Information for First and Second Class Passengers



Enquiries as to hold baggage should be addressed 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 in accordance with Contract Ticket.

  2. 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 for the examination of baggage.
  3. 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 eases of obvious concealment, to arrest and prosecution and confiscation of the dutiable articles.
  4. Gold or silver plate of foreign manufacture which has not been assayed in this country must be produced.
  5. Foreign reprints of registered copyright works, including music, and extracts of tea, coffee, chicory or tobacco are prohibited, and if found will be forfeited.

  7. Explosives are prohibited to be imported in baggage. Such goods, together with the package in which they are found, will be detained

  9. Any bribe, recompense, 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 dismissal
