President Liners Travel Brochure - Dollar Steamship Line

In the round-the-world service of the Dollar Steamship President Liners a distinctively higher standard of luxury, comfort and convenience a standard designed to meet the requirements of ocean voyagers who insist upon refinements on a par with those of metropolitan hotels or clubs—is offered.

Every assurance that such a standard has been achieved is embodied in the arrangement of all cabins amidships, the pleasant and commodious state rooms having real twin beds (rather than berths), the abundance of accommodation with private tub and shower baths, the spacious public halls, and a cuisine attuned to these distinctive features.

The President Liners offer five services in one — Round-the-World, Inter coastal, Trans-Pacific, Orient-European, and Trans-Atlantic.
