Passenger List Back Cover, October 1931 Westbound Voyage - TSS Rotterdam


General Information for Passengers.

Mail and Telegrams. Mail and telegrams for Passengers are brought on board steamer before embarkation and placed in the Passengers' rooms. For any inquiries relating to mails, Passengers are invited to call at the Chief Steward's office.

Seats at Table. Application for table seats may be made to the Chief Steward. Hours for meals are posted on the ship's bulletin board.

Return Tickets. The Purser will be glad to radio, free of charge, to the New York office of the Line, if you wish to make return reservations on any steamer of the Line.

Valuables. For the convenience of the Passengers the Line has provided safe deposit boxes in the Purser's office in which any valuables may be deposited upon payment to the Purser of $4.—; this amount to be refunded when the key of the deposit box is returned. However, the Line does not assume any responsibility for the safe custody of such articles. (Passengers may, if they wish, protect themselves by insurance).

Personal Funds. For the convenience of Passengers the Purser is prepared to cash a limited amount of recognized Travelers' Checks or to exchange money at official rates as posted at the Purser's office. A receipt is issued on such transactions on the Company's Form.

Personal checks cannot be cashed on board.

Divine Service. Divine service will be held on Sundays, at hours announced on the bulletin board, if a recognized clergyman on board is willing to officiate.

Ship's Newspaper. "The Ocean Post", containing latest wireless news and closing prices of the leading securities on the New York Stock Exchange, is published on board. A copy of this newspaper is placed, when issued, in passenger's stateroom with the compliments of the Line.

Medical Attention. Passengers requesting and accepting medical attendance and medicines from the ship's Physician, do so at their own risk without any responsibility on the part of the Company.

The services rendered and the medicines supplied by the ship's Physician are free, except that in cases, where Passengers require the service of ship's Physician for the treatment of ailments for which they already were under the care of a Physician at the time of embarkation, the ship's Physician may charge a reasonable fee for such services, subject to the approval and sanction of the Commander.

Additional Payments on Board. Passengers paying any supplements for room transfers, additional passage money, freight, telegrams, etc., should obtain a receipt from the Purser on the Company's Form.

For radiograms receipt will be furnished by the wireless operator.

Flying in America. The Holland-America Line have made arrangements whereby their Passengers have the facilities of the Curtiss-Wright Flying Service in America at their disposal on landing. The Purser will gladly give information on the routes and connections of this air line and radio ahead for reservations. Only a limited amount of luggage is carried on the aeroplanes; excess luggage being charged for at excess baggage rates.

Steamer Chairs, Rugs and Chair Cushions. Deck chairs, rugs and chair cushions may be hired on application to the Deck Steward at $ 1,50 each for the voyage.

U. S. Headtax. The attention of Passengers traveling in transit through the United States or going to the U. S. for temporary stay, i.e. who leave the U. S. within 60 days from date of entry, is drawn to the fact, that refund of headtax can only be obtained by surrendering to the Immigration Authorities a headtax-certificate (form 514), issued by the U. S. Immigration Officer, who examines and admits Passengers at the port of arrival.

Passengers will please note that this tax can only be recovered by them, provided they inform the U. S. Immigration Inspector on arrival at New York of their intention to leave the United States within 60 days, and obtain from him a headtax-certificate (form 514). After leaving the U. S. this form, duly signed by one of the persons named on the back of it and by the passenger himself, must be sent immediately to the Office of the Holland-America Line, 24 State Street, New York, in order to enable them to make application for refund of the tax.

No refund of headtax on behalf of Passengers in transit or tourists can be expected within four to six months after landing of the passenger in the United States.

Passengers, who are entitled to refund of headtax and who depart again from the U. S. by one of our steamers, will obtain refund on board. To this purpose they are invited to deliver the duly signed headtax-certificate (form 514) to the Purser as soon as possible, together with headtax receipts, issued by some carrier when collecting the tax from passenger.

Baggage. There is a baggage room on board steamer where Passengers may store such personal belongings as cannot be placed in their cabins, as well as baggage of any kind. The baggage room is open at hours as posted, and all inquiries pertaining to the storing or forwarding of baggage should be addressed to the Baggage Master.

Baggage Insurance. The Company's liability for damage to or loss or detention of baggage is strictly limited, and Passengers are, therefore, advised to protect themselves by insurance against risk of loss, theft, damage, pilferage, etc. Policies may be obtained at current rates at any office of the Line or through the Baggage Master on board this steamer.

Landing at New York. Motor Coach Service. For the convenience of Holland-America Line Passengers and their friends a motor coach service to and from the Holland-America Line Piers and the centrally located New York Hotels McAlpin and Commodore via the new Holland Tunnel is operated by the Fifth Avenue Coach Company and the Public Service Co-ordinated Transport of N. J.

Through the Purser you can reserve a place in one of the Motor Coaches to either the Hotel McAlpin or the Hotel Commodore at least 12 hours before arrival in New York. The charge for this reservation, for which you will receive a ticket, will be $ 1.- including the transfer of your hand baggage (not more than two pieces of hand baggage). Large baggage must be sent on separately.

The Holland-America Line accept no responsibility whatsoever in connection with this coach service.

Notice: All Passengers will receive on board a landingcard and are requested to present same before leaving the steamer to a U.S. Immigrant Inspector for endorsement.
