Third Class, Ticket Offices, and Tickets - What to Know About Ocean Travel - 1924

THIRD CLASS

Our lines have introduced notable comforts in third class. The open steerage has been replaced by enclosed rooms for two, four and six people. Some new steamers were built specially to carry only third class.

Third class now has its public rooms, including lounge and smoking room. The Belgenland has also a third class verandah cafe. Cooking is good and suited to different nationalities, including special cooking for Jewish passengers. Stewards speak several languages and every steamer carries an intetpreter. Ample deck space is provided.

Cost of passage is moderate. Through bookings may be made over connecting railroads to any point in Europe from any point in the United States or Canada, or vice versa. Water connections are made at Southampton for Scandinavian countries and Baltic ports.

The company maintains large hotels for third class passengers at Cherbourg, Antwerp, Southampton and Liverpool. A strong organization in Europe, with representatives in all towns of importance, enables the lines issuing this book to offer the best facilities for the prompt forwarding of third class travelers from inland European points. Special attention is given to forwarding the holders of prepaid tickets bought in America. (See also "Tickets,").

TICKETS

Tickets for ocean passage are issued when accommodations have been paid for in full. It is usually advisable to purchase return portion of ticket before sailing. Tickets are examined at pier before embarkation and are collected at sea.

If a ticket is lost before sailing report the loss to the office or agency through which it was purchased, or if lost on steamer, to purser.

Return Tickets may be purchased on the outward voyage from purser or passenger department representative on board.

Prepaid Tickets can be purchased at any company office in the United States or Canada and mailed to Europe. They are good for one year. A large and strong passenger organization in European countries enables the lines mentioned in this book to forward passengers traveling on prepaid tickets with all possible promptness. Parties are accompanied to the nearest seaport by special conductors employed by our lines. In cases where numbers warrant, special trains are provided. (See also "Ticket Offices").
