Ship Information

The inexpensive cost of modern “one class run-of-the-ship” transportation has brought a trip to Europe within the range of most travel budgets. And experienced travelers have found that they have more to spend abroad by sailing “tourist class is top’’ on the Red Star Line.

In spite of this saving in cost you can enjoy excellent accommodations, splendid food and service . . . and the unrestricted facilities of a fine transatlantic ship.

Round Trip New York-Antwerp was $189-$196 in the Tourist Class only Ships of SS Konigstein, Gerolstein, and Iisenstein in 1937.
