hoboken, N. J., by the baggage express Agent on the train, previous to arrival in New York, Jersey City, etc.

Custom House Examination. — The baggage of Passengers leaving the steamship at Boulogne-sur-Mer, will be examined by the French Custom House Officers at the Gare Maritime at said port, or on arrival at Paris. The examination by the Holland Custom House Officials will take place on arrival at Rotterdam, or at the Hook of Holland, at the pier of the Holland-America Line, built at the "Hook" in 1903, and which pier may be used as a landing place for Passengers and their baggage whenever tide or other circumstances may prevent the steamship from proceeding at once to Rotterdam.

Orders for Delivery of baggage free of charge at the railway depots in Rotterdam and Boulogne-sur-Mer are taken by the Baggagemaster on board the ship.

Bicycles, provided properly crated, will be taken as baggage at owner's risk, at a fixed rate.

Steamer Chairs, of improved construction, may be rented at the different Offices of the Company, on the dock and on board the steamer for one trip, at a fixed rate.

Steamer Rugs can be hired on board from the Purser at a charge of 1.— for one trip.

Valuables. This Company will not be responsible for money, jewelry or other valuables of Passengers.

Passengers are warned not to keep such articles in their staterooms. Keys to the staterooms may be obtained from the chief Steward upon application.

Each steamship is supplied with a safe in which all articles of value may be deposited. Both SS "Rotterdam" and "Nieuw Amsterdam" are provided with a safe deposit which is at the disposal of Passengers.

Inflammable or Explosive Articles are not allowed on board.

Arms must be surrendered to the Purser during the voyage.

Seats at Table. — Seats at table, are allotted by the chief Steward or his assistent.

Mail will be accepted by the Purser after leaving New York and forwarded by pilot from Sandy Hook, without responsibility for proper mailing, however, on the part of the Company. Letters or postcards to be posted at Plymouth, Boulogne-sur-Mer or Rotterdam should be put into the mailbag which will be hung in due time in a convenient place. Passengers are requested to put their letters etc. into the mailbag themselves.

Stamps, stationery, postal cards, cable and telegraph blanks can be obtained from the saloon Steward.

Letters and Telegrams. — The Company is willing to accept letters or telegrams for Passengers to be delivered on board on arrival or departure, without assuming, however, any responsibility for their proper delivery. The name of the Passenger should be distinctly written, also the name of the steamship on which Passengers travel. Undelivered letters are returned to the Post Office.

Money. — Money of the United States or of European countries is accepted on board the steamships of the Holland-America Line in payment of all bills, at fixed rates of Exchange. Foreign moneys are bought and sold at current rates at the Company's Offices in Europe.

The attention of the Managers has been called to the fact that certain persons, believed to be professional gamblers, are in the habit of traveling to and fro in atlantic steamships.

In bringing this to the knowledge of Travellers, the Managers, while not wishing in the slightest degree to interfere with the freedom of action of Patrons of the Holland-America Line, desire to invite their assistance in discouraging games of chance, as being likely to afford these individuals special opportunities for taking unfair advantage of others.

Claims. — In case of any disagreement arising between the Passenger and the Purser on board as regards charges to be paid, number of tickets required or passage money due, or accommodations to be assigned, the Passenger is respectfully requested to pay the Purser's claim, take his receipt for same and upon arrival refer the case to the Passenger Agent, who will promptly investigate and adjust same. The Purser has no discretionary power in such matters, but is governed by rules which he is not authorized to change.
