The Hamburg-American Line

The Hamburg - American Line is Germany’s oldest and largest shipping company. It was founded ninety years ago—on May 27th, 1847—by some Hamburg business men, and the name given to it was Hamburg-Amerikanische Packet- fahrt-Actien-Gesellschaft. Originally, the only vessels owned and operated were sailing ships. In the course of a few decades, the undertaking developed into a shipping concern of world-wide importance, and—in 1914—was the premier shipping company in the world.

Thanks to the vigour and energy with which the reconstruction programme was carried out, the company soon recovered from the consequences of the World War, so that it now occupies once more a leading position in world shipping. Its fleet consists of 102 sea-going ships and 196 smaller craft, aggregating 705,000 gross reg. tons.

The service between Hamburg and New York—now operated for ninety years—is the nucleus of the company’s network of regular lines that serve ports in every continent. When the firm was established, three sailing ships were built to look after that service; and a few years later, the first Hapag steamers were added.

Thus the foundation was laid for a development which caused that service to acquire world-wide fame thanks to the peak achievements of the ships employed in it which included the world’s biggest and fastest liners. More than 6,000,000 passengers have been carried so far on this route alone At present the company’s four twin-screw express steamers of the “Hamburg” class—each of which aggregates about 22,000 tons gross—are used on it.

The engine power of each being some 28,000 h.p., they are able to travel at a speed of 19 knots. The trip from Hamburg to New York takes eight days. Every Thursday throughout the year, one of the four leaves Hamburg for New York (via Southampton and Cherbourg), whilst another leaves New York for Hamburg (via Cherbourg and Southampton).

Each has accommodation for about 1,000 passengers, divided into the Cabin Class, Tourist Class, and Third Class. During the summer months the twin- screw motorship “St. Louis” (16,732 tons gross) is used to supplement the regular sailings carried out by the four boats of the “Hamburg” class.

In addition to the Hamburg-New York route, numerous other liner services are maintained by the Hapag, attending to the needs of more than 120 ports scattered throughout the world. Chief among them are those to Canada, Cuba-Mexico, to the West Indies and Central America, the west coast of North and South America, the Netherlands Indies, Australia, and the Far East. First-class ships are operated on all these routes, carrying passengers, cargo, and mail.

Apart from the regular liner services, the Hapag is prominently engaged in another important branch of shipping enterprise, the rise of which dates from the ’nineties of the past century. At that time the company inaugurated its famous pleasure cruises (by the express steamer “Auguste Victoria”), being the first shipping company in the world to extend its activities to that domain.

The popularity gained by the cruises is again as great as it was before the War. Thousands of passengers have been able to derive enjoyment from them, the parts visited including: the Northern countries, Madeira, the Mediterranean, and the West Indies, whilst a grand cruise around the world is also made once a year.

For three generations, the Hamburg-American Line has shown its flag on the seven seas. In another ten years’ time, a whole century will have passed since its foundation. The company is well-equipped with everything that is needed to achieve the purposes for which it was established and continues to be inspired by its traditional desire to render really first-class service to passengers and shippers alike.

Safety Regulations
Life preservers ready for immediate use are to be found at the top end of the beds in all cabins. They are put on like ordinary jackets and are tied together at the neck and across the body. The danger signal for passengers consists of seven short and one long blast of the steam-whistle. Upon this signal passengers proceed to the assembly places indicated in public notices on board. From here they are conducted to the boats by their room stewards under supervision of the officer in charge.

Important notices
According to the German Currency Regulations putting an embargo on the import of German Reichsmark Notes and Silver Coin officials and members of the crew are prohibited from accepting German Reichsmark Notes and German Silver Coin.

Passengers are therefore kindly requested to pay their bills and intended gratuities only in Ships Money Orders or in foreign currencies.

Films and Chemicals. Any large quantities of films, chemicals and other photographic material of inflammable nature may under no circumstances be kept in the cabins. Passengers are requested to hand them to the purser on board for safe-keeping.
