General Information For Passengers

The following notes will help to answer many of the questions that a passenger might wish to ask. All cash amounts are expressed in Sterling unless otherwise indicated.

Where To Make Enquiries And Complaints
Questions which your Steward cannot answer should be referred to the Purser's Office which is open at the times shown on the special information card placed in all cabins.

The Purser and his assistants are in charge of all the cabins, meals and service throughout the ship. If you are dissatisfied about anything that cannot at once be put right by a Steward you should refer the matter I# the Purser, or in serious cases to the Captain, so that it can be looked into at once and, if possible, put right. If the question cannot be dealt with on the spot, the ship's authorities will at any rate have the details of your criticism, so that they can report and discuss it with the Company's officials in London or Australia.

Money
The Purser is not authorized to accept ordinary cheques. As the supply of money on board is limited, he can, in general, only accept travelers’ cheques and drafts under letters of credit in payment of accounts due to the ship. If he has sufficient money available, however, he may cash them for a reasonable amount.

Valuables
Passengers are strongly recommended to entrust cash, jewelry, etc., to the Purser.
In return for a charge of 5 - per £100 value for the voyage to or from Egypt or 10/- per £100 value for a voyage to or from more distant ports, the Purser will issue a receipt and the Company will accept responsibility for safe custody.

Alternatively the Purser will accept a sealed package without making a charge and will issue a receipt, but in this case neither he nor the Company can accept any responsibility for the deposit.

Health
The Surgeon will be in attendance in the Surgery at the hours stated on the information card and the ship's notice board, and is always available in emergency. He is authorized to charge 10 - Sterling per visit, which charge includes medicines. In ships where an X-Ray apparatus is carried the Surgeon is authorized to charge 2 gns. Sterling per X-Ray. A trained hospital nurse is available under the direction of the ship's Surgeon. Passengers are warned of the danger of contracting chills by sleeping in the direct draught of a blower or fan or by sitting under a fan when heated by playing games, etc.

If good health is to be maintained in hot weather the amount of salt normally taken must be increased substantially since a great deal of it is lost through perspiration. Unless this is replaced, it leads to tiredness, loss of appetite, sleeplessness headache and a general feeling of being run down. This can be avoided either by increasing the amount of table salt eaten with meals or by dissolving salt tablets in drinking water. These latter are not unpleasant in flavor and may be purchased from the Ship's shop.

When ashore at ports in hot climates passengers are advised to avoid Water or Milk that has not been boiled or sterilized, uncooked Vegetables, Salads, and soft Fruits unless the protective skin is peeled before eating.

The regulations on board are devised for the safety and comfort of passengers as a whole, and passengers are asked to assist in seeing them carried out. Passengers are asked to avoid causing any undue noise, particularly on “C” Promenade Deck and in all Passenger alleyways during the night and the early afternoon. If this can be done it means greatly increased comfort for everybody.
