Photographs of the S.S. Moltke and Blücher - Hamburg-American Line 1905 Brochure

Photographs of the S.S. Moltke and Blücher of the Hamburg-American Line 1905 with over nine Interior of First and Second Cabin Accommodations. Photographs from the 1905 Brochure - Across the Atlantic.

Special Twin Screw Service

From New York to Plymouth (London). Cherbourg (Pans) and Hamburg, and from Hamburg via Dover (London), or Boulogne ( Paris) to New York.

The two well-known sister ships " Moltke" and "Blücher," and the steamship "Hamburg," recently added to the service, have been constructed to meet every demand of discriminating travellers. They register about 12,000 tons; and are 525 feet long, 62 feet wide and 45 feet deep, with quadruple expansion engines, developing 8,000 horse-power. Constructed with double bottoms and water-tight compartments, absolute safety is assured.

In less than eight days Plymouth is reached, whence the trip to Cherbourg takes but a few hours; and the entire voyage to Hamburg consumes about nine and one-half days. The first cabin accomodations are located amidships.

The passengers quarters are distributed over five decks. Beginning with the uppermost deck, known as the Boat Deck, on the " Moltke" and " Blücher," we find the Gymnasium and the Grill Room. Next comes the Promenade Deck, with the Drawing Room, Smoking Room and many fine staterooms.

On the Saloon Deck is located the Grand Saloon accomodating about 225 persons, and other large and comfortable cabins are on this deck. The Upper Deck and the Main Deck are devoted entirely to staterooms.

The staterooms are large, and are equipped in a comfortable and homelike manner. Many of these have lower berths only, and there are staterooms arranged en suite for the use of families or friends. Chambres de luxe with private bath and toilet have also been provided.

All of the inside rooms and some of the outside rooms on the upper decks are designed for the occupancy of one person. There is a large demand for such rooms. There are no less than thirty bathrooms on each of these steamers. The Stewards Office at the head of the Main Companionway corresponds to a regular hotel office.

The Second Cabin accomodations also are of a superior nature. In these vessels luxurious travel with excellent meals and service are available at a more moderate expense than on the fast flyer.
