New Triple Screw S.S. Belgenland

27,200 tons — 697 feet long — 78 ; feet wide
The Belgenland is the world's eighth largest ocean liner. She is 27,20o tons register, 697 ft. long and 78.5 ft. beam and she can accommodate 2700 Passengers — 454. in first class.
In the arrangement of her decks, and also in her living quarters for Passengers in all three classes, the Belgenland possesses a number of striking features. Her staterooms and private suites in first class meet the demands of a fashionable and luxury-loving traveling public, while her rooms in second and third class set a standard that is not excelled.

The first class sleeping apartments of the Belgenland are distinguished by their varied and luxurious character. In the suites, both large and small, are found double beds of metal with
box springs and hair mattresses quite as ;large and luxurious as the finest beds on shore. Still another important feature of the Belgenland'S staterooms is the installation of wash basins with hot and cold running water.

In the ship's deck arrangement are found two unusual features. One is an observation promenade forward of the main deckhouses, across the promenade deck, as on a private yacht, with space for chairs of Passengers who may wish to take a sun bath or to observe the course of the ship ahead. Another is a glass enclosure of the main promenade deck with bulwarks sufficiently low to enable Passengers to look out upon the sea with unobstructed view while still reclining in a deck chair.

One outstanding novelty on the Belgenland which distinguishes the ship from all other liners is the character of the service in the first class restaurant. The table d'hôte has been abolished. In its place is a full Continental restaurant service, with meals a la carte and cooked to order and with Continental waiters in attendance. One may dine when one wishes. No extra charge is made for meals. Under this system each meal is created to the order of the passenger.

Restaurant buffets have electric devices keeping dishes warm during a meal. Small tables prodominate in the Belgenland'S ultra modern restaurant. Out of a total of 342 seats in the main dining hall, 18o are at two-seated tables. The remainder are at four-seated and six-seated tables.

Connected with the main saloon are private dining rooms for families or Passengers who may desire to entertain or may wish more privacy than the main dining hall affords.

Forward of the restaurant, and separated from it by a glass screen as clear as crystal, is another apartment, which, like the restaurant, is the full width of the ship and of generous length. This is the reception hall, or palm court, as it might more properly be called, since it is embowered in palms. This apartment is designed to be the social centre of the ship for those who love conversation, a cigarette, or after-dinner coffee. And here, too, the orchestra — with a superb grand piano as one of the instruments — gives concerts and plays for dancing. The general atmosphere is that of a fashionable club at a Continental pleasure resort.

The Belgenland'S second cabin has broad deck space, a very large verandah cafe, a handsome smoking room, a children's playroom, a gymnasium, and a dining room fitted, like that in first cabin, with small tables. Second class Passengers also enjoy a library and a large lounge, both looking out on the promenade deck and having bay windows like those in a spacious house.

The staterooms in second class are large and handsomely equipped. Most of the rooms have hot and cold running water, ample light and ventilation, electric light and fine fittings throughout. Some rooms contain twp berths, others four.

In a word the Belgenland has been designed to provide the greatest possible degree of comfort for every passenger.
