Atlas Line Service - Hamburg-American Line - 1905
From New York to Jamaica, Hayti, Colombia, Central America.
Steamers sail from Pier 55 Fool West 25th St., New York.
If one would escape the rigors of Northern winters, it is not necessary that he should seek the sunny ports of Europe, for almost at our doors lie Jamaica and the charming Islands of the West Indies, as well as the tropical shores of the Spanish Main. Jamaica has been termed " the heart of the Carribean," which sea has been called " the American Mediterranean." The neighboring shores and islands are second only to Jamaica in beauty and interest.
A voyage to these regions is neither too long nor too short, Jamaica being reached in six days from New York. The course being due South, every turn of the screw carries the traveller into more southern waters and balmier airs. Recent developments have added to the picturesque and climatic charms of the Carribean countries, a practical importance which renders them especially interesting at this time commercially.
The Atlas Line Service is maintained by the Steamships "Altai," Sarnia," " Sibiria," " Alleghany," " Alene," " Adirondack " " Valdivia," and " Graecia." These vessels are comfortable and attractive in their accommodations and equipment, enabling the tourist to travel to these southern waters under the most favorable circumstances.
The Weekly Service from New York enables the tourist to reach these southern points with the same facility that attends the other services of the HAMBURG-AMERICAN LINE. New steamers with superb accommodations will soon be added to this line to meet the ever increasing popularity of these Southern voyages.
