Passenger Information

REFUND OF UNITED STATES HEAD TAX

Under revised United States Government regulations Head Tax paid at the time of booking by passengers holding visitors' visaes (Section 3, paragraph 2.) and Canadian, Mexican, etc., domiciled citizens (who do not require vise for temporary admission to the U.S.A.), is refundable only when passengers obtain from the U.S. Immigration Inspector at port of arrival a Certificate of Exemption confirming that they are not assessed for Head Tax.

These Certificates of Exemption are only issued to passengers who satisfy the U.S. Immigration Inspector (whose decision is final) that they do not intend to remain in the United States longer than 60 days, and to facilitate immediate refund of Head Tax to such passengers the Purser will also furnish them with a separate receipt for Head Tax.

Unless a Certificate of Exemption is obtained from the U.S. Immigration Inspector Head Tax cannot be refunded even though passengers eventually depart from the United States within the 60 days limit.

Transit Passengers holding U.S. transit vise (Section 3, paragraph 3) who fail to satisfy the U.S. Immigration Inspector that they will depart from the United States within 60 days (thus not being able to obtain Certificate of Exemption), who have not already paid Head Tax will be required to pay the Head Tax to the Purser prior to disembarkation.

Blank declaration forms are obtainable from the Purser. Returning residents of the United States muse declare all articles acquired abroad but wearing apparel and personal effects taken overseas from the U.S. in the first case are entitled to be passed free of duty upon return.

An exemption of $100.00 worth of purchases is allowed each returning resident, subject to certain conditions which will be detailed by the Customs officer. Visitors may take in free of duty wearing apparel and personal effects not intended for sale, but must declare all articles not included in this category.

Severe penalties are imposed upon persons who make false declarations as to value, ownership or use of articles or who attempt to bribe or recompense a Customs officer.

Customs Examination. All articles liable to Customs duty must be declared. Any passenger who is in doubt should see the Purser or Baggage Master who will provide the latest information available.

On arrival baggage will be grouped alphabetically in Customs shed for examination. To help the passing and claiming of baggage passengers should have one of the Company's labels, bearing the initial letter of their surname, affixed to each piece. The bedroom stewards have a supply of these labels and will affix them prior to landing.

It is for passengers themselves to see that all their baggage is passed by the Customs authorities on landing, and they are specially requested to claim their baggage before leaving the Customs shed, otherwise delay and extra charges for carriage will be incurred in forwarding to destination any baggage not accompanying passengers directly from the ship.

Checking baggage on arrival at New York. Facilities are available whereby passengers may arrange with the ship's Baggage Master for the transfer of their baggage from the Company's pier in New York to any point in Greater New York, Jersey City and Hoboken, including railroad terminals, hotels, residences, express companies or warehouses.

Passengers are thus relieved of this detail after disembarking. Rates and further information regarding this service can be obtained at the Purser's office.

Baggage in Bond. Passengers en route to destinations outside the U.S.A. may have their checked baggage forwarded '* In Bond " to a frontier point under Customs manifest without examination of the contents by a Customs officer at New York. The Purser or Baggage Master will be pleased to supply information.

Baggage Insurance. Passengers are recommended to insure their baggage as the Company's liability is strictly limited in accordance with the terms of the passage contract. Baggage Insurance carrying worldwide cover can be arranged through the Purser's office.

BARBER AND HAIRDRESSER. The ship carries a well-equipped Barber's Shop and competetent Hairdresser.

CATERING. Passengers are invited to advise the Head Waiter of their preference in the matter of diet, and cooking and they can be assured of every attention to their wishes. Cooks of various nationalities are included in the kitchen personnel. It is suggested that passengers order their meals in advance, and the aforementioned official will readily assist passengers in making their choice.

CHEQUES. Passengers are advised that the Purser cannot accept private cheques.

CHANGES IN ACCOMMODATION. The Purser alone is authorised to make changes in -accommodation and ma/ only do so on payment of any difference in fare which may be required according to the Company's current tariffs.

EXCHANGE OF MONEY. For the convenience of passengers the Purser is able to exchange a limited amount of English, U.S. and Canadian money at rates which will be advised on application.

