SPECIAL NOTICE for Round Trip Tourist Passengers

All passengers holding return tickets are requested to communicate with our nearest office upon arrival, so that necessary formalities may be arranged in connection with their return passage.

Passengers holding return tickets who are undecided about their European addresses should advise same to our nearest office in Europe by mail or in person as soon as possible after arrival abroad. If this is done by letter, please mention sailing on which you will return and accommodation reserved for you.


For the convenience of travelers passing through Great Britain to join a steamer sailing for an overseas destination.

Special Arrangements Have Been Made by the British Customs for Allowing the Transit of Silk And/Or Artificial Silk Goods Brought as Bona Fide Personal Effects in Baggage.

The Customs Officers at the British port must, necessarily, put certain questions to passengers arriving from abroad, at which time any silk and/or artificial silk goods should be declared.

Passengers are asked to be frank and open in their declarations, and, in these circumstances, no difficulty need be anticipated with the British Customs Officials, who will facilitate all possible the transit of passengers and their baggage.


In accordance with the Custom and Excise requirements, Cameras are dutiable and tourists arriving with such are required to deposit with the authorities, 50% of the value, but this is refunded with the tourists' return to the United States or Canada. In the event of the tourist arriving at a British port and returning via Cherbourg, the deposit would be refunded prior to their departure from Great Britain to the Continent.


For the convenience of those passengers who may be returning from Europe to the United States or Canada and who have not yet made the necessary reservations, the Purser will be pleased to radio Cherbourg, Antwerp, Southampton, London, Paris or Liverpool Office, for any accommodation required.

This will enable passengers to complete their arrangements before leaving the steamer and will, consequently, save them time and trouble after landing.


It is advisable to reserve hotel accommodation in advance AT ANY SEASON OF THE YEAR.

Passengers not arranging reservations in advance by cablegram or mail, have the opportunity of sending a wireless message from the steamer, and in this connection certain hotels, as referred to on the marconigram form in use on board pay the charge for such messages.

At times there is considerable difficulty in obtaining satisfactory hotel accommodation if not previously reserved.
