Information for Passengers.

Berths and Staterooms should be reserved as soon as possible in order to secure the most favorable location, especially during the summer season, when all available rooms are usually engaged considerable time (sometimes months) previous to departure of the steamship. When applying for accommodations, either by mail or telegraph, the name of the steamship, date of departure, number and sex of Passengers, and desired class of accommodations, should be stated.

Berths are not considered engaged unless secured by paying a deposit of $ 25.00 per berth for the first cabin and $ 10.00 per berth for the second cabin accommodations. The balance of the passage money must be paid not later than two weeks before sailing; if this has not been paid on or before that time, the Company reserves the right to resell the allotted accommodations. Deposits are refunded only if notice of cancellation is given not later than three weeks before sailing.

Passengers who do not sail on the steamship, for which they have engaged accommodations or purchased a ticket, will forfeit fifty per cent of the passage money, unless notice is given not later than three weeks previous to sailing.

Return and Prepaid Tickets entitle holders to passage only during the season and for the accommodations for which they have been issued. If used at any other season or for other accommodations than the face value indicates, holders will be required to make additional payment, or will be refunded any eventual difference in accordance with rates and rules in effect.

Return or Prepaid Tickets are good for one year from date of issue and are not transferable. Upon application to one of the Company's Passenger Offices, they may be extended by paying the difference between the rate in effect at the date of issue and time of sailing, in accordance with the conditions on the passage contract.

Return Accommodations may be secured through the company's Passenger Offices or Agents. They should be engaged when securing berths for the outward trip, or as soon thereafter as possible. If a Passenger is prevented from sailing on a steamship for which return accommodations have been secured, a transfer to an earlier or later steamship can be made by applying to any of the Company's Offices or Agencies, provided application for the transfer be made not later than three weeks previous to the departure of the steamship on which berths had originally been reserved, and provided there be room available on the steamer selected.

IF UNUSED Return Tickets are offered for cancellation, the amount paid for the round trip, less full outgoing fare and agent's commission, will be refunded against delivery of the return certificate to one of the Company's General Passenger Offices after authorisation has been received from the Company's General Passenger Office at Rotterdam.

CUSTOM HOUSE Examination. — The baggage of Passengers leaving the steamship at Boulogne-sur-Mer, will be examined by the French Custom House Officers at the Gare Maritime at said port, or on arrival at Paris. The examination by the Holland Custom House Officials will take place on arrival at Rotterdam, or at the Hook of Holland, at the pier of the Holland-America Line, built at the „Hook" in 1903, and which pier may be used as a landing place for Passengers and their baggage whenever tide or other circumstances may prevent the steamship from proceeding at once to Rotterdam.

Orders for Delivery of baggage free of charge at the railway depots in Rotterdam and Bonlogne-sur-Mer are taken by the Baggagemaster on board the ship.

BICYCLES, provided properly crated, will be taken as baggage at owner's risk, at a fixed rate.

The attention of the Managers has been called to the fact that certain persons, believed to be professional gamblers, are in the habit of travelling to and fro in atlantic steamships.

In bringing this to the knowledge of Travellers, the Managers, while not wishing in the slightest degree to interfere with the freedom o faction of Patrons of the Holland-America Line, desire to invite their assistance in discouraging games of chance, as being likely to afford these individuals special opportunities for taking unfair advantage of others.

Claims. — In case of any disagreement arising between the Passenger and the Purser on board as regards charges to be paid, number of tickets required or passage money due, or accommodations to be assigned, the Passenger is respectfully requested to pay the Purser's claim, take his receipt for same and upon arrival refer the case to the Passenger Agent, who will promptly investigate and adjust same.
