Information for Passengers


One should address inquiries as to hold or baggage room to the Chief Officer and cabin baggage to the Purser.

Passengers are recommended to insure their Baggage, as the Company's liability is strictly limited per Contract Ticket.


1. The principal articles commonly brought by passengers on which duties of customs are chargeable on importation into Bermuda are:

Cinematograph films, clocks, watches and parts, cocoa, coffee, dried fruits, saccharine and mixtures, spirits, liqueurs, perfumery, sugar, confectionery, tea, tobacco, cigars, cigarettes, wine, snuff, pistols, and revolvers.

The discovery by the officers of any such articles which have not been so declared may lead to the detention of the passenger and his baggage and, in cases of apparent concealment, to arrest and prosecution and confiscation of the dutiable articles.

Any quantities, however small, of such articles brought in the baggage or on the persons of passengers, must be declared and produced to the Customs Officers in attendance to examine luggage.

Gold or silver plate of foreign manufacture which has not been assayed in this country must be produced.

Foreign reprints of registered copyright works, including music, extracts of tea, coffee, chicory, or tobacco, are prohibited and forfeited if found.

Merchandise is prohibited from being imported in baggage.

2. Explosives are prohibited from being imported in baggage. Together with the package in which they are found, Customs will detain such goods.

3. Any bribe, compensation, or reward, given, offered, or promised by any person to an officer of His Britannic Majesty's Customs as an inducement to him to neglect his duty in any way renders such person liable to a penalty of £200, and the officer who accepts it liable to fine and dismissal.

Officials will strictly enforce these enactments. The baggage of any passenger who contravenes the law will be retained for special examination after the luggage of all the other passengers has been cleared.

Passengers' baggage is carried by the Company's servants from the steamer onto the pier and placed under the initial letter of each passenger's name. After being assured that all the baggage has been landed, the passengers will secure the services of a Customs Inspector, and the usual formalities will then be carried out.

Property retained by the Passenger in the cabin or upon person must not be left lying about the ship or cabin, but, when not in actual use, must be locked in a trunk, etc., so as not to be easily opened or removed. Failure of a passenger to observe these requirements shall, in case of loss, etc., be deemed negligence of the passenger.

The Company will not be responsible for any property left unguarded by the passenger in the cabin or elsewhere on board while the steamer is in port.

The Bandsmen on board the steamers are on the ship's articles and are properly remunerated by the R.M.S.P. Company. The Company desires that subscriptions for the band should not be encouraged. If, however, any subscriptions are made on their behalf, they can only be regarded as voluntary on the part of passengers, from whom no subscription is necessary.

Smoking in State Rooms is prohibited, and, in the interests of the safety of all onboard, passengers are requested to refrain from the practice.

Small lap dogs may, by special permission, be carried in their owners' cabins, but large dogs and other animals, birds, etc., must be given into the charge of the appointed official.


In the event of any passengers considering that they have cause for complaint, either of the food, service, or accommodation, they are requested to bring the matter directly to the notice of the Commander during his daily inspection.


Passengers must conform with any regulations which the R.M.S.P. Co. or their officials may at any time consider necessary for the discipline or comfort of all on board.


On the ship's arrival at a port, an announcement will be displayed on the ship's notice board, giving information about the time of departure or transfer to other vessels, etc.
