Today, Third Class accommodations on the magnificent steamers of the French Line are comparable to the First Class accommodations of not so many years ago.
During the last decade of mechanical and scientific advancement, the French Line has been quick to adopt all new devices provided by modern inventive genius which might contribute to the convenience, comfort and pleasure of ocean travel.
The Normandie, Ile de France, Paris, Champlain and Lafayette combine economy and efficiency in fulfilling the most discriminating requirements. Their Third Class accommodations cannot help but bring you all satisfaction.