FIRE PRECAUTIONS. Passengers are specially requested to exercise care in disposing of cigar and cigarette ends and matches, and to make use of the receptacles provided for the purpose in the different parts of the ship, in view of the serious consequences which can arise from carelessness in this respect. Throwing lighted cigarettes, etc., overboard should also be avoided.

FIRE AND LIFEBOAT STATIONS. Passengers are earnestly requested to acquaint themselves with the notice in the staterooms regarding lifeboat and fire stations.

The Captain specially appeals to passengers to assist him by promptly mustering at their appointed stations at all times when passenger boat station muster is being held. Only by immediate attendance at this important muster can passengers obtain the necessary instructions which are so vital to the well-being of all on board. The co-operation of every passenger is earnestly desired.

IMPORTATION OF LIQUOR. A considerable quantity of liquor imported in the baggage of passengers is purchased " in bond " at a price below the regular market value in the country of purchase and for that reason attention is called to the fact by the Collector, U.S. Customs Service, that the above market value must be ascertained and declared by the passenger instead of the price actually paid.

PAYMENTS. Passengers should obtain a receipt on the Company's form for any payments made on board for additional passage money, rugs, chairs, excess baggage, etc.

PORTHOLES. As it is dangerous for passengers to handle the ports they are requested to ask the bedroom steward to open and close the ports in the staterooms as may be desired.

For the convenience of those passengers who may be returning from the United States or Canada to Europe and who have not yet made the necessary arrangements the Purser will be pleased to radio for any accommodation required. This will enable passengers to complete their arrangements before leaving the ship and will consequently save them time and trouble after landing.

ROTARIANS travelling by this ship are invited to inspect the Rotary Register at the Purser's office and subscribe their names. The Purser will be glad, providing circumstances permit, to arrange an informal meeting during the voyage.

SPECIAL NOTICE FOR ROUND TRIP PASSENGERS.

All passengers holding return tickets are requested to communicate with the most convenient Company's office, if possible at least a week in advance of their intended sailing from the United States or Canada, so that the necessary formalities may be arranged in connection with their passage.

If for any reason the holder of a return ticket should be unable to travel by the sailing shown thereon, immediate advice should be given to the nearest Company's office, so that any accommodation held can be released and new reservation made in sailing selected.

DEPARTURE FROM AMERICA—U.S. SAILING PERMIT.

All passengers other than U.S. citizens require to obtain a sailing permit or income tax clearance prior to departure from the United States. This document can be obtained without difficulty from the Collector of Internal Revenue in each district, or on personal application, with passport and passage ticket a day or two before sailing, at Room 131, U.S. Custom House, foot of Broadway, New York City.

STEWARDS SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGES. Stewards speaking a number of European languages are available for the convenience of passengers and may be identified by the badge worn on the lapel of their coat bearing the flag of the country the language of which they speak.

THE SURGEON is authorised to make customary charges for his services, subject to the approval of the Captain.

A REGISTERED NURSE is on board, whose services are available as necessary under the direction of the ship's Surgeon.

TAXICABS are no longer permitted by the New York City Authorities to enter any City pier properties for the purpose of receiving or discharging passengers or baggage.

The taxicab facilities heretofore provided on arrival day inside the pier are, therefore, no longer available. Passengers desiring taxicabs upon arrival at New York are now required to go outside the pier and make their own transportation arrangements.

Passengers are warned against using the services of unauthorised porters and baggage transfer men outside the pier gates in New York. Reliable baggage transfer men are available inside the piers. Authorised porters wear " Cunard White Star " blouses which are numbered.

TRAVEL INFORMATION. The Purser's office is at the disposal of passengers for furnishing detailed information concerning steamer, rail or air connections and arrangements can be made for tickets and reservations to be obtained.

UPPER BERTHS. Passengers occupying upper berths can obtain steps for getting in and out thereof on application to the Steward or Stewardess.

VALUABLES. In their own interests passengers are advised not to leave articles of jewellery or other valuables lying about. Articles not required for frequent wear may be deposited with the Purser and will be placed in an envelope sealed in the presence of the passenger for custody in the ship's safe. A receipt will be given but no liability as to contents can be accepted.

Passengers are advised to protect themselves by insurance, which can be arranged on board on application to the Purser.

VALETING SERVICE. A Clothes Pressing Room, in charge of an expert attendant, is provided and work of this kind will be carried out for passengers at the posted charges.
