Pleasure Cruises arranged by the Hamburg - American Line (1907)

Pleasure Cruises arranged by the Hamburg - American Line (1907)

Pleasure Cruises were inaugurated by the Hamburg-American Line 18 years ago, and since then they have rapidly approached perfection through the frequent introduction of new itineraries and the judicious use of all newly gained experience.

Five years ago the Hamburg-American Line considerably extended this service by commissioning several new magnificent twin-screw steamers which were built specially for pleasure cruises, and supply in a manner wholly unprecedented, the demands of this new mode of travelling.

Furnished with such an excellent fleet, as is represented by the steamers Bluecher, Meteor, Oceana and Kronprinzessin Cecilie, the Hamburg-American Line is able to offer a pleasure-cruise program for 1907 which in variety, surpasses the most successful undertakings of previous years.

All particulars concerning the itineraries and fares are contained in the special booklets of the Hamburg-American Line, which may be obtained from the information clerk or pursers on board the Company's passenger steamers.
